The Ravens released quarterback Keith Wenning, tight end Phillip Supernaw and rookie free agent outside linebacker Darius Allen Tuesday afternoon.

They did so to make room for three undrafted rookie free agents: Alabama guard Leon Brown, James Madison wide receiver Daniel Brown and Rhode Island inside linebacker Andrew Bose. 

Wenning was a sixth-round draft pick out of Ball State last year. He didn't make the 53-man roster in 2014 as the Ravens opted to keep just two quarterbacks, and spent the year on the practice squad.

He was eligible to participate in the Ravens' rookie camp last weekend and did so alongside Bryn Renner and undrafted rookie Jerry Lovelocke (Prairie View A&M).

With the addition of veteran Matt Schaub this offseason, the Ravens have their backup quarterback to Joe Flacco already in place. Renner and Lovelocke will now handle practice reps and battle for a potential third quarterback spot.

The Ravens re-signed Supernaw, an exclusive rights free agent, on April 17, a couple weeks before the draft. After Baltimore drafted a pair of tight ends in Maxx Williams (Round 2) and Nick Boyle (Round 5), the Ravens were suddenly crowded at the position.

Last year, Supernaw bounced between the Ravens practice squad and active roster, and even spent a few weeks with the Kansas City Chiefs. He played in eight games and made three catches for 30 yards.

Colorado State – Pueblo's Allen was an undrafted rookie the Ravens officially signed just before rookie minicamp. He was competing with fellow undrafted rookie outside linebacker Brennen Beyer (Michigan).

Bose is a 6-foot-2, 235-pound inside linebacker product from Huntingtown, Md. He made 125 tackles, including 14 for loss, and 4.5 sacks last year at Rhode Island.

Daniel Brown is a 6-foot-4, 227-pound receiver who has a great size-speed combination. He caught 42 passes for 606 yards and seven touchdowns last season for James Madison.

Leon Brown is a versatile 6-foot-6, 320-pound offensive lineman who can play guard or tackle. He became a full-time starter at right guard during his senior year and is a former four-star junior college transfer.
