Date:

Ravens waived QB Keith Wenning, TE Phillip Supernaw and LB Darius Allen.

A 2014 sixth-rounder, Wenning spent his rookie year on the practice squad. Wenning has NFL size (6-foot-3, 218 pounds), but lacks arm strength and athleticism. He could have trouble finding work as a camp arm.

Ravens signed QB Keith Wenning, QB Bryn Renner, DB Victor Hampton, DB Quinton Pointer, OT Marcel Jones, TE Allen Reisner, TE Konrad Reuland, FB Kiero Small, and DE Zach Thompson to reserve/future deals.

Tyrod Taylor is a free agent, so Wenning could compete to be Joe Flacco's primary backup in 2015 training camp.

Ravens signed sixth-round QB Keith Wenning to a four-year contract.

Wenning has good size at 6-foot-3 and 218 pounds but lacks arm strength and athleticism. He would seem to have a decent shot to beat out underwhelming Tyrod Taylor for No. 2 duties in new OC Gary Kubiak's West Coast offense.

Ravens selected Ball State QB Keith Wenning with the No. 194 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Wenning (6-foot-2 5/8, 218) made 47 starts for the Cardinals, logging a 27-20 record, 92:42 TD-to-INT ratio, and 63.0 completion rate. He was a second-team All-MAC pick as a senior, behind Northern Illinois' Jordan Lynch. Wenning is a sub-par athlete (5.00 forty, 8-foot-4 broad jump) and lacks arm strength to drive the ball, but shows composure in the pocket and could perhaps keep the chains moving if eventually forced to make NFL spot starts. He profiles as a long-term backup.

Bears GM Phil Emery revealed he recently did a "study" that showed late-round quarterback draft picks aren't worth the trouble.

Some people seem to believe late-round QBs can be "developed," but it doesn't happen. "That developmental theory doesn't hold a whole lot of water," Emery said. "So who has gotten developed? There isn't a single quarterback after the third round since 2006 that has been a long-term starter. ... And most of them (third-round QBs) have been wiped out of the league." Emery's analysis doesn't bode well for the likes of Keith Wenning (Ball State) and Brett Smith (Wyoming).
