Ravens sign Will Rackley, two others

The Jaguars have had a habit of acquiring players who previously played for the Seahawks since Gus Bradley, and now their former players are proving to be popular in Baltimore.

The Ravens announced that they have signed guard Will Rackley and fullback Shaun Chapas, both of whom were let go by the Jaguars late last week. Rackley was a 2011 third-round pick in Jacksonville started 25 games for the Jaguars over the last three years, but will likely be trying to earn a backup spot behind Kelechi Osemele and Marshal Yanda. Chapas was on the Jags’ practice squad last year and he’s played six games for the Lions and Cowboys over the course of his career.

Baltimore also signed tight end Phillip Supernaw, who played one game for the Texans last season. He tried out for the Ravens over the weekend and joins Owen Daniels, another former Texan, as a new Ravens tight end.

The Ravens released tight end Matt Furstenberg, linebacker D.J. Bryant and defensive lineman Cody Larsen.

    Signed them…Why don’t you just say that you rented them for training camp.

    Besides being the little sisters of the Steelers, Bal and Cin have another thing in common – Jacksonville cast-offs are an upgrade. They’ll all be starting Wk 1.

    I was going to say something disparaging about the Steelers but then looked at their past six drafts and thought that they suffered enough.

    Someone should check the head-to-head record between the Ravens and Steelers the past 5… 7… 10 years.

    The Ravens and Steelers have split pretty much every year. The series is dead even. They’ve both won the same amount of Super Bowls since the Ravens have been in the league.

    So both sides can shut up until one can truly dominate.

    The steelers have been to three SB and the Ravens have been to two. The difference is the a Ravens want to be respected like the Steelers are but…..they need to keep trying to grow up.

    Well I just hope we can live up to those lofty Steeler expectations of losing to Tim Tebow in the playoffs.

    Speaking of lofty expectations, as soon as the FO realizes your DL is falling woefully short of theirs, you’ll need to change your name to hakunacutngata.

    Thumbed-up your draft comment though. At least A Brown’s in there, and Le’Veon, assuming good health.

    The Steelers USED to be respected in he league.

    No you’re right the Steelers can draft WRs. One mess up (Sweed) but waaaaaaaaaaaay too many hits for a Ravens fan. As opposed to one hit (Torrey) and way too many misses (Clayton, Taylor, D Will…ugh)

    As for our D line I imagine it’ll be Jernigan sooner rather than later unless Ngata realizes he’s on a one year deal.

    Is it September yet?

    Definitely a long offseason brother. T Smith’s top-notch, I’m just glad D Mason ain’t around anymore to give us fits.

    Travis Taylor was an okay WR, but since he was a 10th overall pick he certainly wasn’t what he was drafted to be.

    Mark Clayton was actually a very good WR, but kept getting injured all the time. Had he remained healthy he might have been a very good pick.

    Demetrius Williams was a 4th round pick. A hit or miss.

    But here are the Ravens WR drafts since they came to be in 1996:

    1996:
    4th: Jermaine Lewis (not much of a WR, EXCELLENT return man)
    6th: James Roe

    1998:
    2nd: Patrick Johnson

    1999:
    4th: Brandon Stokley (decent career)

    2000:
    1st: Travis Taylor (bust as 1st rounder, if a 3rd or lower would have been a good pick)

    2002:
    4th: Ron Johnson
    6th: Javin Hunter

    2004:
    3rd: Devard Darling
    6th: Clarence Moore
    7th: Derek Abney

    2005:
    1st: Mark Clayton

    2006:
    4th: Demetrius Williams

    2007:
    3rd: Yamon Figurs

    2008:
    4th: Marcus Smith
    7th: Justin Harper

    2010:
    5th: David Reed

    2011:
    2nd: Torrey Smith
    4th: Tandon Doss

    2012:
    6th: Tommy Streeter

    2013:
    7th: Aaron Mallette

    2014:
    7th: Mike Campanaro

    Everybody thinks the Ravens blew a ton of top picks on WR’s, but they have only drafted 2 first round WR’s and missed on both, and two second round WR’s and missed on one and hit big on the other.
