Ravens tight end Phillip Supernaw signed his $510,000 exclusive-rights free agent tender Friday.
Supernaw joined the Ravens last offseason following a previous stint with the Houston Texans.
After being off and on the Ravens' practice squad and a two-game stint with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he caught one pass for three yards, Supernaw played six games on the Ravens' active roster. He caught two passes for 27 yards.
Supernaw is the second tight end on the Ravens' depth chart behind starter Crockett Gilllmore with Owen Daniels having signed with the Denver Broncos and Dennis Pitta's future uncertain after twice dislocating and fracturing his right hip. Supernaw could be in line for an expanded role, a potential opportunity that hinges on how he performs as well as what the team does during the NFL draft and with free agents between now and the start of the regular season.
Supernaw first signed with the Texans in 2012 after going undrafted out of Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas,...Read more
Penn State safety Adrian Amos has been invited to the Ravens' local prospect day, according to sources.
The workout is Tuesday at the Ravens' training complex.
The Calvert Hall graduate had a private workout Thursday for Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly and vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz at his high school.
Amos has also visited the Eagles.
He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds at the Nittany Lions' pro day workout. That was an improvement on his 4.56 time at the NFL scouting combine.
The 6-foot, 218-pound Amos also bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times after not doing that test at the combine.
He is projected to be picked somewhere between the third and fifth rounds by draft analysts.
Delaware middle linebacker David Mackall has been invited to Tuesday's Ravens' local prospect day.
The Edmondson graduate recorded 84 tackles (3.5 for losses), one sack, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery last season.
"I need to earn a spot," Mackall said. "That's all I'm thinking about. I have a tough-minded attitude. I'm great in the locker room. I'm a team player. As a football player, you get a smart guy that can do his job.
"I'm explosive. I'm multidimensional. I can play more than one position. I can put my hand in the dirt. I can stand up as an outside linebacker. Covering isn't my strength, but I'm not bad at it and I'm working on that."
A 6-foot-3, 233-pound Maryland transfer, Mackall is a converted defensive end who played outside linebacker at Delaware in 2013 when he started 10 games.
Mackall had 75 tackles and two sacks as a junior with eight tackles for losses, an interception and a forced fumble.
He is planning on retesting at the Ravens' workout...Read more
Western Carolina safety Ace Clark has been invited to the Ravens' local prospect day Tuesday, according to NFL sources.
The Germantown graduate and former Clarksburg standout ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds at his Pro Day workout.

Clark could project to outside linebacker in the NFL.
Clark finished with 339 career tackles, including 168 solo and 6.5 for a loss, and three interceptions. He ranks second in Catamounts history in tackles.
Last season, Clark had 78 tackles, including 3.5 for losses, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and an interception against South Florida.
Clark played in the Medal of Honor Bowl all-star game and the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly conducted a private workout for Penn State safety Adrian Amos today at Calvert Hall.
Amos has also visited the Eagles at their training complex in Philadelphia and has worked out for an undisclosed AFC team.
The Eagles also sent vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz to the workout.
Amos improved his 40-yard dash to 4.39 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout.
The Calvert Hall graduate ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds at the NFL scouting combine in February, the seventh-fastest time among safeties.
The 6-foot, 218-pound former All-Big Ten Conference honorable-mention selection also bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times Friday after not doing that test at the combine.
