Ravens sign outside linebacker D.J. Roberts, cut quarterback Nick Stephens

The Ravens have signed undrafted rookie outside linebacker D.J. Roberts and cut quarterback Nick Stephens.

Roberts participated in the Ravens' rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

He played collegiately at Tennessee-Martin where he rhad 53 tackles, 11 for losses, four sacks and a forced fumble last season. He finished his career with 12.5 sacks.

The 6-foot-2, 252-pounder played defensive end in college but projects to outside linebacker in the Ravens' 3-4 defense.

Stephens is a former Tartleton State player who began his career at Tennessee. He was signed to the Ravens' practice squad in October and signed to a reserve-future deal after the season.

The Ravens now have three quarterbacks on the roster: Joe Flacco and backups Tyrod Taylor and Keith Wenning, a rookie sixth-round draft pick.
