Ravens release Winters Mill grad Braun

The Baltimore Ravens released rookie offensive lineman Jeff Braun this morning, shortly after acquiring offensive lineman A.Q. Shipley in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts.

Braun, a Winters Mill graduate who played collegiately at West Virginia, signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in late April and was expected to compete for a job as a reserve along the offensive line.

Braun was a three-year starter for West Virginia - at guard each of his final two years and at right tackle as a sophomore in 2010. He was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection as a senior last year.
