Former Ravens reserve QB found dead in Michigan

A former Baltimore Ravens reserve quarterback was found dead Tuesday in northern Michigan, according to multiple reports.

The news comes two days after Cullen Finnerty, 30, first went missing while fishing near a family cottage Sunday night.

The cause of death wasn't known as of late Tuesday night, but Lake County Undersheriff Dennis Robinson, per NFL.com, said that foul play wasn't suspected.

Finnerty signed with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2007 after a record-setting college career at perennial Division II powerhouse Grand Valley State. He spent the majority of the year on the Ravens' practice squad and was promoted to the active roster for the final two games of the regular season.

The Ravens didn't tender Finnerty as an exclusive rights free agent after the season. He signed with the Denver Broncos as a free agent but was released by the Broncos later that offseason.

At Grand Valley State, Finnerty was a four-year starter, won three Division II national championships and finished his college career as the winningest quarterback in NCAA history for all divisions.

Grand Valley State was 51-4 with Finnerty as its starting quarterback.
