J. Johnson will retire today as a Raven

Former Ravens outside linebacker Jarret Johnson will sign a one-day contract and retire as a member of the franchise today during a news conference. Johnson previously had expressed his desire to retire with the Ravens after playing the past three seasons for the San Diego Chargers. "I'm excited," Johnson told The Baltimore Sun in a telephone interview Wednesday night. "I had no idea, I didn't know how that whole thing worked. I had just retired and I didn't think anything of it. The response out of Baltimore was awesome. It blew me and my wife away how positive it was. So many people reached out. Johnson, 33, played in the NFL for 12 seasons and was regarded as one of the most respected and toughest players in the league. Johnson had 20 sacks in nine seasons with the Ravens and missed just one game.

Ravens roster moves: The Ravens have cut quarterback Keith Wenning, a sixth-round draft pick in 2014; reserve tight end Phillip Supernaw; and undrafted rookie outside linebacker Darius Allen. Wenning spent time on the practice squad last season. The Ravens have four quarterbacks under contract: Joe Flacco, Matt Schaub, Jerry Lovelocke (Edmondson) and Bryn Renner. The tight end position got crowded during the draft when the Ravens drafted Maxx Williams in the second round and Nick Boyle in the fifth round. Supernaw, who caught three passes for 30 yards in eight games, had signed his exclusive-rights tender. The Ravens signed three undrafted rookies, including James Madison wide receiver Daniel Brown and Rhode Island linebacker Andrew Bose after successful rookie minicamp tryouts, and Alabama offensive guard Leon Brown. The Ravens are expected to place former Oklahoma cornerback Julian Wilson on injured reserve after he broke his leg during the minicamp.
