McClendon has limited experience but showed a strong arm and good size during the one minicamp practice open to reporters. The 6-foot-5, 219-pound McClendon started his career at North Carolina State before joining the Bears as a graduate transfer last season, where he started one game and appeared in nine.

Overall, he was 81-for-138 with four touchdowns and seven interceptions in his college career. He’s the fourth quarterback on the Ravens’ roster, joining former Baylor standout Robert Griffin III, fellow rookie Trace McSorley and starter Lamar Jackson.

Vahe twice earned All-Big 12 honorable mention and started 45 games over his Longhorns career, mostly at left guard, a position marred by inconsistency for the Ravens last season. The 6-foot-3, 325-pound Vahe competed at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and did an impressive 30 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press at the school’s Pro Day.
