Ravens re-sign tight end Phillip Supernaw to practice squad, source says

Tight end Phillip Supernaw rejoins Ravens after being cut Tuesday and clearing waivers.

The Ravens officially signed tight end Phillip Supernaw to their practice squad Wednesday night, according to a league source.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh had said previously the team intended to re-sign Supernaw. He cleared waivers after being released from the 53-man roster Tuesday.

The 6-foot-5, 248-pound reserve tight end caught one pass for minus-two yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. It was his first NFL regular-season reception.

Supernaw was previously with the Houston Texans after going undrafted out of Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas, where he was a four-year starter.

At Ouachita Baptist, Supernaw caught 64 passes for 710 yards and 10 touchdowns as a sophomore and was named first-team All-Gulf South Conference. He was later a two-time all-conference second-team selection.

The Texans released Supernaw in May and he signed with the Ravens that month. He was cut by the Ravens during their final major roster cutdown before the season and joined their practice squad.
