Former Calvert Hall QB Kenji Bahar among 3 signed to Ravens practice squad; OT Adrian Ealy released

The Ravens have found a replacement for third-string quarterback Trace McSorley.

A day after the former Penn State standout was claimed by the Arizona Cardinals, the Ravens signed former Calvert Hall and Monmouth quarterback Kenji Bahar to the practice squad. The Ravens also signed cornerback Kevin Toliver and offensive tackle Jaryd Jones-Smith to the practice squad, while offensive tackle Adrian Ealy was released.

Bahar, who spent time with the Ravens this offseason, set school records at Monmouth, a Football Championship Subdivision program, for touchdown passes (70), passing yards (9,642) and 300-yard games (nine). The Baltimore native practiced with the team during rookie minicamp in May and training camp in August after starter Lamar Jackson tested positive for COVID-19. Bahar played briefly at the end of the Ravens’ 20-3 preseason victory over the Carolina Panthers on Aug. 21, but did not attempt a pass, rushing twice for minus-3 yards.

Toliver made the Chicago Bears’ 53-man roster as an undrafted free agent in 2018 out of LSU, appearing in 15 games as a rookie and 12 games in 2019. He played two games for the Denver Broncos in 2020 after being released by the Bears before suffering a torn ACL last December.

With Jimmy Smith (hip/neck) and Anthony Averett (thigh) out, the Ravens had just three cornerbacks active for Sunday’s 16-13 win in Chicago.

Jones-Smith is returning to Baltimore’s practice squad after being released last week. The 2018 undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh has been with five NFL teams and started training camp with the Las Vegas Raiders before being released during final roster cuts. He has played in three NFL games during his career.

Ealy, a 2020 undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma, was released during final roster cuts and signed with the practice squad the following day. The Ravens signed offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, a first-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2015, to the practice squad Oct. 27 after he was released by the Seattle Seahawks.
