Rashaan Melvin was released by the Ravens on Tuesday.
A 2013 UDFA, Melvin surprisingly ended up making starts last season, as the Ravens defensive backfield was decimated by injuries. He turned in a couple of nice performances, before Tom Brady and the New England offense picked on him relentlessly in a playoff game. Melvin made just one appearance this season, and he got the same treatment from Andy Dalton and the Bengals. It's not a great sign for Melvin's NFL future that he was released by a team whose biggest weakness corresponds with his position.
Supernaw was mostly a reserve in 2014 and had two catches for 27 yards. Trawick is a backup safety that plays on special teams coverage units. Melvin was signed off of the Dolphins' practice squad after injuries decimated the cornerbacks. Jensen was a 2013 draft pick that ended up spending the majority of 2014 on the practice squad.
Neither deal includes guaranteed money or a signing bonus.
Melvin started two of three games he played in 2014 and recently underwent shoulder surgery. Trawick played in all but two games last season and registered seven tackles. Jensen was active for just one game in 2014.
