(12/30/2013) The Ravens signed eight practice squad members to reserve-future deals: tight end Matt Furstenburg, wideout Kamar Aiken, defensive tackle Cody Larsen, offensive tackle David Mims, tight end Nathan Overbay, receiver Gerrard Sheppard, quarterback Nick Stephens and center Reggie Stephens.
Those players are signed for the 2014 season even though the season does not officially begin until the start of the league's new year. The deals enable the players to keep working with the team, giving them a better chance to compete for roster spots.
