The Ravens have been busy with roster moves on Tuesday.

The organization announced that it had been awarded tight end Ryan Taylor from waivers. Taylor was last with the Green Bay Packers in a reserve role, though he did participate some on special teams. Taylor was a seventh-round draft pick out of North Carolina in 2011 and has been on the Packers' 53-man roster until Monday, when Green Bay decided to part ways.

It appears Taylor was on the Ravens' radar as they decided to swoop in and claim him. Baltimore waived tight end Phillip Supernaw to make room for Taylor. Over the past four years, Taylor has appeared in 50 games.

In addition to the move at tight end, the Ravens added defensive end Steven Means to the practice squad. He replaces outside linebacker John Simon, who left to join Houston's 53-man roster earlier Tuesday.
