The Cincinnati Bengals announced the signing of quarterback Keith Wenning on Wednesday.

Wenning was originally drafted by the Baltimore Ravens with the 194th overall pick in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He was signed to the Raven's practice squad last year after failing to make the 53-man roster. He was then signed to their 90-man offseason roster, but was cut in May. He eventually signed with the Atlanta Falcons, who cut him earlier this month.

A four-year starter in college, Wenning was a two-time captain who threw for 4,148 yards with 35 touchdowns and only seven interceptions as a senior.

According to the school's official website, Wenning set multiple school records, including pass completions (1,035), attempts (1,642), passing yards (11,402) and touchdowns (92).

Wenning's 4,148 passing yards in 2013 was the third-highest mark in a single season in Mid-American Conference history. The two guys ahead of him are Miami's Ben Roethlisberger (4,486 in 2003) and Marshall's Byron Leftwich (4,268 in 2002).

Wenning finished his career with a 27-20 mark in 47 starts.
