OWINGS MILLS, Md. —

The Baltimore Ravens strengthened their special teams by agreeing Friday to a two-year deal with cornerback Corey Graham and on a three-year contract Brendon Ayanbadejo.

Graham, a Pro Bowl special-teamer for the Chicago Bears, previously visited the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings. Graham intercepted a career-high three passes with one forced fumble last season and should play a role in Baltimore's secondary.

In five NFL seasons, Graham has 180 tackles, four interceptions and two forced fumbles.

The Bears fifth-round draft pick from New Hampshire, Graham's 75 special-teams tackles ranks third in the NFL since 2007.

The 35-year-old Ayanbadejo finished second on the Ravens last season with nine special teams tackles. He has 173 career special-teams tackles and has been selected to three Pro Bowls.

As a reserve inside linebacker, Ayanbadejo had 27 tackles, 1 1/2 sacks and one fumble recovery in 2011.
