Ravens re-sign LB McClain, ink two others

The Baltimore Ravens brought back linebackers Jameel McClain and Brendon Ayanbadejo and signed cornerback Corey Graham on Friday.

According to reports, the deals for McClain and Ayanbadejo are for three years while the signing of Graham is for two years.

McClain, 26, registered a career-high 84 tackles to go with a sack and an interception in 16 games last season.

Over his four-year NFL career, all with the Ravens, the Syracuse product has 201 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks in 64 contests.

Ayanbadejo and Graham should help on specials teams where the Ravens struggled last season, ranking 31st on yards per kickoff return and 24th on yards per punt return.

The 35-year-old Ayanbadejo is a three-time (2006-2008) special teams Pro Bowler, while Graham was a special teams Pro Bowler for the NFC a year ago.
