No matter where New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith tried to throw the football Sunday, he was rarely able to elude Ravens cornerback Corey Graham . Graham intercepted the turnover-prone quarterback twice during the second half of the Ravens' 19-3 win Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, exploiting the mistakes of the former West Virginia star. It's the second time Graham has had two interceptions in one game in his career. Last season, he intercepted Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning twice in the AFC divisional round.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees recently acknowledged he had few clues about who will emerge as the team's third cornerback. The competition to replace veteran nickel back Corey Graham began to take shape Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers during the Ravens' preseason opener at M&T Bank Stadium. The leading candidates for the vacancy saw their stock travel in opposite directions. Although cornerback Chykie Brown got the start with veteran Lardarius Webb out with a lower-back injury, he didn't capitalize on the opportunity.

The cornerback position was expected to be a strength for the Ravens this season, but they have gotten inconsistent performances from that group, Lardarius Webb and Corey Graham, in particular. The struggles of those two cornerbacks continued in Sunday's 24-18 loss to the Cleveland Browns, a game in which one-time third-string quarterback Jason Campbell threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns. Webb was targeted eight times by Campbell, who completed five of his eight attempts for 71 yards when throwing into his coverage area, according to Pro Football Focus.

In the past, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has been able to add some quality players in the second phase of free agency because of patience, and that won't change in 2014. In 2011, the Ravens added left offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie shortly before the season began and last year signed inside linebacker Daryl Smith on June 5. Smith went on to lead the team in tackles last season with 123. As of Monday, the Ravens were quite comfortable with their 90-player roster. "Basically, most of the players have been pored over and picked through," Newsome said.

Corey Graham exceeded the expectations of just about everyone beyond himself and the Ravens after he signed as a free agent two offseasons ago. He had been a special teams standout for the Chicago Bears before joining the Ravens, who promised him a chance to prove himself as a cornerback. Graham entered the 2012 season fourth on the depth chart at his position, but after injuries to Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith, he found himself in the starting lineup and rarely looked out of place.

In his longest stretch on defense of the season, Corey Graham finished Sunday's 25-15 win against the Cleveland Browns with six tackles. But the cornerback was unable to register an interception or a pass breakup, which contributed to the sixth-year veteran feeling unfulfilled about his play. “It was all right,” Graham said Thursday. “Obviously, some things have got to be better, and I feel like I can play a lot better. I've got to find a way to make more plays. It was up and down, and to me, it wasn't that good.

Reading the eyes of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Ravens cornerback Corey Graham broke on the football and undercut wide receiver Brandon Stokley to intercept the four-time NFL Most Valuable Player in overtime. The pivotal turnover set up rookie kicker Justin Tucker's game-winning 47-yard field goal as the Ravens advanced to the AFC title game following a 38-35 victory in which Graham haunted Manning. Graham also intercepted Manning during the first half, returning an interception 39 yards for a touchdown off a pass intended for wide receiver Eric Decker and deflected by nickel back Chykie Brown.

One of the more pleasant surprises of Ravens training camp thus far has been the play of cornerback Corey Graham. Signed to a two-year deal by the organization in March after he turned last season into a Pro Bowl campaign as a special-teams ace, the former Chicago Bear has impressed the coaching staff enough to join rookie Asa Jackson as the next tandem of cornerbacks after Lardarius Webb, Cary Williams and Jimmy Smith. The one player who is least shocked by Graham's performances is Graham himself.

Looking to bolster their coverage units, which struggled during the 2011 season, the Ravens have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with cornerback and special teams standout Corey Graham. Graham, a fifth-round pick out of New Hampshire in 2007, has played five NFL seasons, all with the Chicago Bears. His 75 special teams tackles since 2007 rank third in the NFL during that span, and he represented the Bears in the Pro Bowl last year.   “I definitely see myself making an impact," said Graham at a news conference this afternoon at the Ravens' team facility.

At 6 feet and 204 pounds, Victor Cruz is the second-shortest wide receiver on the New York Giants and the third-lightest. But Cruz's impact on the Giants offense figures to loom large for the Ravens and cornerback Corey Graham. When New York employs its three-receiver set, Cruz usually lines up in the slot, where he leads the NFL in productivity, according to Pro Football Focus. And if he lines up in the slot this Sunday, it will be up to Graham to match up against him. “Victor Cruz, he's great off the line” of scrimmage, Graham said prior to Wednesday's practice.

A year ago at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti couldn't walk 10 feet without being congratulated for his team's victory in Super Bowl XLVII about a month and a half earlier. This year, however, has brought different circumstances for the Ravens' owner. His team finished 8-8 last season, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The offseason has brought some off-the-field turmoil with three Ravens getting arrested in a 22-day span, including star running back Ray Rice, who was charged with simple assault in February after an altercation with his fiancée, Janay Palmer.

Several receiving options remain available on the free-agent market and one big name, the Carolina Panthers' Steve Smith, could become available soon. There are a number of veteran offensive linemen who are still unsigned, while the market at safety and middle linebacker - two positions of need for the Ravens - continues to thin out. However, in Day 2 of free agency, the Ravens focused on taking care of their own. After officially signing Eugene Monroe and declaring him their left tackle “for many years to come,” the Ravens struck a four-year deal with Jacoby Jones, keeping one of the heroes of the team's run to the Super Bowl XLVII title in the organization.

When the free-agent market officially opens at 4 p.m. today, it isn't expected to be long before the top available offensive tackles - Branden Albert (Glen Burnie), Jared Velheer and Rodger Saffold - have new homes. But what about Eugene Monroe ? Four days ago, when the “tampering window” opened and representatives of free agents were allowed to start talking with teams, it seemed inevitable that Monroe would be playing his football somewhere else in 2014. By the end of the weekend, things had seemingly turned in the Ravens' favor and it appeared that the two sides were on the right track to getting a deal done.

Entering the 2013 season, the Ravens knew they would be starting two new safeties. Strong safety Bernard Pollard was released after the Super Bowl and iconic free safety Ed Reed was not re-signed. They did bring back a lot of talent and depth at cornerback, though it also came with uncertainty. Lardarius Webb was working his way back from a major knee injury, Jimmy Smith had yet to emerge as a consistent every-down player and Corey Graham was coming off the best three-month stretch of his life.

NFL general managers aren't unlike most discerning shoppers, scouring the marketplace for bargains and trying to avoid wasting precious dollars. While those intentions aren't always realized for even the smartest talent evaluators, sometimes they strike gold in free agency without having to make a hefty investment. That was the case for the Ravens this season, as the AFC North champions added former Chicago Bears Pro Bowl special-teams ace Corey Graham, former Houston Texans kick returner and wide receiver Jacoby Jones and strong-legged kicker Justin Tucker, an undrafted rookie out of Texas.

Dean Pees likes to joke that he has recently developed a routine before addressing the Ravens' injury-wracked cornerback group on the first full day of practice each week. "Every week, it's like I take attendance in our room to see who shows up," he cracked. Laughs aside, the defensive coordinator and secondary coach Teryl Austin have used glue, string and perhaps a little magic to cobble together a productive cornerback corps despite losing Lardarius Webb for the season in October and getting limited production from Jimmy Smith.

Richard Sherman has said he can name all the cornerbacks that were drafted ahead of him in the 2011 NFL draft, a long list that includes a trio of first-rounders in Arizona's Patrick Peterson, New York's Prince Amukamara and Baltimore's Jimmy Smith and also a handful of players you have never heard of. I wonder if he can name the first cornerback who was selected after him, late in the draft's fifth round. That would be Ravens cornerback Chykie Brown, who came off the board 10 picks after Sherman.

On Monday, the Ravens had to try to shut down Megatron. This weekend, they must deal with Minitron. Julian Edelman might not have the athleticism and imposing stature of Calvin Johnson or an intimidating nickname, but over the past few weeks, Edelman has been one of the NFL's most productive wide receivers. Since Week 12, Edelman has been targeted 51 times by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. He caught 37 of those passes for 414 yards and four touchdowns. Brady threw his way a whopping 19 times in last week's loss to the Miami Dolphins and Edelman had 13 catches for 139 yards and a score.
