FULLBACK ADDED

One of the Dolphins' strongest positions is fullback, thanks to the presence of Rob Konrad and Deon Dyer. But that didn't stop the team from picking up additional depth at the position with former Ravens starter Obafemi Ayanbadejo coming to terms with the Dolphins.

Ayanbadejo, a four-year veteran from San Diego State, started four games at fullback for the Ravens last season and four games the previous year when Baltimore went on to capture the Super Bowl.

The 6-2, 235-pound Ayanbadejo rushed for 173 yards and caught 24 passes for 121 yards last season. He became a free agent when the Ravens declined to make him a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent on March 1.

Because of the presence of Konrad and Dyer, Ayanbadejo faces a difficult in battle in trying to make the final roster. His best chance might be to impress on special teams.

In any event, he represents a good insurance policy should anything happen to Konrad or Dyer.

Ayanbadejo is a native of Chicago. His father is Nigerian and his mother is Irish. The name Obafemi means "God loves me."
