In the Brown vs. Gorrer battle, I have Gorrer getting the win.
The Baltimore Ravens currently have eight cornerbacks on their roster and one of the best crew of cornerbacks in the league. Chances are, they'll cut that number down to six for the regular season, and it's looking like either Chykie Brown or Danny Gorrer could be one of the two cut from the active roster.
Brown is in his second year in the league and spent the majority of his rookie season helping out on special teams. Special teams are also Gorrer's forte, which is a major reason why he was promoted from the practice squad last September.
Gorrer was active for 11 games last season and performed well in spot-duty covering New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes in Week 4. Brown, on the other hand, didn't get any real on-field time last season beyond special teams.
The Ravens brought on another cornerback in this year's draft—Asa Jackson, whom they selected in the fifth round. Jackson's biggest strength is kick and punt returns, and for that reason, he should win a roster spot. That puts both Brown and Gorrer in jeopardy.
My impression currently is that the Ravens keep Gorrer on the active roster and release Brown if he's not practice squad-eligible.
