If the Bengals decide to keep five corners on the final 53-man roster, Brandon Ghee is the favorite to grab the final spot.
With Leon Hall, Terence Newman, Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick already locks to make the grade, Ghee needs to perform over the next few weeks to ensure that he remains above the likes of Shaun Prater.
Ghee had been putting together a solid game in Atlanta before he was forced off the field with a head injury—another setback in a spectacularly injury-prone career.
The fourth-year cornerback had an interception in the second quarter that would go on to produce a Giovani Bernard TD on the ensuing possession.
Behind Ghee we have Shaun Prater, the likely sixth man (if there is one), followed by a scrum of Chris Lewis-Harris, Onterio McCalebb, Troy Stoudermire and Terrence Brown.
In reality, Ghee is primarily competing against himself. Shaun Prater provides the only real threat to upend him, but provided Ghee remains injury-free, he should seal the deal.
