Bengals And Cornerback Brandon Ghee Agree To Four-Year Deal

Five down. Four to go.

That's the word from The Enquirer's Joe Reedy who tweets "Third-round pick Brandon Ghee has agreed to terms, making him the fifth #bengals draft pick signed." According to Aaron Wilson, the deal will last the typical four years (as with most non-first round rookie contracts are). Wilson continues that the "the deal includes the standard base salaries of $320,000, $405,000, $490,000, $575,000" (or $1.79 million) with the place he's slotted to provide a signing bonus that will "significantly boost the maximum value of the contract."

Brandon Ghee is the newest cornerback that the Bengals drafted giving them a pretty talented collection heading into Training Camp, starting with Leon Hall and Johnathan Joseph, Adam Jones and Morgan Trent. Last year the Bengals took five cornerbacks into the regular season; so you can largely expect that this roster of cornerbacks will be your 2010 cornerback squad -- unless of course they decide to transition a corner or two as a safety allowing guys like David Jones and Johnny Sears a chance.

For all of the Bengals 2010 Draft Pick Signings (including this one), head over to our chart.

UPDATE: Joe Reedy writes that Ghee's deal is worth $2.438 million. If you subtract his base salary ($1.79 million), you get a $648,000 signing bonus.
