Brandon Ghee signs with San Diego Chargers

USA TODAY Sports

Another Bengals player is gone after Brandon Ghee signed with the Chargers.

The biggest need for the Cincinnati Bengals coming into the offseason was another cornerback to add insurance to an aging and injury-prone unit. With Leon Hall set to possibly miss the start of the year as he rehabs from an Achilles tear, Adam Jones, Terence Newman and Dre Kirkpatrick are the only two "proven" corners on the roster.

That's because Brandon Ghee isn't coming back after he signed a two-year deal with the San Diego Chargers:

After being drafted in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by way of Wake Forrest, Ghee has been too injury-prone himself to ever get significant snaps in Cincinnati. Just this past year saw him inactive for Games 1-3 due to a concussion, and for Games 5-7 due to thigh injury.

Ghee has played in just 23 games over his 4-year career, and has never recorded an NFL interception. He did register five pass deflections in 2013, but still was mostly relegated to fourth-string behind Newman, Hall and Kirkpatrick.

This isn't a real loss for the Bengals, who needed to add another young corner via the draft anyhow. It only ensures they'll do so early, possibly even in the first round this May.
