Neat!

I was a little worried that Reggie Walker would end up with Ken Whisenhunt in Tennessee, but I'm glad to see him stick. He played well at ILB, OLB, and is a former special teams captain with the Arizona Cardinals. Those are the types of veterans that you keep around if they don't cost a ton and aren't looking for a starting job.

Now, who is this Brandon Ghee fella?

A former 3rd round pick (2010) for the Bengals, Ghee stuck around for four seasons without ever earning a start. In his defense, the Bengals CBs have been quite good for a while.

Ghee played in 10 games last season, the most of his career, and earned a very favorable 4.9 rating from PFF.

A #1 starter opposite Shareece Wright? No. A backup plan in case Wright, Marcus Gilchrist, and Steve Williams get injured? Absolutely. I have no issue with Tom Telesco building the depth back at CB before finding his #1 guy, and Ghee seems like a very solid depth guy with some actual upside.
