The San Diego Chargers were thin at cornerback entering free agency, with only six players under contract. Of those six, only Shareece Wright, Marcus Gilchrist and Crezdon Butler have ever suited up in an NFL game, and Gilchrist shifted primarily to safety in 2013. Thus, the team needed to reinforce the position and helped do so by agreeing to a two-year contract with Brandon Ghee.
Formerly with Cincinnati, the 6-0, 200-pounder played the last four seasons with the Bengals after being selected in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft (96th overall) out of Wake Forest. He has appeared in 23 games, tallying 17 tackles and five passes defensed. He has unfortunately battled injuries during his career, most notably missing the entire 2012 season due to a wrist injury suffered in training camp. Last year he played in 10 games, registering six tackles with five passes defensed.
The addition of Ghee capped off a busy day at Chargers Park as the Bolts also added three other players in Kavell Conner, Kellen Clemens and Reggie Walker. Overall, the Chargers have made nine transactions during free agency, also signing Donald Butler, Darrell Stuckey, Chad Rinehart, Donald Brown and David Johnson.
