Brandon Bing Competing For Spot At Crowded Cornerback Position

When it comes to former Rutgers players currently attending New York Giants rookie mini-camp, running back Joe Martinek has been generating most of the buzz. Cornerback Brandon Bing has been noticed by at least one important person, however. That would be Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.

“He is not a surprise because he worked and he is enthusiastic. He worked last year on the practice squad. And then coming into this camp he is showing what he can do,” Fewell said Saturday. "We are excited about him competing for one of those jobs this spring as well as this fall. He has picked up where he left off from practice from the playoffs, etc. So, yes, he has performed very well.

The numbers don’t appear to be in Bing’s favor when it comes to making the 53-man roster this fall. The Giants have Corey Webster, Terrell Thomas, 2011 first-round pick Prince Amukamara, this season’s third-round pick, Jayron Hosley, free-agent signee Antwaun Molden and several other veteran corners competing for jobs. Among those veterans are Justin Tryon, Michael Coe, Brian Witherspoon and Bruce Johnson.

Bing, 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, did make one highlight play Saturday morning, slapping away a long pass intended for wide receiver Rueben Randle, the Giant’ 2012 second-round draft pick. It is likely he will need to make a lot more of those to have a legitimate shot at making the roster.
