Ballentine was one of the last players cut after training camp and landed on the practice squad. However, he’s been called up several times this year and is now on the 53-man roster.
Ballentine has replaced Valentine when the rookie has had his struggles. His number will get called again, regardless of how well Valentine plays. He will see the field a ton, considering Alexander is dealing with a back injury, Stokes is on the injured reserve, and the play of the other cornerbacks has been inconsistent at best. Will he rise to the occasion?
