It appears the Washington Redskins have added another defensive back, addressing a position in desperate need of some depth for the upcoming season. Morgan Trent, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars, broke the news himself, via, what else, twitter:
Landed in AZ to find out that I've been claimed by the Washington Redskins! Excited to wear the burgundy and Gold!— Morgan Trent (@morgantrent37) June 1, 2012
The former University of Michigan standout was drafted in the sixth round in 2009 by the Bengals, and played two seasons in Cincinnati before being released in November of 2011. He was signed by the Colts a week later, but released by Indianapolis less than a month after signing, and was most recently a member of the Jaguars.
