Redskins Offseason: Morgan Trent Tweets That Washington Has Claimed Him

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:

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.
