Redskins Sign Leigh Torrence

New, comments

The Redskins have added yet another defensive back this afternoon in Leigh Torrence. Torrence, an Atlanta native, was an undrafted free agent signing out of Stanford for the Packers in 2005. Torrence has seen playing time for the Falcons in '05 and joined the Redskins in 2007 where he appeared in 25 games over two seasons. Torrence then went to the Saints where he has spent the last four seasons.

Torrence is now 30 and never started a game for the Saints. He did score his first career touchdown on a 42 yard interception in a 62-7 beat down of the Colts this year.

He has been praised for his work in the community, most notably with the Sojourner Truth Academy in New Orleans.
