As much as any unit on the roster, the Redskins' secondary qualifies as a work in progress.
Over the weekend, another option was added to the depth chart mix.
The 26-year-old Trent, a sixth round pick by the Bengals in 2009, played three seasons in Cincinnati including six games last season before being released. Following one game with the Colts, the 6-foot-1 corner closed out the 2011 campaign in Jacksonville. During a five-game stretch, the former University of Michigan defensive back totalled two starts and two interceptions.
Trent's primary value could come on special teams. He joins a crowded corner position where Leigh Torrence, Kevin Barnes, Brandyn Thompson, Richard Crawford, Chase Minnifield are battling for roster space behind starters DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson plus projected nickel corner Cedric Griffin.
