Former Saints cornerback Leigh Torrence (2008-2011) is also looking for a team since he was also released by the Washington Redskins on Friday as well.

Torrence became a free agent this season and after garnering little interest from the Saints, he decided to sign with the Redskins whom he has played for previously from 2006-2008.

Mainly regulated to special teams and backup duties at cornerback, Torrence doesn’t have that much in the way of impressive numbers.  For his career he has 130 tackles and two interceptions.

The two interceptions came from 2010 when he intercepted Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the other from this past season in 2011 when he intercepted Indianapolis Colts quarterback Curtis Painter.  Painter’s interception was returned for a touchdown.

At thirty years of age and an average skill set, it could be tough for Torrence to find a team.  He has also been a member of  the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons.
