WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins brought back a familiar face in unrestricted free agent cornerback Leigh Torrence on Tuesday.

The 5-feet 11-inch, 179-pound Torrence previously played for the the Redskins from 2006-08. During that stretch, the Stanford product recorded 42 tackles, one sack and two passes defensed.

He spent the last four seasons with the New Orleans Saints where he appeared in 38 games without a start. He also assisted on special teams.

Last season Torrence saw action in 13 games where he had one interception, one sack and four passes defensed.

Torrence began his NFL career as undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 2005 who waived him near the end of his first training camp.

The Atlanta Falcons signed him one day later. He appeared in 10 games during his rookie campaign.

In his career, the 30-year-old Torrence has played in 73 regular season games with one start and recorded 94 tackles, two interceptions, 11 passes defensed and 3.5 sacks. He has also added 61 special teams tackles.

Torrence adds depth both at corner and special teams. However, DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson should remain ahead of him on the depth chart.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

The Redskins also agreed to terms with veteran safety Madieu Williams, who played his college ball at the University of Maryland, on Tuesday.

The team also confirmed defensive end Kedric Golston re-signed with the team.
