‘Skins add Leigh Torrence

At a time when the Redskins are $18 million lighter in the salary-cap wallet and otherwise preoccupied with wooing Robert Griffin III (and praying that Colts owner Jim Irsay doesn’t draft him), G.M. Bruce Allen and company are still taking care of other business.

The team announced on Tuesday afternoon that cornerback Leigh Torrence has re-joined the team.

A seven-year veteran, Torrence spent the last three seasons, and part of a fourth, with the Saints.  Before that, he spent two seasons and part of a third with the Redskins.

In 2007, Torrence appeared in all 16 games in Washington, with one start.

But the story in D.C. continues to be Griffin.  Rich Tandler of CSN Washington joined PFT Live earlier on Tuesday to discuss Griffin and other issues currently relevant to the Redskins.

    Another sign that the 2012 draft will be dedicated to offense, offense, offense. I see a RB in the 3rd, RT and WR in the 4th, OC in the 5th, G in the 6th and another OT in the 7th.

    Hate to disagree with a fellow Skins fan but there is no way that they draft straight offense. They are set at WR-Garcon, Moss, Morgan, Hankerson, Gafney, Paul, Banks, Armstrong. 2 of them don’t make the team.

    They need LBs. Even with Fletcher back, there is very little depth behind the starters.

    I see 2 OL, 2-3 LBs and maybe a RB or TE late with their 6 picks after Griffin.

    Dude Florio no offense, I’m sure Rich Tandler is a nice guy and all but I cannot focus on whats being said when every other word out of his mouth is repeated two, sometimes three times.

    DISagree. i see in round 3, a Right tackle or guard, round four a guard, also round four a RB, then in round 5, an inside linebacker, then a corner.

    Leigh is a good depth move. Need all the support in the secondary they can get.
