The Washington Redskins signed veteran cornerback David Macklin yesterday, adding depth to a cornerback position that was victimized last season. After trading safety Adam Archuleta and releasing cornerback Mike Rumph, Macklin is the first defensive back the Redskins have added this offseason.

Macklin, 28, began his career with the Indianapolis Colts after being selected out of Penn State in the third round of the 2000 draft. He spent the last three seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, and has long been eyed this offseason by the Redskins' coaches to challenge cornerback Ade Jimoh.
