Jacksonville Jaguars Release Former Bengals Cornerback Morgan Trent

If you're going to commit defensive pass interference, then you might as well go all out.

Former Bengals cornerback Trent Morgan, selected in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL draft, was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday to make room for cornerback and return specialist Dontrell Johnson on the Jaguars 90-man roster. Trent played 30 games in three seasons with the Bengals before being waived in early November of 2011, where he played one game with the Indianapolis Colts and five games (including two starts) with Jacksonville.

During his three-year NFL career, Trent generated three interceptions and 11 passes defensed. During his most recent campaign in 2011, Trent posted a career-high two interceptions within a five-game stretch to close out last year with the Jaguars.

It's highly unlikely that the Bengals will be interested in Trent, not with the log-jam building at cornerback. On the other hand the Bengals had five cornerbacks (including a rehabilitating Leon Hall) rest during their most recent OTA sessions this week, so it's entirely possible the team brings Trent in as a body to prevent a shortage at the position while allowing guys like Nate Clements, Dre Kirkpatrick and Shaun Prater to rest.

Again. We don't see Trent's return. Would we be surprised if he does? Not at all.
