According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, the St. Louis Rams have worked out former NFL cornerback Morgan Trent and former NFL defensive lineman Kade Weston. The Rams have been dealing with a multitude of injuries, and while they could use the help on the defensive line, they are especially thin at cornerback. Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation St. Louis Rams blog, Turf Show Times, lays out just how bad it has been for the Rams in the secondary this season:
Losing one cornerback is bad luck. Losing two cornerbacks, starting cornerbacks, is a fluke. Losing ten cornerbacks in a single season, well, someone should probably call Ripley's. The St. Louis Rams added Marquis Johnson to the injured reserve list...[h]e is the tenth cornerback the Rams have lost this season and the sixth corner currently on injured reserve.
Trent, who has played for the Cincinnati Bengals and the Indianapolis Colts, also worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles earlier in the week, has recorded 60 tackles, one interception and one sack in his three-year NFL career.
