Horton was drafted out of UCLA in the 7th round (249th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. Horton was a regular starter during his rookie season but saw his playing time decline afterwards. From 2008-2010, Horton made 122 tackles (91 solo), 1 sack and three interceptions. He was cut from the Redskins roster last season and didn't play any games.
Expect to see Horton trying to compete for a spot on the special teams unit for the Giants next season.
