Redskins sign E.J. Biggers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Atlanta Falcons Getty Images

The Redskins have added depth to their secondary with the acquisition of free agent E.J. Biggers.

A league source tells PFT that Biggers came to terms with the Redskins today.

Biggers was a 2009 seventh-round draft pick of the Buccaneers when Raheem Morris was the Bucs’ head coach. Morris is now the Redskins’ defensive backs coach, and Washington has been attempting to acquire players Morris has previously coached: The Redskins were also in the running for free agent cornerback Aqib Talib before Talib decided to return to New England.

Last season Biggers started 12 games for the Bucs.

    Current thinking for the skins secondary: He’s got dreads? Sign him.

    They need much more depth then this silly slop. Chip Kellys intricate offensive 11 headed monster machine tour 2013 will chew him up and spit out bones. Back to the basement for this one legged QB team. Eagles are back in business, the business is winning, and business is good.

    That might seriously push the skins over the top, he’ll be able to shutdown the team’s #1 wr. Looks like an appearance to the big bowl for the skins, book it!

    Get to his name, Redskins fans. You’re going to be seeing the back of his jersey a lot as he frantically chases opposing WRs to the end zone after they’ve blown right by him.

    lol. because the eagles have addressed their wonderful OL, secondary needs, and their average-at-best WRs.

    As a 3rd corner EJ is perfectly serviceable. Definitely not a starter in this league though.

    Also, I think this should confirm that Raheem is already plotting his takeover of the Redskins from Shanahan by bringing in his guys, who you know, totally sucked for him? At least they’re loyal I guess…

    I see flavordave finished the kool-aid and is now shooting green heroin. Welcome to Spurrier 2.0. I eagerly await your downward spiral and battery chucking at Kelly come week 5

    flavordave–If you think a coaching change will help a bunch of want-a -bees, you are going to be mighty disappointed, they will be in last or next to last depending on what JJones continues to do

  9. dcdiehard82 says: Mar 20, 2013 12:37 PM

    Ill take it!… Add a few more pieces through the draft and we will be remain NFC east champs…. Eagles suck!!…GO SKINS!

  10. r3alta1k says: Mar 20, 2013 12:39 PM

    I love the hate….its great!! Damm one season and yall are on it. Its starting to be more non-redskins fans commenting on our stories than redskins fans.

    nahhhhhhh. kyle shanahan will be skins HC before morris gets that

    flavordave Pete Carroll’s 18th transition to the pros is working only because he has such a young team that still buys into the college RAH RAH crap. Chip Kelly is inheriting a bunch of millionaires who think their poop is gold laced. the forty five minutes of wind sprints before and after practice each day will not phly in philly. like my old grandpa used to never say ” that fish won’t fry dude.

    All this conversation about how terrible a player this guy is and that guy is that the Redskins sign is missing the point. The Redskins have holes–obviously. They overcame them last year in large part to #10. These signings (Biggers, Trueblood, etc.) are all about one thing. Competition. Would they like to have better competition? You bet. However, the cap penalties made it very difficult if not impossible to get the type of high quality competition they’d like. So, the philosophy is get the best available guys (that we can afford) and throw them in the mix. The ones that deserve to be on the field will distinguish themselves. So I wouldn’t go penciling any of these guys into any starting line-up just yet. That will play itself out in July.

    EJ Biggers is a very good cover CB with good man coverage skills. He is not a great tackler and his ball skills are weak at best. Basically, he is the polar opposite of DeAngelo Hall. Great coverage vs. few INTs while Hall wsa bad coverage vs. numerous INTs. I’d rather have Biggers who is only entering his 5th season. He’s solid.

  17. blackqbwhiterb says: Mar 20, 2013 1:22 PM

    I think the difference between DeAngelo Hall and E.J. Biggers, as far as the Redskins are concerned, is measured in millions of dollars, not in INT’s…..Should have paid Carlos Rogers

  18. timbuttrum says: Mar 20, 2013 1:41 PM

    Yes! a 7th round draft pick from the worst pass defense in football last year.

    Thanks again Mara

  19. bouchez9393 says: Mar 20, 2013 1:55 PM

    As a die hard Bucs fan, this doesn’t bother me at all. He was 3rd on our depth chart at corner last year, and that was the worst pass defense in the league. He constantly gets burned and celebrates like he just stopped the game winning TD pass when he actually does keep up with coverage. He’s all yours Redskins, looks like Raheem “radio” Morris gets his guy again. Briscoe last year and Biggars this year. He really wants to finish 4-12 again it looks like!

  21. tampamac says: Mar 20, 2013 2:02 PM

    From a Bucs fan, just hope he’s not the 1 or 2 corner.

  22. koolrepetoire says: Mar 20, 2013 2:12 PM

    E.J. Biggers spells Cedric Griffin won’t be re-signed. So since the haters love to post on Redskins stories, umm is Griffin beter than Biggers? Don’t be suprised to see Hall back as the starting LCB, still not signed yet.

  23. elscorcho5000 says: Mar 20, 2013 2:20 PM

    Eagles fans sure like to talk. Didnt last year’s “Dream Team” teach you anything?! You’re yearly off season champions, but you’ve yet to EVER win a real championship. And you wanna talk about Quarterbacks? I’ll take one with one leg over one with no brain and fumblitis of the hands any day!

  24. koolrepetoire says: Mar 20, 2013 2:38 PM

    I know the team that stll starts Ronde Barber isn’tvin here talking right? Oh, yeah and do the Pigeons(Eagles) have a starting CB right now?

  25. elscorcho5000 says: Mar 20, 2013 2:54 PM

    Im really entertained by people who say “they should have signed someone better”. Yeah, in a magical world without salary caps, cap penalties and other NFL teams, Im sure the Redskins would of signed someone better. Unfortunatly, this isn’t a video game, you cant get everyone you want. The Redskins are filling holes in the roster and building depth. Championship teams take time to build. And Championship organizations take that time. Ask the Eagles how buying everyone you can has been working for them.

    flavordave, the lack of lombardi trophies for the eagles certainly doesn’t make them winners. the eagle will always be the bridemaids of the nfc east… never able to get a ring of their own. their qb core is a joke. they better hope they find a qb,and fast.

    the Washed-up-ington Failed-skins

  28. michael713 says: Mar 20, 2013 3:18 PM

    As a Bucs fan, I am not sorry to see him go. I don’t think he has the talent level as a full time starter in the NFL. It looks like Raheem is bringing in all his old friends that got him fired in the 1st place. Must need a buddy to go to the strip clubs with. They didn’t give him 100% in Tampa and unless he has changed his ” I’m your best friend and your coach” attitude, they won’t deliver for him there either.

  29. modhairken says: Mar 20, 2013 4:03 PM

    Biggers was awful.

  30. skinsrollyou says: Mar 20, 2013 7:07 PM

    That dude up top says eagles are back in the business of winning. Hahahaha. How many superbowls Philly???

  31. flavordave says: Mar 20, 2013 9:55 PM

    Share with us all if you remember when ever the Redskins won a Super Bowl. Ask Jets and Dolphins fans, they also have to stop and think……

  32. cbreezy80 says: Mar 22, 2013 7:31 AM

    This dude is an effort player & sometimes in the NFL it takes alil more than effort it’s a thing called skills! This guy has no skills stank skins fans you’ll remember & know his for all the wrong things but he’ll show effort though! Raheem Morris believes he can turn any DB around but Biggers is one of the many reasons Raheem isn’t in Tampa anymore!!
