E. J. Biggers Signs With RedskinsMarch 20th, 2013
The razor-thin depth of the Bucs’ secondary got even thinner today when nickelback E.J. Biggers signed with the Washington Redskins, so reports Mike Jones of the Washington Post.
Badly in need of help in their secondary following the release of veteran DeAngelo Hall, and with last year’s third corner, Cedric Griffin, a free agent, the Redskins turned to Biggers, a four-year veteran, who played under current secondary coach Raheem Morris when Morris was head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 6-foot, 185-pound Biggers played at Western Michigan before he was drafted in the seventh round by Tampa Bay in 2009. Biggers has appeared in 45 games, starting 24. He has recorded 168 tackles and three interceptions.
Last season Biggers started a career-high 12 games, recording 51 tackles, an interception and seven pass deflections.
Joe will suggest the Bucs need secondary help worse than the Redskins. The way things are going, still looking at Eric Wright and Danny Gorrer as starting cornerbacks if the season was to start today, Joe has a hunch cornerbacks coach Tony Oden either needs to find a trusty bartender or a therapist.
