Another Lauded Player LostMarch 20th, 2013
Nobody will confuse Roy Miller with a Pro Bowl defensive tackle, but he was strongly lauded by the New Schiano Order and, per reports, offered a contract to return to the Bucs. Yet Miller is now a Jaguar.
And E. J. Biggers, now a Redskins cornerback, is in similar territory. Biggers was praised by rockstar general manager Mark Dominik and Greg Schiano late last season.
In January, Dominik lauded Biggers, Danny Gorrer and Leonard Johnson for their work against Roddy White and Julio Jones in the Bucs’ shocking win against the Falcons to close the season. Biggers started that game and had four tackles.
“Again, they got valuable experience,” Dominik said, saying ”tons of experience” was attained, albeit under less than ideal circumstances. … … “Just experience and time back in here with the system with an offseason again is going to be really important for this football team,” Dominik said. “That’s what you’ll see. You’ll see a lot of [positive] changes going forward.”
Of course, like Miller, Biggers will never be considered a great football player. But he was a serviceable corner on a team aching for cornerback depth.
Like Miller, the loss of Biggers can’t be judged until the Bucs hammer out their final roster, but it is somewhat surprising.
