Update: Former Redskins CB E.J. Biggers Signs 1 Year Deal with Eagles

New, comments

Good luck on that big contract E.J.!

Cornerback E.J. Biggers spent the last two seasons with the the Washington Redskins after starting his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Biggers was brought in to play under his former Bucs Head Coach Raheem Morris, who was the Redskins defensive backs coach.  Morris used Biggers as his utility man, lined him up at safety and cornerback when he had a spot to fill, which was more often than anyone would have liked.  The Redskins continued issues with finding, developing, and keeping talent in the secondary gave Biggers a place on the team because he could stay healthy.  Last year he was re-signed to a 1 year, vet-minimum contract.  He started two games last season, and five the previous year. During his two seasons in Washington, Biggers had 67 tackles, one interception, and 6 passes defended.

The Eagles are looking to replace Bradley Fletcher, who was affectionately nicknamed Burnt Toast but the Philadelphia fans.  Fletcher was signed by the Patriots last month, and hopes to follow the path of another former member of the Eagles secondary, safety Patrick Chung, who was a disappointment in Philly, but had success with the Patriots. E.J. Biggers could be the guy to offer the Eagles a smooth transition from Burnt Toast.  Good luck today E.J.!
