Former Redskin E.J. Biggers Signs With Eagles

After two seasons with the Washington Redskins in which he recorded 50 tackles and an interception, E.J. Biggers has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. 

The Eagles on Tuesday afternoon announced that they have signed former Redskins cornerback E.J. Biggers to a contract.

The Washington Redskins announced Friday, March 13, 2015, the signing of free agent cornerback Chris Culliver. Here's a gallery of photos from his career.

Biggers spent the past two seasons with the Redskins after spending his first four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team that drafted him out of Western Michigan.

During his two seasons in Washington, Biggers served mostly as a situational player, appearing in 31 of 32 regular-season games in that span.

But when the team signed cornerback Chris Culliver this offseason, and with the eventual return of DeAngelo Hall to the field after being lost for the season in Week 3 last year, the Redskins decided to go in a different direction with their cornerback situation.

As it stands now, the Redskins currently have nine cornerbacks on the roster, with David Amerson and Bashaud Breeland joining Hall and Culliver as the expected top players at the position.

Last month at the NFL Annual Meetings in Phoenix, head coach Jay Gruden told the media that he's really looking forward to seeing Culliver in a Redskins uniform.

"Chris Culliver was one of the better corners we had graded and (was) a major target for us," he said. "I like his toughness, I think he's a great tackler, great competitor, obviously — you could see that on tape — and I think he has the ability to travel with the better receivers. You're going to see it — Dez Bryant, the Odell Beckhams in our division that'll give him an opportunity to do that."
