The SportsXchange

The Washington Redskins re-signed unrestricted free agent cornerback E.J. Biggers. Financial terms of the one-year deal were not disclosed.

Biggers, 26, appeared in all 16 games for the Redskins last season, including five starts. The former Western Michigan star was a versatile defensive back during his first season in Washington, lining up inside and outside at cornerback and even seeing time at free safety. Biggers finished the season with 35 tackles and one interception.

Originally a seventh-round pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009, Biggers has started 29 of 61 career regular-season games, posting 186 tackles, 30 passes defensed, four interceptions, two forced fumblees and one sack.

The 6-foot, 185-pound Biggers will compete for playing time behind projected starters DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson, with free agent addition Tracy Porter expected to play the nickel role.

The Redskins also have Richard Crawford working his way back from knee surgery that sidelined him all of last season.

"Whatever they need, I'll be ready," Biggers said, per the Washington Post.
