EJ Biggers

EJ Biggers has been with the Redskins for 2 seasons and played both CB and S. Biggers seemed to be a favorite of former DB coach, Raheem Morris, and it is doubtful that he will return to the team in 2015. Biggers has struggled mightily in his time in Washington.

Biggers began the season as the 4th CB. He scored a 0.83 rating versus the Texans in week 1. Against the Jaguars, the next week, he had a good game with a 0.95 rating and a 1.50 rating on the blitz.

Biggers helped the Redskins to the big win in Dallas in week 8 with a 0.96 rating. He gave up 2 TDs  to Odell Beckham Jr. in week 15 versus the Giants. I gave him a 0.76 rating in that game.

Biggers play was even worse the next week versus the Eagles. He finished with a 0.54 rating and gave up a TD. He finished out the season with a 0.59 rating in the final week versus Dallas.

Although his coverage is technically sound, Biggers fails to make a competent play on the ball when he is in position to do so. A good example of this is his very poor 6 passes defensed in 2 seasons with the Redskins. He may follow Morris to Atlanta.
