The Redskins have signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneer E.J. Biggers to help Jim Haslett’s secondary.

The Redskins have agreed to terms with cornerback E.J. Biggers, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

Badly in need of help in their secondary following the release of veteran DeAngelo Hall, and with last year’s third corner, Cedric Griffin, a free agent, the Redskins turned to Biggers, a four-year veteran, who played under current secondary coach Raheem Morris when Morris was head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 6-foot, 185-pound Biggers played at Western Michigan before he was drafted in the seventh round by Tampa Bay in 2009. Biggers has appeared in 45 games, starting 24. He has recorded 168 tackles and three interceptions.

Last season Biggers started a career-high 12 games, recording 51 tackles, an interception and seven pass deflections.
