That's all he is. Rah may be able to work him into the system.

Relax fellas, this guy is depth, and I'm sure we will find a more talented CB to start, either another FA or the draft. This is actually an excellent depth move. No way this guy is opposite Wilson. He is a nickle cb, nothing more, nothing less.

Crawford might even push him out of the nickle job, so he is depth.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

The Bucs never went into a season with Biggers slated to start, but the bottom line is that at age 26, he best profiles as a no. 2 CB in the NFL. If he starts for us, he's going to get thrown at a lot, which would in effect make him the direct DeAngelo Hall replacement. He was usually targeted 60-80 times per year in TB, but Hall got targeted 100+ times per season.

Why would it be stupid to have both? The one with upside starts and the other, who you claim is similar but not quite as good, would simply be depth in case of an injury. Most backups in the league possess a similar skill set as their starter, but are without the "upside" or they themselves would start, right? If we can afford both (a funny thing to say given our cap situation) why not have them both?

Somewhere Reed doughty sitting by himself thanking god that the skins signed another piece of the secondary the fans will hate more than him. If hall comes back we can probably get to under 5 percent of the gameday thread posts being about Reed.

Remember back when we thought Doughty was the worst thing ever? He must be thanking his lucky stars, he's flying under the radar now.

Yep, haters gotta hate. Never understood it myself.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

I think the plan is to have RGIII play both ways - depending on how his knee feels this fall. So we should be good.

I wouldn't mind seeing him go all Darrel green on us and return punts in the Super Bowl. Well yeah I would because he would get killed but that was always a huge moment when 28 was lines up to return a kick.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

biggers is insurance for the draft in case we miss on a db, or a 1st round RT falls or whatever. we're covering our bases.

I believe we'll be drafting 3 dbs (2 cbs, 1 s) and hoping one of them can start for us. if we get lucky, great. otherwise, it'll be kind of like last year (though a healthy DL would really improve things).

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

Amazing to think Biggers cant get better, when he showed SIGNIFICANT flashes last year. Where is the risk in this move? Affordable, young corner who didnt play poor last year. Id say thats a win.
