Bucs' E.J. Biggers, Packers' Greg Jennings to be reunited



Bucs cornerback E.J. Biggers will likely have a face-to-face meeting with an old friend on Sunday.

It was Packers receiver Greg Jennings who hosted Biggers' campus visit to Western Michigan during his senior year in high school. The pair hit it off and remain friends today.

"That was the reason I went there, because of Greg," Biggers said. "He told me that if I wanted to play right away, that was the spot for me. They needed (defensive backs) right then, especially corners. He told me I was their No. 1 recruit. Just from chilling with him and watching his highlights was crazy. I didn’t know about him until I got there. When I did get there, we were really close."

Regarding their practice matchups, Biggers said,"Well, I always thought I was winning -- until he caught the ball. He’s so smooth. You’ll think you’re getting an interception but he’ll break the pass up or make the catch some kind of way. Just watching him my whole freshman year, I can say I’d never seen anything like that.

"I talk to him to this day. He always tells me how proud he is of me. Hearing it from a guy like that, an All Pro is great, man."
