A source tells the Washington Post that E.J. Biggers, Richard Crawford and Chase Minnifield will compete for the starting left corner job.

Josh Wilson is locked in on the right side. We'd consider Biggers the heavy favorite to win this battle as Crawford is undersized and struggled as a rookie. Minnifield may never be able to get over his litany of knee woes. Regardless, Crawford is an excellent bet to stick on the roster thanks to his contributions in the return game. He averaged a whopping 19.5 yards on eight punt returns last year.
