Description: Great news for the Seahawks as they have come to terms with free-agent S Atari Bigby.
Insight: If he can stay healthy he can really be a welcomed addition to the Seattle roster. He used to be considered one of the better IDP safeties in the league, but he just can't seem to stay healthy these days. The good news is... he's still quite young.

Description: Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, via Twitter, that the recovery timetable for Bigby's recovery from ankle surgery has been pushed to 4-8 weeks.

Description: Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby will have surgery on his troublesome left ankle on Friday and hopes to heal within a month. SOURCE: YAHOO! SPORTS - NFL - GREEN BAY PACKERS NEWS
Insight: It's now time to climb aboard the Morgan Burnett bandwagon. He's been getting all of the 1st team reps with Bigby sidelined and this only will solidify his position as starter. He could be one of the top rookie defensive backs in 2010 and definitely a huge IDP sleeper.

Description: Pro Football Talk.com reports Bigby (left ankle) will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle on Friday.
Insight: This should open the door for rookie Morgan Burnett to win the starting strong safety job for the Packers. Bigby should be fine for Week 1, but could easily be a backup. (Rapid Draft.com)

Description: Bigby has not been overly impressive during the preseason after undergoing ankle surgery in May.

Insight:
 
11/2/2008 11:48:00 AM
Description: As expected, S Atari Bigby, CB Charles Woodson and CB Al Harris are all active today for the Packers. Bigby returns for the first time since straining a hamstring in Week 2 and is a solid IDP option. Harris shouldn't be on IDP rosters, and Woodson doesn't make for a strong starter against the run-heavy Titans. (SportsBuff.com)
