Bigby is Back With The Pack

Atari Bigby signed his tender to stay with the Packers, so he will officially be part of the team for the 2010 season. The only question now is how much he will actually play. With third round pick Morgan Burnett looking good in rookie camp, Bigby isn't a lock to regain his starting spot. Either way it will be nice to have a guy that can fill in if someone gets hurt or just to give the other guy a break. I personally have never been one to really get into the training camp thing (Winks edit: I have! I have! Look at me!), but this year it should be fun to watch these two battle it out. In the long run looking at this as a fan it should make both of these guys better having them battle for a starting spot.

I have always been a fan of Bigby, because of the way he seems to be around the ball at all times. He also is a big hitter, and it's nice to have a guy that can put fear in the other teams eyes. Burnett seems to be a little more different as a ball hawk with his interceptions. Training camp starts Saturday, July 31th at 2:00 p.m. so I guess we will get a better feeling for who will play where, and who will not be playing for the Packers next season.

The only person Green Bay doesn't have under contract right now is Bryan Bulaga, our first round draft pick. Sounds like he will be signed by training camp, and they were waiting on some teams to sign players picked close to Bulaga. Doesn't seem like the Packers have issues with signing rookies before training camp, which is always a good thing. So if you get a chance to check out training camp keep an eye on the safety battle, and also to see how the rest of the rookies progress.
