Breaking: Seahawks add Ex-Packer Atari Bigby

Published on August 16, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

The Seahawks have added depth and experience to their secondary by signing former Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby.

To clear a spot on the 90-man roster, former University of Washington fullback Dorson Boyce was released.

Bigby (5-11, 213) played for the Packers the past six seasons, starting 16 games in 2007 and 11 in 2009 – collecting nine of his 10 career interceptions in those two seasons. Two of his interceptions came in a 2009 games against the Seahawks, and he also had seven tackles against them in a 2007 playoff game.

He was born in Jamaica and played at Central Florida before being signed by the Miami Dolphins in 2005. After the Dolphins released him, Bigby signed with the Jets, who also released him. He then signed with the Packers.

Bigby joins a young secondary, where second-year players Earl Thomas (free safety) and Kam Chancellor (strong safety) are the starters; rookie Mark LeGree and second-year man Josh Pinkard have been the safeties with the No. 2 unit; and rookie free agents Jeron Johnson and Rickey Thenarse have comprised the third tandem.

Bigby was limited to four games with the Packers last year, when he began the season on the physically unable to perform list after having ankle surgery.
