Atari Bigby says he injured ankle during conditioning test

Like Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, Packers safety Atari Bigby skipped the entire offseason program.  (Unlike Haynesworth, Bigby wasn’t under contract.)

Like Haynesworth, Bigby’s attempt to pass a conditioning test has resulted in an injury.  (Unlike Haynesworth, Bigby passed.)

Bigby claims that he reported for camp in shape and with no ankle problems.  The team, per Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, is attempting to determine the specific injury Bigby has suffered.

It wasn’t an issue, not what it is now,” Bigby said.  “But I worked out in
the offseason, I got in shape, I came back in shape so, no, it wasn’t
something that bothered me in the offseason.  So I think it’s one of
those, it just flared up. . . .  I guess twisted it a certain way that it
shouldn’t have been twisted.”

Bigby recently signed a one-year, $1.759 million tender offer.  He is hoping for a long-term contract.  But this definitely isn’t the way to get one.

    Bigby tries to get a muti-year deal, and suddenly signs a 1 year deal – original offer.
    Hard to believe he’s being honest.

    ” Come on down to the Packer Hall of Fame to spit shine its three Lombardi NFL Championship trophies.”
    ______________________
    Now I’ve seen everything!
    Toilet-townUSA just invited Pervy to spit on all three Lombardi trophies in Packer Hall of Fame. Hell, the invitee even threw in a racist slur:
    “Just don’t forget to bring your camera and your shine box…”
    Go Pervy, and do bring your camera!
    Why can’t I get an offer like that? I’d race to LAX tonight and fly there on the redeye to be ready bright and early for an opportunity like that.
    I’d never in a Million years even think of doing something that utterly low and disrespectful. Then, three weeks ago, The Packer Organization, brushed aside any standards of decency and flushed any credibility it had, down the toilet.
    After waiting ten years to let things quietly simmer down, the Packers chose to marginalize the rape of a 17 year old Green Bay Catholic school girl by inducting pedophile rapist Packer tight end Mark Chmura.
    The Packer Hall Of Fame demonstrated a complete lack of respect for the victim, it’s “hallowed” institution, the game of football and the players they enshrined. Why should anybody have respect for that farce? The Packer Hall Of Fame means absolutely nothing now. It is now nothing but a punch line (“if the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit”).
    “Don’t forget to bring your shine box” are you freakin’ kidding me????

  12. JimmySmith says: Aug 2, 2010 6:27 AM

    Another example on why teams should be cautious in their approach to client’s of Drew Rosenpussy. Whether Bigby is telling the truth about his ankle is anybody’s best guess because that same ankle has been a problem for two years now.
    They tried to hide it to get a long term contract and now all they have is a one year contract and a ticket out of town. But Bigby doesn’t have a lot to worry about, washed up players in Green Bay always are welcome in Minnesota.

  13. Old School says: Aug 2, 2010 7:59 AM

    Here’s something for Florio to work on. It seems to me that at one time I read that Bigby used the excuse he was staying away from OTA’s because of the ankle.
    In the end it doesn’t matter. His replacement has been drafted and is excelling as the new Packer safety.

  14. Ambrose says: Aug 2, 2010 9:20 AM

    I don’t buy his reasoning. These guys with lingering ailments don’t want the team to know it and hold out as long as they can, in the hope that it will just go away or heal itself. If his pouting had worked…and he got the money he felt he deserved, then the Packers would have been left hlding the bag if his ankle was shot. It’s all a game…back-and-forth.

    Packers are nothing when compared to the steelers or cowboys.

  19. Gravy Makes Sconnies Fat says: Aug 2, 2010 12:49 PM

    i wish i could be more hopeful about the packers prospects this season but yikes, losing 2 starters from last season’s defense which was obviously struggling anyway, giving up over 50 pts in the wildcard game, and now losing another starter and having to probly start a rookie safety??
    my advice is for the packers to go ahead and play the season just don’t expect much better than 8-8. the offense will be fun for you to watch though if garod doesn’t get killed by the o-line.

  20. Emoney says: Aug 2, 2010 1:52 PM

    Wow contra,
    If we’re nothing compared to the steelers or cowboys, what’s that make the vikings? You have absolutely nothing to show for. Your team has nothing. Hell, the freakin buccaneers have more titles than you. That’s pathetic.
    Gravy makes sconnies fat,
    Keep beating that same drum about our o-line killing rodgers or us finishing 8-8. It shows you know nothing about other teams. Once our tackles came back last year, we gave up fewer sacks than anyone in the league. You won’t have daryn colledge guarding Allen this year. And explain to me your prediction on the .500 record. We have a top offense, our defense is good. Yeah our special teams sucks but they equate for about 3% of the entire game. Tell me your theory. And I don’t wanna hear about how its because you think rodgers or thompson are gay. It’s an idiotic and childish comment.
    Again, why do you Viking fans troll a packer story as soon as its posted? I never see you guys on a bears or lions story. You live to read our stories. It’s okay though. I understand you like reading about a classy organization with a winning tradition. You’re like the little kid at Christmas who is jealous of their sibling because they always got the good toys while you always got the shaft. It eats you all up inside because we have a better history of winning than you. Stay bitter Viking fans. Us packer fans love it. A history if losers with nothing to show for.

    Emoney, the reason for my prediction is the packers defense based on the 2 vikes-packers games i saw and the cards packers game i saw, and also special teams.
    as far as posting on packers threads come on, packers fans ALWAYS post on vikings threads. plus and you may not believe this but it’s true, the main reason we comment on packers stories is because we’re trying to keep packer fans expectations under control so you don’t have to keep getting disappointed every year.
    we begged you the last 2 years not to get your hopes up about beating us or winning the division or winning a playoff game but you guys wouldn’t listen and then after the season you were all “why didn’t you warn us about what was gonna happen??!!” like it was our fault even though we tried to warn you.

    Oh, so you’re cherry-picking again. OK. Good to know. You could base your prediction on the fact that Green Bay lost in OT to a team that shellacked your queens… But that wouldn’t make the Packers sound like a bunch of hapless idiots. Wise choice. If you’re still here in January (doubtful), I’ll be here to remind you of your 8-8 prediction. At least you have company. Fagnar (RC IV to you) also thinks 8-8 is the ceiling for the 2010 Packers.

    Might want to check your calendar, dbag. I’m pretty sure the Packers have won a division title and a playoff game within the past three years.
    And I’m also pretty sure the O-line performed at a high level throughout the second half of last season when Tauscher and Clifton were playing. They allowed fewer sacks than everyone else over that stretch, so that’s good enough for me.
    And the only precious douche QB in the division plays to the west. Has he shown up at camp yet? No? But he’s under contract, right? What’s the holdup? Bruised vagina?
