The Seattle Seahawks have signed safety Atari Bigby. Bigby is unlikely to compete for a starting job, but should provide some veteran depth to the Seahawks, who waived fullback Dorson Boyce to make room on their roster. Kam Chancellor is the current starter at strong safety, but this will be just his second full season and his first as a starter. Last year, he only played enough to register 23 tackles.
Bigby played just four games for the Green Bay Packers in 2010 after suffering an ankle injury during training camp. But he was a regular starter when healthy from 2007-09, making 10 interceptions and registering 156 tackles in that time.
Bigby's best season came in 2007 when he picked of five passes and combined on 86 tackles. In the playoffs that year, Bigby had a standout game against the the Seahawks. In that game, he registered seven tackles, forced a fumble and defended a pass.
