Things aren’t looking good for Bigby. He now needs surgery Friday to “clean up” his ankle – the same one that has been bothering him for a while now. It’s looking more and more like Morgan Burnett will start next to Nick Collins this year and frankly, from what I’ve heard so far about Burnett, that’s fine with me. I still don’t think Bigby is a bad player by any means but for some reason I just don’t think there will be much of a drop-off (if any) with Burnett in there vs Bigby. Only real issue now may be depth at safety, I’m not too pumped about our other choices there. (Though I have to say, I hold out some hope that Derrick Martin can grow comfortable enough with the defense that he could some day wreak the havoc on defense that he does on special teams.)
Bigby toast for 2010?
