This little nugget is found in Bedard's write up of Daryn Colledge signing his tender:
Of the three remaining restricted free agents, only Bigby appears to be a threat to push the June 15 deadline. Two sources said he had designs on staying away to get a contract extension, perhaps even into training camp after signing his tender.
But that was before the draft. With the Packers trading up in the third round to pick safety Morgan Burnett of Georgia Tech, the thinking of Bigby and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, might well have changed. Burnett is expected to challenge Bigby for the starting spot opposite Nick Collins regardless of when Bigby reports.
The guy can't stay healthy and is marginal player at best when he IS on the field. Of COURSE he wants a contract extension. I'm sorry, I know it's just business, especially when you're dealing with Rosenhaus, but the fan part in me just bristles when I read this crap.
