    Could think of far worse players we could sign!

    Re: Rams Cut OJ Atogwe

    I'd take Atogwe or Sanders.

    Either of those 2 opposite Chung (on that note, I prefer Atogwe) would drastically improve the Secondary.

    I don't see it happening though.

    Patricia will be given a year to work on Meriweather as a starter.

    Re: Rams Cut OJ Atogwe

    If we did go after either S, I think it would be Sanders seeing as how BB has seen his play first hand over the course of six or so years whereas Atogwe he's only faced once (2008). Plus, Sanders brings a mean SOB mentality that we could really use. And given our depth at S, we could rotate him enough to keep him fresh and off IR. Think about....Sanders and Sanders....:rocker:

    Bob Sanders can't stay healthy. The guy has missed 40 of 48 games over the last 3 year.

    Atogwe would be a better option, in my honest opinion. Especially since he's only missed 8 games his entire career.

    WOW. This is a VERY unexpected surprise! I have a very good friend that is a Rams fan and eventually I got a good serving of Atogwe, he would be a GREAT pickup, he is one of the NFL's most underrated players, probably top 5. He has played on a rebuilding Rams team for years, I think he would definitely take a pay cut to play for a winning team.

    He would be a better pickup than Sanders.

    Talk about two big name free agent safeties. Atogwe is really good too AND not made of glass though. :D If the pats got him though what to do with Meriweather...

    Oh sweet baby Jesus, please, PLEASE make this happen! Sign Atogwe and ship the Bang Clock out while his stock is high.

    I like the safeties we have now, unless OJ is going to be cheap. Would rather spend the cash on a corner or d-linemen.

    Those of you who complain about bad angles from Meriweather, Sanders and Co. would become suicidal watching Atogwe for a full season.

    brandon meriweather i think will make something like 2 million this year Oshiomogho Atogwe is going to get at lest 6 million on the open market IMO he's not worth 4 million more then meriweather and he will be 30 when the season starts meriweather just turned 27

    Yes he is worth 4m more than Meriweather. One finds the ball, the other finds his teammate. If we get Atogwe, we will be a top 5 defense for sure.

    Warren - Wilfork - Warren

    Cunningham - Mayo - Spikes - Rookie

    McCourty - Atogwe - Chung - Bodden

    Holy crap.

    I would like to see Merriweather replaced sooner rather than later, cant stand him at all. Dumb as a sack of marbles and his angles are just pathetic for an NFL FS. Let me just launch my whole upper body at this guy! That will work out well!

    He signed a 5 year 32 million dollar deal before last season.

    The same thing that he was used for this year, he may have played a high % of the snaps but he was still rotated ALOT!

    There would be no need to ship him away, McGowan is a FA, Lockett could be placed back onto the PS, people seem to forget that Safety is something that we are going to need these next couple of years. This would be one of the best BB FA pick-ups that we have seen in a while.

    lol I watch Atogwe, quite frequently actually, I don't know if you are just talking out of your ass, have something against Atogwe or what, but he is a great safety. If you watched him as much as you watch Meriweather then you might, just MIGHT have a valid argument but I highly doubt you do.
    He is a very underrated player.

    I could counter every one of those quotes with positive views on him, but that would get us nowhere. I'm sure MANY of those posts came from fans that are angry that he was released, for the LONGEST time, all I heard about Atogwe was that he was a top 5 FS, now he is released and people's opinions change, its really not surprising.

    If you watch the film, you will see that QB's don't throw at him. Bad QB's throw at him and it doesn't work, all I can say is watch the film. You will not be disappointed.

    Go back and read my posts. Nowhere did I call him a bad player. I made a comment about angles, because of what a lot of people here have said about Sanders and Meriweather. You jumped up on your horse for nothing.
