In addition to coming off reconstructive shoulder surgery, unsigned restricted free agent O.J. Atogwe is reportedly dealing with a sports hernia.

He's really banged up, which explains the lack of interest in Atogwe to this point. Still, it's likely to pick up shortly. Teams like the Dolphins, Cowboys, Bears, and Jaguars could all use a play-making free safety.

Rams GM Billy Devaney expressed frustration that O.J. Atogwe's name was floated in Wednesday's Donovan McNabb-to-St. Louis trade reports.
Devaney says the Rams are working to sign Atogwe long term, and didn't need rumors that could cause unhappiness on the player's side. Damage has already been done, with St. Louis low-balling Atogwe on his restricted free agent tender. The ballhawk is slated to earn just $1.226M at the moment.

O.J. Atogwe

Re: 2 people i like and wish we could get...

merriman only does 1 thing

he is a DE playing LB

he used steroids and got caught and his production has seriously declined since then

hes often injured and refused surgery on an injury that could end his career

would require a big contract but he doesnt do anything more than rush the passer

and has history of domestic abuse and violence off the field

hes a bad egg IMO

I want no part of Merriman, his production is nowhere near what it was before he got busted.

Re: 2 people i like and wish we could get...

I just have to ask, because the only "domestic" problems, I remember him having, was when a drunk Tila Tequila came to his house, and he restrained her, to keep her from driving. Is that the domestic problems you guys are referring too? Because if that's it, then I hardly think that should count. No charges were filed, because, well, she's a drunken ho-bag....

Yep...kinda like Sosa's long drives suddenly dying at the warning track.

Well, if we are going to say that about Merriman, couldn't the same thing be said about Will Smith? He took a banned substance, and as of right now, he's gotten away with it.

I don't walk through sports blindly, and I have no doubt that more than 50 percent of the NFL is taking steroids. The others just haven't been caught yet. If you don't like illegal drugs in your professional sports, maybe you should watch soccer, or lawn darts...... It's been there for years, and guaranteed, it ain't going no where anytime soon.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

That avatar is one of my favorite all-time...who is she?

She reminds me so much of a girl I went to JuCo with. I can't mention names, but I can tell you that she was once a Ms Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo queen, and the cousin of a former Penthouse Playmate of the Year...and her name, the playmate, was Lorna Doone. (not her real name, of course)
