Default Atogwe got the Franchise Tag

Contract talks result in franchise tag for Rams’ Atogwe

Yet another franchise tag was handed down Wednesday night.

After contract talks failed to produce a deal, the St. Louis Rams designated safety Oshiomogho Atogwe as their franchise player. The safety franchise number for Atogwe is $6.342 million.

It makes sense for St. Louis and its new head coach, Steve Spagnuolo, because Atogwe would have been the top free-agent safety, and the draft is considered thin at that position.

The Rams had hoped to strike a long-term deal with Atogwe, but when they couldn’t, the franchise tag became a viable option. The two sides can continue working to a long-term deal, but Atogwe is going nowhere now.
That sucks he was #1 on my list of free agents.

Apparently the Browns won't put the tag on Sean Jones, so he will probably hit the market.

DEN has to go after Sean Jones now. F-n lambs....
This sucks. James Sanders is alsso an option.
Sean Jones is more than a solid FS and Barrett with a drafted strong safety should be good. Gotta get Jones though. Jones can play either FS or SS. Maybe even get Jones AND! Sanders! I dont think they will break the bank, but then DEN wont have to worry about the position in the top end of the draft, and they can concentrate on other positions

Just remember that there are quite a few teams looking for safties in FA, including the Chargers, so we'll be far from the only shopper in the store.

Bell will be tagged or extended before he hits UFA.

It'll be down to

Sanders FS
Phillips SS
Jones SS
Dawkins FS
Sharper SS
Bullocks FS
Sensabaugh SS and his AK47's
Renaldo Hill FS
Eugene Wilson FS
Jim Leonhard SS

There could be a couple more cuts, maybe the Huff rumor is true.

Hoping for Mays means hoping the Broncos suck balls next year. I'd rather not have a top 10 pick.

Have to agree. I thought there was no way Otogwe got to FA once Spanuolo was hired. Plus, guy has issues in run support and is overrated based on his games from Last year. Made SC alot I guess, but blew his assignments or got run over more than I would like a S to do.

I signed Jones and Sanders in Madden and they both made the Pro Bowl.

Yeah, he's certainly a ball hawk, but an undisciplined one who is willing to hang team mates out to dry in order to try to get his. Run support and OJ Atogwe don't belong in the same sentence. He'll get his picks, but there will be just as many plays that look like the CB got worked but it was really Atogwe leaving his assignment.
