Seahawks show interest in Oshiomogho Atogwe?

Published on June 16, 2010 by     

The fit in with the Seattle Seahawks would seem questionable because the Seahawks have already invested heavily in rookie safety Earl Thomas, the 14th player chosen in the NFL draft. Atogwe, like Thomas, projects as a coverage safety. It’s tough to envision the Seahawks investing significantly in two players at the same position.

Safeties can be somewhat interchangeable depending on scheme and Thomas has the ability to play cornerback if needed, but that hasn’t been the plan so far this offseason.

Rams safety Oshiomogho Atogwe, one of the top available free agents, plans to visit Seattle Seahawks next week, according to a league source.

A team source, however, said the Seattle Seahawks might not be interested in Atogwe.

The one team that has made the hardest push to sign Atogwe is St. Louis, which would like to keep him. Atogwe was the Rams’ franchise player last season.

Atogwe has made no free-agent visits since becoming a free agent more than two weeks ago. A shoulder injury landed him on injured reserve in 2009. He also underwent hernia surgery.

Despite playing a shortened season, Atogwe had 74 tackles, three forced fumbles, two interceptions and a sack in 12 games. Atogwe, who will turn 29 years old this month, has 19 interceptions in his five-year NFL career.
