Report: Atogwe to skip offseason programs

The St. Louis Rams begin their offseason conditioning program on Monday, and it looks like they’ll be without one of their best players.

Safety Oshiomogho Atogwe does not plan on showing up and quite possibly could stay away from the organization throughout the summer, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The 28-year-old was tendered by the Rams at the lowest possible level (right of first refusal) this offseason, landing him a salary of $1.226 million and sparking speculation that the team may be looking to deal the veteran safety who has spent his entire five-year career in St. Louis.

The $1.226 million is a far cry from the $6.34 million payday Atogwe brought in last season as the team’s franchise player.

The former Stanford Cardinal has intercepted 15 passes over the past three years while starting 60 of 64 games for the Rams over the past four seasons.

You think the Chicago Bears may have some interest in Atogwe? They talked with free agent Antrel Rolle before he signed with the New York Giants and have been rumored to be looking to upgrade the position.
