Atogwe needs to stay

As I sit here, still crushed by the loss of Isaac Bruce (I may cry when I first see him in a 49ers uni) I can't help but think there is one guy who the Rams might lose that could be worse.

Free safety O.J. Atogwe is a restricted free-agent and there are a lot of teams interested. Atogwe was the best player the Rams had on defense last year, he even led the NFC in interceptions.

It would be the ultimate display of stupidity to let him go, but i wouldn't be surprised if they did it. The worst part is, they have the money. They let Bruce go and they just restructured Little's contract in order to pay him less, it makes sense to offer a big deal to O.J. and wrap him up for years to come but, of course, Shaw is no expert when it comes to making sense.

The fact is, the worst mistake the Rams could make this offseason would be to let Atogwe go, that and drafting Chris Long.
