Twelve hours ago, the four teams reported to be most interested in free agent safety O.J. Atogwe were the Cowboys, 49ers, Vikings and Dolphins.
Now that list can be cut in half.
Atogwe went from restricted free agent to unrestricted free agent today because the Rams, as expected, declined to increase his one-year tender offer to 110 percent of his 2009 salary.
That doesn’t mean the Rams won’t re-sign him, however. The Rams still want Atogwe back, and with the Cowboys and Vikings out of the running, there isn’t a lot of competition for his services.
