Redskins owner

This guy should be labeled a traitor:

†With the owners only signing their own players, while the CBA is going on this owner is not sitting still.

The Cowboys had two cracks at O.J. Atogwe in the past year -- first as a restricted free agent and just recently as an unrestricted guy, released by the Rams. There was never any substantial interest.

Now the veteran safety is a Washington Redskin, signing a five-year deal just before the original Thursday night deadline for the collective bargaining agreement talks.

Released by the Rams before he was due an $8 million roster bonus, Atogwe visited Washington recently and should provide an immediate upgrade at safety. With Alan Ball and Gerald Sensabaugh eventually heading toward free agency, the Cowboys need one, too.

I really thought once the CBA was over Cowboys wanted this guy....Oh Well

"What we don't know is where we'll be with the cap, if we have a cap," Jones said.  

It could be months, unfortunately, before the league sets a new salary cap level. What if it's millions below what teams budgeted for?  

Jones makes an understandable point, given that the Cowboys had the highest payroll in the league last year and must, probably above all else, re-sign their best young offensive lineman, Doug Free, to a long-term deal.  

Top tackles don't come cheap. Consider that a free-agent acquisition of sorts, just like Miles Austin's last year and DeMarcus Ware's in 2009.  

Make no mistake, some free-agent movement will be necessary, too. The Cowboys have more needs than a seven-round draft can fill. Who's playing safety? Left guard? Defensive end? How about offensive tackle depth?  

That's a full shopping cart. But it has become clear Jones wants to know his exact budget before fully filling out his list. Most teams seem to be taking the same approach; besides Atogwe, modest one-year deals for Jeremy Shockey (Panthers), Shaun Rogers (Saints) and Bob Sanders (Chargers) are about all we've seen.

I for sure don't know the ins and outs, but the Redskins owner has never worried about the cap. He gave this guy 26 Mil over a 5 year deal, haven't seen the number that shows what he is guaranteed.

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Redskins have agreed to terms with safety O.J. Atogwe, formerly of the Rams, on a five-year contract.

ESPNís Adam Schefter has confirmed the deal, and reports that itís worth $26 million.


Well, so much for Atogwe not wanting to sign with a team before there is a new CBA in place, like he said a week ago. Going to hate playing against him for the next couple of years. This was a 5 year deal.
