Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Rams are "strongly considering" offering safety Oshiomogho Atogwe only $1.226 million, in order to secure a right to match any other offer he receives.
The Rams in this regard are getting it right. And Thomas thinks that Atogwe could end up being upset.
But he shouldn't be. He'll be able to cut his best deal on the open market, and the only thing his prospective new team could be losing is the time and effort spent negotiating the deal, if the Rams match it.
This guy creates turnovers and is a nice upgrade to Gibril Wilson. He will want a big contract, but we're already paying Gibril a pretty penny, so why not make the change? Thoughts?
