The Redskins signed S O.J. Atogwe to a five-year deal on Thursday. The Rams cut Atogwe on Feb. 18.

Atogwe will join SS LaRon Landry in the Redskins' defensive backfield. Atogwe, a six-year veteran, spent his entire career with the Rams, hauling in 22 interceptions.

In 2010, Atogwe recorded 73 tackles, two sacks, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. The move comes just before the end of the league year when the current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires.

The way we see it

The Rams released Atogwe to save money, and the Redskins now have a very solid secondary with Atogwe, Landry and CB DeAngelo Hall. The Redskins were 31st in passing defense in 2010.
