Today it was announced that the Indianapolis Colts released Bob Sanders and the St. Louis Rams O.J. Atogwe. Atogwe was a free safety with the Rams and Bob Sanders was a safety with the Colts. Sanders was the 2007 Defensive Player of the year but has only played in a grand total of 9 games in the last 3 season. Atogwe has had over 70 tackles and 2 interceptions a year for the last 5 season.
Earlier in the winter it was announced that Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was going to test the free agent market and is highly considered one of the best free agents that will be on the market this season. Asougha had an injury plagued season last season, but when healthy he has become one of the most feared cornerbacks in the league.
Another question is if the Cowboys don’t go after one of these guys or someone else, do they just go out and draft a cornerback, safety or free safety to help out what was a average at best secondary last season? So the question I ask you is do the Cowboys open up their wallets and pay a big name free agent or do they use the draft to fill those secondary holes?
