ASHBURN, VA. (AP) - Free agent safety O.J. Atogwe has paid a visit to the Washington Redskins as he seeks a new team following his release by the St. Louis Rams.

Atogwe arrived Tuesday to meet with Redskins coaches, who are looking to upgrade the free safety position.

Atogwe was cut Friday after six seasons with the Rams. He has 22 career interceptions, along with 16 forced fumbles and five sacks.

Atogwe spent three years in St. Louis playing for Jim Haslett, who was defensive coordinator and later interim head coach. Haslett is now the Redskins‘ defensive coordinator.

Kareem Moore started 11 games at free safety for a Redskins defense that ranked 31st last season. He was inconsistent and finished the season on injured reserve with an ailing right knee.
