I am not suggesting that Atogwe is not a great football player. I am also not suggesting that the Lions secondary is a complete, high-level unit. I’m not even saying the Lions shouldn’t have taken a run at him (they did).
What I am saying is that the Lions have as much chance of signing Atogwe now as they did on his first day of free-agency. None.
