  • Rams safety O.J. Atogwe has guts ..

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 2, 2009 5:21 PM ET
    Rams franchise player O.J. Atogwe is a player that likes to take risks; he's forced 33 turnovers since the start of 2006, the most in the NFL.

    Apparently, the Canadian born player's risk-taking extends beyond the field.

    ***** coach Mike Singletary told the Sacramento Bee Friday that the safety is dating Singletary's daughter. Atogwe heads to San Francisco this week to face the ***** and a potentially awkward conversation.

    Luckily for Atogwe, Singletary is cool with the arrangement.

    "He's a very nice guy," said Singletary. "He's a gentleman. He's been to my home several times and we've had conversations, not about football, but about life."

    We often talk about a player's bravery going over the middle or playing through pain, but dating the opposing coach's daughter when the coach is Mike Singletary is a true act of valor.

    Extra! Extra! Rams safety dating coach's daughter
    I always knew that Rams safety O.J. Atogwe was a good safety. But the lengths he'll go to learn about his opponents is positively heroic. Atogwe, as it turns out, is dating Singletary's second-oldest daughter, Jill. What's more amazing is that he's lived to tell about it ...

    "He's a very nice guy," said Singletary, who seemed perfectly fine with the relationship. "He's a gentleman. He's been to my home several times and we've had conversations, not about football, but about life."

    After going to high school at Valley Christian, Singletary said his daughter decided to attend art school in Chicago. That's where she met Atogwe, 28, who attended Kellogg Business school at Northwestern University as part of the NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program in March this year. Atogwe also played collegiately at Stanford. Jill Singletary now attends the San Francisco Academy of Art and plays volleyball for the school. Atogwe is one of the best safeties in the league. Since becoming a full-time starter in 2006, his 33 turnovers is tops in the NFL. The Rams made him their franchise player in the offseason.

    Entangling alliances aren't new to the Rams-***** rivalry. Alex Smith's uncle, John L. Smith, was a scout for the Rams when Scott Linehan was their coach.

    Who's Alex Smith? Anyone know??

    I doubt it .. If you were dating Singletary's daughter, don't you think that playing for Mike might be a little too close to home?

      He's the Niner's backup QB. First overall pick in the '05 draft, taken over Aaron Rodgers.

          It would extremely funny if O.J DOES sign with the Whiners next year, for a 7 year deal, and then he pisses Singletary's daughter off and they break up with each other.


          Can you say AWKWARD?!

            They canít sign him now that window has gone they would have to wait until the seasons ends now is the way I understand it.

              Especially considering his sobriquet of "Samurai Mike". Not the kind of guy I'd feel safe hanging around if I was dating his daughter.

                    OJ will go to whoever the highest bidder is, and while that could be the Whiners, that's no guarantee. OJ also loves being a Ram, so as long as we don't lowball him, he'll stay a Ram.
                    I believe!:ram:
