Safety Oshiomogho Atogwe had an opportunity to remain on the Philadelphia Eagles' roster. His body just wouldn't allow it.
It's been a swift fall from grace for Atogwe, a former St. Louis Rams standout who signed a five-year, $26 million deal with the Washington Redskins in March 2011. Injuries limited his effectiveness, and he was dumped by Mike Shanahan after one season. Atogwe signed a one-year deal with the Eagles in June.
Hanson had been taking most of the first-team reps over Boykin, according to CSNPhilly.com. Reid said the rookie had bridged the gap in recent weeks.
Hanson was released on the final day of cuts last summer as well, but he quickly returned on a team-friendly deal. That's not expected to be the case this time around.
