To make room for the former Washington Redskin, the Eagles cut rookie long snapper Matt Camilli.
Atogwe managed only 13 games, including eight starts, with the Redskins last season, amassing 60 tackles, three interceptions and 0.5 sacks. During his seven-year career, which began with six seasons on the St. Louis Rams, the 30-year old has registered 450 tackles, 25 interceptions and 5.5 sacks.
Atogwe is expected to immediately compete for playing time with the crowded, but not elite, crop of Eagles safeties. The other Philadelphia safeties vying for playing time include Nate Allen, Kurt Coleman and Jaiquawn Jarrett.
