They released him a few weeks ago after an injury plagued season, but always said they wanted him back.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but both sides sounded happy that Atogwe will remain a member of the Rams.
“We are excited to have O.J. back in the fold,” Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said in a statement. “We were always hopeful for this result. We look forward to having his leadership, character and talent back on our defense.”
“It’s really important to stay here,” Atogwe said. “That was one of the things I was thinking about through this process is my purpose with the Rams. I have been here through a lot of the hard times and I believe that was to build the resolve within me, build the resolve within my teammates so when the promised land arrives, we’d be able to enjoy it and know how to be thankful for it.”
Atogwe leads the league in combined forced fumbles and interceptions since 2006 with 38.
