Miami Dolphins: Louis Oliver weighs in on the safety search

Louis Oliver admittedly doesn’t pay as close of attention to the NFL as a whole as he did during his highly productive playing days.
Still, it was somewhat jarring to hear the former Miami Dolphins free safety express uncertainty when I recently asked him about his current Rams counterpart, O.J. Atogwe, who became an unrestricted free agent at midnight.
“Who?” Oliver said. “Never heard of him.”
“They’ve been missing somebody,” Oliver said. “I thought they should have kept Renaldo [Hill, the starter from 2006-08]. Instead, they brought in the guy last year [Gibril Wilson], and he never touched the ball. I didn’t understand that.”
“When you play safety, you’re so interchangeable anyway,” Oliver said. “You’ve got to be able to play both spots.”
