Like the Bears, the Dallas Cowboys are looking for help at the safety position, and two names familiar to Chicago fans are also surfacing in Big D: O.J. Atogwe and Darren Sharper.

The Dallas Morning News reports Atogwe is on the Cowboys' radar, although no official visits of any sort have been scheduled. A restricted free agent who was given the low tender (right of first refusal), the St. Louis Ramswould have an opportunity to match any offer extended to their star safety. Conventional wisdom suggests St. Louis is simply waiting for a team to try and sign Atogwe, that way the Rams could match it without setting the market for the five-year veteran.

Meantime, Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com believes the Cowboys should make a run at Darren Sharper -- who recently underwent minor offseason knee surgery. Sharper could be a nice fit in Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense, but as we've stated before, he shouldn't be an option to play in the Cover 2 in Chicago.
