Nnamdi Asomugha (All in one)

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; As crazy as it sounds, I'm hearing we have SLIGHTLY more cap space than the niners at this point, so we could afford to pay him slightly more than them. Can anybody verify this?...

Shoe, we also need a Left Tackle, Backup Quarterback, 3-4 Defensive End.

With that said you can still lure him in with a big signing bonus but low base salary so you won't take too much off the cap.

Yeah you right.

Lol But can't i just enjoy the thought for a little while?

I'm hoping we can land an older QB FA on the relative-cheap, and with some luck land either an OT or DE/OLB instant-impact player in the draft, so our major FA signings can have some more $$ behind them. After all, money talks and...well you know what walks.

In the end I am a realist about the "stars aligning" nature of my FA/draft hopes. But it sure would be nice for PayLoo to not hit a homer, but a bases clearing Grand Slam.

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha

we dont need a major FA signing like Nnamdi...

we have the cap room to get a few decent players that fit the 34... Now if we get rid of or restructure Harper that changes things a bit. Restructuring Harper gives us the ability to make a big splash in the FA market.

I think if we make these corners stick not only Harper is gone, but Greer also.......

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha

Simply cutting Roman Harper would allow us enough cap space to nab Nnamdi, grab a decent 3-4 end, add a reasonable backup QB, and select an adequate left tackle in the draft.

Am I wrong?
