Asomugha?

Who wouldn't want to add him to their roster, you'd have to crazy not to want him!


I don't think it's a matter of if a team - i.e. the Saints - wants him or not, but rather if they can negotiate a contract with such a player that'll tilt the odds in favor of the team coming on top in the investment vs return equation.

Get past the brand name, watch the tape.

"All Kelly could say about Asomugha was, I dont have his group of plays, or how he played in Game 1 through the last game of the season, then after more questions, I think Nnamdi has the skill set (pause) that can play football.
We all know that the former Oakland Raiders cornerback played horribly in 2012. He can no longer run with the faster receivers in the league, his quickness and change of direction are subpar and he seems indecisive when he comes up into the press technique, which used to be his strength. Bottomline, hes no where near worth the the $15 million dollars they slated to pay him now."

Yeah, but that's all relative...

hes no where near worth the the $15 million dollars they slated to pay him now

None of his suitors at present are looking at his skill set and planning to pay him $15M/yr, but at $4-5M/yr his skill set suddenly looks a lot better.

re: Nnamdi Asomugha (All in one)

And it wasn't just Asomugha who underachieved and overpaid on that roster, lots of players underperformed. DRC, Cullen Jenkins, Jason Babin, Trent Cole, etc. Not take to make excuses for those guys, but I'm sure the coaching and locker room played a part in all of them failing miserably. I'm sure a scouting report on a majority of their players on defense last year wouldn't be too favorable.

At a discounted rate, while there still would be plenty of risk involved, it could certainly be very worthwhile to kick the tires on a possible deal.

No one even knows how much money he's asking for if he's already still going to get paid 4mil this season from the Eagles.

True. What if the asking price is 2 million? Added on with the money the Eagles are paying him, that's still more than what DRC got from Denver and on average from what KC is playing Sean Smith. It's also still more than what we gave Lewis. He gets to re-unite with his former DC on a contending team... that could lead to nice multi year deal the upcoming offseason.

True, a 1-year contract like the one you proposed could be really good for him financially, since the market was/is flooded with quality CBs this offseason his market value wasn't/isn't as high as it could be f.e. next offseason.
