Re: nnamdi asomugha to visit

Asomugha has a form of color-blindness called Deuteranomaly.

So he was born in Lafayette, but grew up in California. No mention just how long he stayed in Louisiana. Let's hope the Saints and he can come to terms. I think he might versatile enough to perform as CB and safety if called upon.

Re: nnamdi asomugha to visit

To visit the other teams and leave without a deal tells me he wants too much money. If he doesn't come cheap, the Saints have no shot at signing him.

Nnamdi - best WR on the field
Keenan - tallest or 2nd best
Greer - slot or shorter wr
Robinson - dime or penny
White - dime or penny or starts doing Safety training?

Jenkins over Harper deep please.
Will Jenkins shine with a group of CB doing their job so he can do his and stop picking up their slack

All silly until we find out were he stands

Nnamdi - $ or ring? Thats the question.

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha to visit


Could Rob Ryan be just what Nnamdi Asomugha needs?

The Philadelphia Eagles cut the cornerback after two lackluster seasons last week. He signed a five-year, $60 million free agent contract before the 2011 season as part of the "Dream Team" moves. Asomugha was considered on par with Darrelle Revis before the failed experiment with the Eagles. He's due to visit the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, according to Matt Maiocco of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

The thought/hope is that the Eagles didn't play to Asomugha's strengths, which were that of a dominant press cornerback with the Raiders. Asomugha was a three-time Pro Bowl corner on the Oakland Raiders.

Ryan brings his aggressive scheme to the Saints in an attempt to fix the No. 31 scoring defense that ranked dead last in yards allowed. If anyone knows how to best use Asomugha, it's Ryan. The two were together for five seasons (2004 to 2008) when Ryan was the Raiders' defensive coordinator.

Asomugha, 31, has reached the second half of his career, but his body isn't breaking down. The 2013 season could be the last chance to show he still has elite skills. The San Francisco 49ers also have shown an interest in Asomugha.

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha to visit

I feel like Harper could thrive if they move him closer to the line and let him play a rover S/LB. Adding Nnamdi would give us a lot of freedom. Greer would be a lockdown nickel.

I'd like to believe playing for Rob Ryan would persuade him some aswell, seen as Ryan was with him for 5 years and 3 pro bowls in Oakland

Re: Namdi coming to New Orleans tommorow!!!!

That Rob Ryan move isnt looking bad at all now...bringing a lot of excitement to the defense for 2013. Dont have to be great, just make plays...We could see the 2009 season all over again
