Even on a "bad D" his numbers should reflect pass defense at a minimum and they don't.

I, for one, believe he's more hype than substance and at 31, we can get a younger (and cheaper) option than Jason David 2.0 or P.Rob Sr....

Well said sir, I couldn't agree more, would rather take my chances with a younger person than a over hyped Nnamdi.

You have it the wrong way round, He is an excellent man coverage corner which is what he played every season in Oakland, Philly forced him into a zone coverage scheme and it didn't work
Kind of difficult for a guy thats played man coverage 90% of the time for 9 seasons to go to zone coverage every game for 2 years

Just look at what happened with our corners last year, Greer was a decent man corner and looked completely lost in Spags zone defense...

Asomugha could come very cheap if he is willing. Philly has to pay him $4 million this year either way, so he should not 'need' a monster contract. Sign him for one year with a ton of incentive bonuses and a give him the option for 2014.

Man I hope we land him. He and Ryan were together in Oakland. This could be huge!

Only if he comes cheap and doesn't affect the salary cap, go for it. We've done worse things like ( Jason David ) comes to mind.
Now cut Harper and convince Ed Reed he needs to come home, this would make my day.
In my mind the only other concerns is DT & LT.

This. Nnamdi is a big, physical man corner who tackles well. Speaking from personal experience, when you prefer man and have to play zone it takes the aggression out of you.

The key word "could", don't get to excited he may be exactly what he was last year and we have enough of that already. The only difference is that what we have now is younger than Nnamdi and probably cheaper.
