Larry holder also says that the meeting went well and we are essentially waiting for Asomugha to decide where he wants to go

We now know the type of corner Rob, and the Saints envision for this D, because of the people they have targeted thus far. 6-0ft or better, not afraid to come in and support the run and excels in man to man situations.

David Amerson from NC State would be a nice pick at 6-1 and 205 with a 4.44 40 time, but unfortunately the Saints would need a 2nd rounder to get him.


STRENGTHS: Amerson has rare height and length for the position and actually played primarily at safety in high school. He has the size and ballskills for the next level, but scouts are also impressed with his competitive drive to get better, showing vast improvement between his freshman and sophomore seasons. And the coaching staff says there is no problem keeping Amerson hungry, as he is one of the top practice players each week. Could prove a fit in a press-based scheme. Highly aggressive defender who intercepted many of his passes reading the eyes of quarterbacks and jumping short routes.


WEAKNESSES: Concerns about his fluidity and straight-line speed. Typically lined up in off-man and zone coverage in college, but his lack of elite speed would make that a difficult fit in the NFL. Aggression makes him vulnerable to double-moves. Amerson was beaten soundly in several-highly anticipated matchups in 2012, which contributed to losses to Tennessee and Clemson.

Sign Nnamdi, put together a trade in order to get Saffold from the Rams (im thinking something that may be involving Ivory) and either go with best defensive player available in the draft or trade the 15th pick down in order to gain more picks for depth

Asomuhga IMHO would be a good get. I could see trading a CB after we see if Nnamdi still has it.

Just found this on NFL.com. Posting from my smart phone, so...

We knew that free agent Nnamdi Asomugha was due to meet with former Raiders defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in New Orleans on Sunday. What we didn't know was that general manager Mickey Loomis and head coach Sean Payton would join the welcoming party before jetting off to the NFL meetings in Phoenix.

Loomis told the Times-Picayune Monday morning that both sides "hit it off" during Asomugha's free-agent visit.

Loomis didn't reveal any specifics on contract talks, but maintains that Asomugha can still play at an elite level despite his disappointing two-year stint in Philadelphia.

"We're always looking for good players to improve our team," said Loomis, "and we think Nnamdi would be a great fit for our defense and our team."

Although the visit was a positive one, no signing appears to be imminent. The Saints are waiting on Asomugha to decide where he wants to play.

The primary competition could come from the San Francisco 49ers, who are still believed to be a "strong possibility" after hosting Asomugha last week. The cornerback was born in Louisiana, but spent his college career and his first eight NFL seasons in the Bay Area.

Things are going well between him and the Saints. If price is right, I think it'll happen. RT @WHODATDuggDat: Any news on Asomugha?
