If the New Orleans Saints sign Nnamdi Asomugha what should they do with Jabari Greer, Patrick Robinson?

It has become clear from the comments on NOLA.com that the majority of fans want the New Orleans Saints to sign unrestricted free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
But if the Saints do sign Asomugha, a four-time All-Pro, the team could be faced with another question:
What should the Saints do with incumbent starting cornerbacks Jabari Greer and Patrick Robinson?
The Saints have already signed former Pittsburgh cornerback Keenan Lewis to a five-year, $26.3 million contract, and adding Asomugha could make for a crowded secondary.
Although both Greer and Robinson had down seasons last year playing in former defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo's zone defense, the Saints' coaching staff and front-office personnel remain high on the two cornerbacks.
If Asomugha is signed, the Saints have a few options.
They could decide to keep all four cornerbacks along with 2012 fifth-round pick Corey White, forming a strong collection of pass defenders.
They also could decide to release Greer or Robinson, but neither is a strong candidate because Greer's salary is guaranteed and Robison, who remains on his rookie contract, would offer little savings.
The Saints also could decide to trade one of the two, with the 25-year-old Robinson being the most likely candidate because of his age and reasonable contract (two years remaining with caps hits of $2.2 million and $2.3 million.
What should the Saints do?

We had 4 running backs ... 5 or 6 good CB's sounds perfect to me!

Given how our D has looked, having a couple too many quality CBs doesn't really come across as a bad thing to me

I'd like to watch all of these guys fight it out in camp. My guess is that Keenan would lock up a starting job, while Nnamdi and Jabari would split time to keep both of the old men fresh (likely with Nnamdi being on for 60-65% of plays.) Then Corey and Johnny on back up duty all year.

if we can get trade value for Robinson of a pick do it. I think we can do better. I'm worried about the lack of draft picks this year, heightened also by no compensatory picks.

I would say definitely keep them all because it's a rare occasion when a team suffers no injuries to any of their CBs during a season, so quality depth is key in that position.

The only thing would naturally be if they can afford to spend so much of the cap on one position - wink, wink Mr. Brees - but if Asomugha comes cheap then they can probably afford it, if not Greer is on the bubble.

Johnny Patrick was placed on waivers and was picked up by the Chargers, so he hasn't been with the Saints for a while now.

I believe we should try Roman Harper at an OLB position nd maybe give Jabari Greer or Patrick Robinson a try at Safety , they can't be any worst then Harper

I also think the team should hold on to all of those guys and let them fight it out in training camp. With the physicality of the sport, injuries happen and at least Robinson and Greer know the surroundings. You would have to think that it would be Lewis and Nnamdi's jobs to lose.

If a trade presents itself, and we can acquire more picks or a player that can help immediately, I can't see this being a bad thing either.
