........Haha? I suppose all that square peg in a round hole stuff only applies to guys who played defense for us last year then? Seriously, the guy was totally in the wrong scheme and unable to utilize his strengths. Like his ability to disrupt receivers off the line.

Put him back in the right system and there's no reason he can't still play at a high level. No serious injuries to worry about, which supports what others have said about his body not breaking down.. and even if he has lost a step, his natural ability and instincts should be more than enough to make up for it. The elite corners generally stay effective for a lot longer than the average ones. Look at Charles Woodson, Champ Bailey, Deio
n Sanders, Darrell Green, Aeneas Williams etc. I maintain that if the price is right, they would be crazy not to sign him

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

It costs us less than 2 miilion to keep these guys in lieu of cutting them.
Agreed I was scratching my head at every response after that

Re: New Orleans Saints Better Off Not Signing Nnamdi Asomugha

Robinson probably but this might be the year he bounce back. Remember he our 1st rd pick and he only been in the league 3 yrs. 1st time as a legitimate starter. I bet if anybody invested s much s the saints did will not be so quick to give up on him


Jabari, are you kidding me. They're plenty article you can find he was compared to revis but since new Orleans marketing is not as great of a Oakland or new York he is one of those unnotice players. True, he was nick up for a couple years but he was on the field I felt comfortable whoever he was line up against (Julius jones, Steve smith, or whomever) I blame spags for line up Robinson against they top wr threat

Keep 'em all if Nmandi is signed. Look at last year. Didn't we have a lot of injuries at corner? Greer, White, Marquis Johnson in preseason? Depth at any position from four guys who have all been starters in this league is a rare thing to come by. Why would anyone want to get rid of that?

Well, that's no different from any other free agency acquisition the Saints could make.

There are no guarantees that players will play to their full potential and/or that they can stay healthy, so there are always risks involved, but that's the nature of the business.

You should ALWAYS try to improve your team through FA. NA would be an upgrade at CB. Only question is the $$$

Re: New Orleans Saints Better Off Not Signing Nnamdi Asomugha

I'm not sure Nnamdi offers the best bang for the buck...

And talking with friends that are Eagles fans that aren't stereo-typical Dome Stumbling types but actually know something -tell me he seemed past his prime and wasn't worth half the money...

Plus, it's been document he's selfish and self-centered...

I'd rather go younger and sign a Safety like Huff and give us flexibility and youth...

Greer and Robinson are going nowhere unless traded as money is either guaranteed or costs little and will provide depth...

So why sign an aged corner with limited cap space and the upcoming Graham signing?!?

They said the same thing about Charles Woodson when the packers signed him, it worked out well for them
