So what. Nearly every expert, coach, and player claimed he was the best lock-down CB in the entire NFL.

He was thrown at less than any other CB in the league.

The guy was a phenominal CB and probably still is. Placing the best man CB in Philly's scheme is like putting Jonathan Vilma at DE.

Everyone questioned the move when Philly made it and it turns out everyone was correct. A terrible fit.

Even at his current age (he'll be 32 soon) he'd be better than anyone we have or have ever had at CB.

And since he has enough money now to buy a small country, maybe he'd like to come somewhere for the one thing his money can't buy.

Re: Nnamdi ?

one if we get him cheap, which i can't see it. He is only good for maybe one to two years. Saying that we only have a few more good years with Drew, so why not put the best people we can get for now and get another ring. Now if we can put some studs up front, Jason David would even be a all pro in the back end.
So I would rather put it up front, pass

Re: Nnamdi ?

I agree he is probably better than anything we have on our roster and I would be for it so tired of the play with what we have crap. Time for the hammer to come down and make changes.

I agree. How old is Ray Lewis? We don't have that long left and this would be the best defensive signing we had in a long time. We need this guy.

Re: Nnamdi ?

I think the last two years tarnished his talets I bet someone get him for a cheap price. Oh to answer the question hell yes he's still better than anyone on our squad.

Nnamdi is now available.

You know, now that we are supposedly under the cap - simply cutting EITHER Jonathan vilma OR Will Smith would give us enough money to pursue Nnamdi.

Would YOU cut Vilma or Smith outright to get Nnamdi?

I would. In a heartbeat.
