Usually March Madness is taking care of me at this time, but I'm not sure I can wait another month for something to happen!

It's more than likely not even about the money. I guarantee that he counts as the league minimum against the cap this year for whoever signs him. He'll get a two year deal with a nice signing bonus and maybe $7-8 guaranteed, with most of that back loaded on the second year. We have (and will) do a lot worse for our team with a lot more money. I wouldn't sweat it. Loomis has these things figured out and wouldn't even pursue him if he couldn't make it work for the team as a whole. The decision for Asomugha boils down to either playing for an already proven defense without knowing his roll or playing for the coach that "made" him on an unproven defense. It's a tough spot.

Agreed. I also think he is sorta holding the phone line open a while longer in case a third team wants to jump in and make a bid.

If I'm wrong about this guy I'll be the first to admit it, but he spent the last two years being burned by every WR he lined up against whether it was man coverage or zone.
I hope his signing if he does doesn't result in us losing a younger player.

How many players are we going to sign for whom the "magic payday" resulted in their lack of commensurate performance. I'd rather hungry and slightly less talented than supremely talented and unmotivated.

Maybe we should put their contracts in a performance base only type of way, we wouldn't have to worry about a salary cap issue, he!! the way our D played last year they would be elgible for food stamps.

Florida Gulf Coast University?!?

Are you kidding?!?

Men's College Basketball with its one year commitments and decline in passing, dribbling, and skilled shooting is geauxing the way of the NBA...

And yet you get Florida Gulf Coast University, I'm back in!

Re: Report: Saints “Pushing” To Sign CB Nnamdi Asomugha

REALLY?! This guy is one of our starting QBs and with Nnamdi, lewis. greer, robinson and porter coming back our secondary will be the best in the nfl.

with victor, lofton, vilma, hawthorne not bad at linebacker either

if we land albert at lt

all we need is the dline and the draft should be about nothing but the dline

That sounds pretty magical.....don't count on it though. I can't imagine how we can make ALL of that work. It is nice to dream though.
