Nnamdi Asomugha (All in one)

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Its funny watching all these big names come across hoping they accept league minimum and yet they leave for lesser teams for more money. All we have to show thus far is a long snapper......

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha

God, we need this guy. I don't wanna hear the age thing. Champ Bailey is still getting it done at a VERY high level and he's 35.

So as long as you don't leave him 1 on 1 with Torrey Smith. But honestly, what CB could go 1 on 1 with Torrey Smith?

Anyways, it was more of the wrong system than level of play for Nnamdi.

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha

Free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha is visiting the 49ers Thursday.

It's already been reported that there's mutual interest here. The Niners are in the market for a bigger corner and Asomugha could be looking to return "home." He played his college ball at Cal and spent the first eight years of his NFL career in Oakland. Asomugha could come very cheap as he's still collecting $4 million from the Eagles in 2013 no matter what.

Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter

I think we need to hop on this. It just seems like a natural and seemless fit. He's already collecting 4 million, offer him another 4 on a 1 year deal and see if he bites. DRC took a 1 year 5 million dollar contract for his prove it deal. I wouldn't mind doing a 2 year 10-12 million dollar deal either.

Let's do this Loomis!

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha

Well, papz does bring up a good point, though, about Nnamdi already banking 4 million from the Eagles this year. We should have a decent shot at him, but we'll just have to see how much more other teams are willing to risk for him. I also have no idea if the Saints are even pursuing him.

Baily got it done except for being completely shafted in the playoffs.

Re: Nnamdi Asomugha

Don’t rule out Saints in Nnamdi chase | ProFootballTalk
The 49ers have lured cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha back to the Bay Area for a visit. But don’t rule out the team that employs one of the men who coached Nnamdi when he played in Oakland.

Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is believed to be making a big push to get Nnamdi to New Orleans, per a source with knowledge of Asomugha’s situation.

Other interested teams include the Cardinals, Texans, and Broncos.

When Asomugha signed with the Eagles in 2011, Ryan’s Cowboys provided the stiffest competition. In the end, Asomugha picked Philly, but only after Ryan nearly convinced him to choose Dallas.

Said the source of Asomugha’s attitude toward Ryan: “[Asomugha] loves him and trusts him.”

If Nnamdi, who has never played in a playoff game during 10 NFL season, gets out of San Fran without a contract, the Saints could be the team to watch.
