Whenever free of charge agency begins, and we assume it will start eventually, the greatest name on the open marketplace will be cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. With the Raiders not expected to be significant players for his services, he could be destined to sign a significant deal with a new team.
And Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News has floated an intriguing theory regarding Asomugha’s ultimate destination. Per Sabin, the Cowboys could try to land Asomugha, in big component to maintain him from going to the Eagles.
There’s little if any concrete evidence at this point on which to base that possibility, but it is hardly out of the question to believe that the Eagles, who signed Asante Samuel on the initial day of totally free agency three years ago, will make a play for Asomugha or that the Cowboys, whom numerous think are taking into consideration parting methods with Terence Newman, would attempt to get in on the action.
Of course, that could attract the Redskins into the bidding. And it could prompt any other team that covets Asomugha to increase their budget for him, too.
No matter how it all turns out, Asomugha will be the crown jewel of the 2011 class of totally free agents. If there ever is a class of 2011 free of charge agents.
