Free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is creating some serious waves. Everyone wants to speculate where the top corner will go and free agency has yet to start. Imagine the madness when Asomugha officially hits the market. SI.com’s Peter King calls Asomugha’s free agency a race for “the best defensive free agent since Deion Sanders.”
It is possible that Asomugha returns to Oakland, however, other teams have been gaining steam as potential suitors for his services. The Baltimore Ravens, Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are the most likely destinations. The New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks are also possible.
Wait a second, the Cowboys?!
“Go back in history. Remember when Jerry Jones, against the wishes of son Steven, gave Deion Sanders a $13 million signing bonus in 1995 to come to Dallas? (Jerry thought his son was going to punch him over it.) Jones has the ability to fit Asomugha under his cap. With Tony Romo and DeMarcus Ware the only huge-money players on the roster, the Joneses can find a way to shoehorn an Asomugha contract into the fold,” King wrong in his Monday Morning Quarterback column.
There is no way that this news will not get Cowboys fans excited. It is common knowledge that the ‘Boys need help in the secondary and Asomugha is the best player that they will be able to add to the unit. The move must be done.
Jerry Jones has been known to make a splash or two in the past, so let’s wait and see if he does so this free agency period.
