Nnamdi Asomugha Is a Longshot For The Cowboys

Every Dallas Cowboys fan would love to see top free-agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha suit up for the ‘Boys next season but the closer we get to a new labor deal and free agency, the less likely it seems that Asomugha will wear the star.

One of the only ways that Dallas could land Asomugha is if they release veteran Terrance Newman and open up some cap space. While that move is not too ridiculous, Jerry Jones has said Newman and Mike Jenkins will both return to the team this season and he expects them in their top form.

So without cap space created from Newman’s release, it really is a big longshot for Dallas to land the elite cover corner. Matt Mosley of Fox Sports Southwest wrote today:

Right now, the Cowboys are giving me an “only in our dreams” response to Asomugha queries, but things can change in a hurry. If someone convinced Jerry Jones that Asomugha was truly the missing piece to the Cowboys being a Super Bowl contender, he would move mountains to make it happen. But I don’t think anyone can make that argument right now.

It would be great to land a talent such as Asomugha, but the team and fans need to be realistic about the situation. Don’t get your hopes up and realize that even the Cowboys themselves are looking at this move as a prayer.
