Figured I'd get this thread out of the way before 5 of them pop up.

Discuss!

I will be the first one to admit that I wanted hawks to sign him when Eagles signed him

I'd say worth a look if we were desperate for a starting outside corner. But we're not, so no thanks.

Just cause Asomugha might be released if he doesn't want to restructure his contract doesn't mean we could get him on the cheap. Just cause the Eagles aren't going to pay him 15 million doesn't mean he still won't get 8-10 million on the free agent market if he's released.

I got diagnosed with a case of Asomugha in the Philippines once.

I wondered when this would pop up. He could be great for a steal, but the only way the eagles cut him is if they can get his price reduced. If he wanted to reduce he could just stay, so I doubt he'd take a reduction to come here instead of stay there.

Also, I'm not sure how that logic works for starting a thread because you're worried too many of them would pop up lol. And at least put it in the NFL forum where it belongs sheeeeez ;)

Really don't see the need to spend 8-10 million on a CB in the face of other needs. Would it be cool to have him? Sure. It would be cool to have all the top talent.

Actually I think he would be a great pickup if the price was decent ($3-5 million/year). He was a shutdown corner while playing press in Oakland and it wasn't until he went to play zone in PHI that he had coverage issues. Bring him back to play man coverage and he'll thrive again.

And yet the answer to the zone read option is to play zone coverage. Which means guys like him are going to have a harder time of it in the next few years until/if the zone read option ever goes away.

2013: $15 million, 2014-2015: $12 million, 2016: Free Agent

That would be quite the pay-cut. Granted he's 31, but someone is going to overpay to pick him up. Be curious to see is asking price if he hits FA.

No thanks rather pick up Osi or Freeney. We need to hit the QB more than defend the pass.

Well, he'd get along better with Sherman than Revis, so he's got that going for him.

Nice! I was going to say presumably he would be looking to trade Wilson for him, but your one was better.

Only if they cut him and we could sign him to a new contract. He's a top 5 press cover corner. Unfortunately, PHI doesn't use him how he can be best suited.

The Eagles actually played a lot of man coverage this year, last year is when they played the zone and he struggled. From what I've read from Eagles fan, he's a poor tackler and slower. Again I don't see the point of paying an expensive vet to be our nickel corner, let a young athletic guy do it.

We should learn from the Eagles spending a bunch of money on corners (In 2011 they had Samuel, Asomugha and Rodgers-Cromartie) doesn't give you a good defense if you can't rush the QB.

I would rather pick up a CB that fits our system instead of just a big name. Can someone please tell me how he fits into tight press coverage?

Costa lotta, not wortha bigga costa.

Player's skills eroded by age, not a premier CB any more. We can do better, cheaper, with a younger developing player more suited to our needs.

We have outside depth now, we need a slot guy to play nickel, that would mean finding a guy thats quicker more then faster but great burst for 20 yds in my mind. Scouring the market and draft we should find a player that fits that need a lot cheaper I would think. As much as Trufant got bashed last year he was a good bargain for what we were asking.

Absolutely not. He got burned too regularly last year and you can't blame it on "the system". I watch the Eagles when I'm not watching the Hawks and you do not want this guy.

We already have tons of depth at the cornerback position. Plus, he would cost a good amount as well. We need pass rushers and wideouts!

I would pass so that we can use on money on more pressing needs like some D-Line help.

Apparently, Asomugha also:

* Was a bad tipper.
* Often referred to himself in the third person.
* Didn't always wash his hands after using the bathroom.
* Would only address Nick Foles as "Napoleon Dynamite."
* Would only address DeSean Jackson as "Tito."
* Had it stipulated in his contract that co-workers had to avoid direct eye contact.

And so on and so forth.

They used to interview him a lot here in the Bay area. He seemed like a model citizen, was well spoken and donated a good portion of his time to charity. Maybe Philly ruined him, who knows.
btw- I don't want him to be signed here because of the reasons stated above but I think he may be getting a bad wrap.
