If Troy Aikman can do it so can you, Nnamdi Asomugha.

ESPN recently chauffeured Raiders CB Asomugah around the office for their ongoing project "Take Your Athlete to Work Day," showing him the ropes of sports radio.

We've seen a lot of pro athletes find post-pro careers in the field of on-air talent. And unless he's another Jay Bilas who constantly bashes his alma mater and sides with UNC, the Raiders could finally have a friend in mainstream media.

Asomugha is considered one of the league's leading defenders, making 33 tackles this past season. But does he have what it takes to analyze the game?

Asomugha had this to say about his experience: "It was nerve-racking, but I could definitely see myself doing this for a long time after my playing days are over."

Asomugha is still only 28 and his playing days are far from over. But I guess it's never too early to think about the future, especially if you're an athlete prone to injury and early retirement.
