It was a startling move when the Oakland Raiders decided to let the best defensive back in the NFL hit the market despite coming off his third Pro Bowl and second First Team All-Pro season in 2010.
Every team could certainly use a player of his caliber on their squad, but few will be able to afford him.
Plus, the teams interested should have Super Bowl dreams because most of Asomugha's years in the NFL have been with losing teams.
What sets him apart from most others is his philanthropy. He helps orphans and widows while trying to provide a higher education to students in need of extra help. He won the 2009 Byron "Whizzer" White Man of the Year Award for his work.
Whenever the lock out ends for the NFL, Asomugha will find his phone soon ringing off the hook with teams trying to recruit him. This probably will include the Raiders as well.
Here are 10 teams he might best fit for various reasons, though it is impossible to guess where he might be headed yet.
