Nnamdi Asomugha is widely considered the NFL's best cornerback (although both Darrelle Revis and Charles Woodson might have something to say about that).
While the Raiders will try their best to resign him, teams like the Philadelphia Eagles, the Detroit Lions, the Dallas Cowboys, the Washington Redskins, the Houston Texans and many others will be rolling out huge offers in hopes to drastically improve their secondaries.
Regardless of all the attention Asomugha will receive, signing with the Houston Texans might be his most intriguing option.
Houston had been on the verge of making the playoffs for a couple of years in a row before taking a step back in 2010. Despite their 6-10 record, though, the Texans have a very talented football team that seems just a couple of close wins away from entering the postseason.
Head coach Gary Kubiak was given a pardon by owner Bob McNair, and didn't waste any time in adding Wade Phillips as defensive coordinator. Phillips will implement a 3-4 scheme that should fit Houston's personnel almost flawlessly.
In addition to the defensive makeover, stud Texans receiver Andre Johnson has expressed his interest in the team signing Asomugha and has personally taken it upon himself to recruit the elite corner.
Some may feel it's more realistic to invest time in pursuing a guy like Cincinnati's Johnathan Joseph. However, the Cincinnati cornerback has expressed interest in staying with the Bengals, so in reality, Houston probably has a better shot at landing Asomugha.
The Texans may not have much chance of signing Nnamdi, but the rewards would be huge.
