Nnamdi Asomugha to New York Jets a Matter of Money, Nothing Else
Nnamdi Asomugha should be a member of the New York Jets within the next 12 hours. If he's not, you can bet that it was a matter of contract negotiations and nothing else. With the Houston Texans locking up cornerback Jonathan Joseph, the Jets are now up against only (barely) the San Francisco 49ers.
A couple of experts opinions, first Via ProFootballTalk:
The bad news for Houston fans? The Texans are out of the Nnamdi Asomugha sweepstakes.
The good news? They don’t need him.
Adam Schefter of ESPN and Mark Berman of MyFOXHouston.com report that the Texans have agreed to terms on a five-year deal with former Bengals cornerback Jonathan Joseph...
...With the Texans out of the running for Asomugha, it comes down to the Niners, Jets, and whoever else gets into the running.
Or whoever else is already in the running. We’d recommend not going to sleep on the possibility that the Raiders will find a way to keep him around.
Filed to ESPN: Texans reach agreement with former Bengals CB Johnathan Joseph on a five-year deal. Nnamdi to Jets looking more likely.
Well, as a Patriots fan, I am terrified. If these rumors become reality, the Jets will have the best two cornerbacks in the NFL. They also have one of the more underrated safeties in the league, Jim Leonhard. With Rex Ryan at the controls, it would be surprising if the Jets don't bring the heat on about 75 percent of their plays.
The one issue I have with this signing, from an economics standpoint, is why the Jets didn't just sign Antonio Cromartie. He knows the system. He performed extremely well in the system. He's younger, and most importantly, he is cheaper.
But I digress. Rex likes to always make a big splash, and GM Mike Tannenbaum has done a terrific job of making that happen.
I just hope they save enough money to sign a big play receiver, or they are going to be in big trouble offensively.
Wait, what am I saying. I'll be delighted if that happens!
