The Philadelphia Eagles have cashed in on this year's NFL free agency, signing cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha to a five-year, $60 million contract on Friday.

Asomugha is guaranteed $25 million on a deal that would be paying him until his mid-30s.

While many people have pegged the former Oakland Raiders shut-down corner as one of the best players in the NFL, there are many things that prove the opposite.

Age, money and on-field effectiveness are just a few reasons why Asomugha could be a bad choice for the Eagles and head coach Andy Reid.

While the Eagles may have needed more help at different weak spots, like wide receiver or backup running back, they've decided to put all their eggs into one basket.

Here are the top reasons why Philadelphia should have passed on Asomugha and his humongous deal.
