Being wanted must be nice. Anthony Adams adores you, Nnamdi Asomugha.

Asomugha was jettisoned by the Eagles, because it turns out that giving a cornerback Darrelle Revis money (or at least Darrelle Revis’ definition of Darrelle Revis money) isn’t ideal when at times — most times, even — he’s playing like, I dunno, Stanford Routt. But there are still many other times when Asomugha is sort of OK, and even some others when he’s still quite good. Not great or excellent, but good.

Both the 49ers and Saints could use some more good in their respective defensive backfields, which is why they’re reportedly the two teams bidding for Asomugha, according to Ian Rapoport.

The Rapsheet says that as far as Asomugha’s future employment is concerned, it’s down to those two NFL outposts, with the Saints quite understandably making the most aggressive push. New Orleans essentially needs anyone who can run kinda fast and jump real good. Those are the minimum qualifications to play for and upgrade a secondary that gave up an average of 292.6 passing yards per game this past season (31st), most of which came in disgusting chunk yardage form (they allowed 66 receptions of 20 yards or more).

The Saints already started their desperate secondary rebuild by adding Keenan Lewis to be the main shutdown guy, but slotting in Asomugha on the opposite side would be a nice little haul. If they’re successful, Asomugha would then be placed in the ideal situation for where his career has currently spiraled to, one in which he’s not asked to regularly line up against the opposition’s fastest and most skilled receiver.

That’s why the fit in San Francisco is a fine one too, as the Niners already have Carlos Rogers to do most of the heavy lifting. San Fran’s lust for Asomugha is driven by both the desire to create that tandem, but also more broadly to reinforce the secondary after Dashon Goldson departed for Tampa Bay. He’d also be an upgrade over Tarell Brown and Chris Culliver.

  1. I’m setting myself up for the disappointment now. (Niners fan here) I think he goes back with Ryan in New Orleans. If I’m not mistaken, New Orleans can offer more $.

  2. I would say Tarell Brown is a better corner than Carlos Rogers at this point in their careers, rogers wasn’t that good this past season. he might be the vet who gets cut in order to bring our cap down to bring in Asomugha.

    • Carlos certainly had his bad moments last year, but he’s a solid #2. Cutting him would only save 1 million because of all the guaranteed money.

  3. If he chooses the 49ers it is because he wants to win, if he chooses the Saints it is because he wants the money. It is really that type of decision.

    • Rightttt. because he doesn’t have a chance at winning with the Saints LOL. How many superbowls has the 49ers won in the last couple years? thank you, moron.

  4. I love the 49ers, but most people are underestimating the Saints. I doubt the Saints will be the worst Deefense in the league this year, with or without NA. This year they can at leats be ‘average’ and they already have one of the top offense in the league whom by all accounts should be better this year, which means the Saints can easily win 10 games or more. And it isn’t like the 49ers defense was great in the playoffs(They sucked actually) and it isn’t like they have not loss any players this offseason. The 49ers will be great for the next 5 years, but the difference between this year and last year is because everyone is gunnoing for them now, everyone has been studying the pistol formation and there defensive breakdowns and everyone has been carbon copying their defense to make thier own teams better (e.g. Seahawks, Saints, Eagles). This isn’t going to be a cake walk for the niners this year and they may win fewer schedules. I actually fear the Seahawks more than the niners and if the Saints get a pretty decent defense I will fear them too.

  5. If he came to the Saints that would improve the Saints defense that much more. And that’s what the Saints need. He would also make a smart choice going there too as some people think that “Oh if he go 49ers he’s going for the win” bolony, that’s just a load of poopoo lol. The Saints are an elite team, but (yes I’m a who dat fan) if he goes to the Saints that would improve the horrible defense we already have, but I have a good feeling the Saints will be the team this year, :)

  20. Thanks for your text. I would love to say that your health insurance specialist also works for the benefit of the actual coordinators of the group insurance policy. The health agent is given a list of benefits looked for by individuals or a group coordinator. Such a broker does indeed is search for individuals or maybe coordinators which usually best complement those wants. Then he reveals his advice and if both parties agree, the particular broker formulates binding agreement between the two parties.

  21. Thanks for your posting on this weblog. From my own personal experience, there are times when softening up a photograph could possibly provide the professional photographer with a dose of an artsy flare. Often however, the soft blur isn’t what exactly you had in mind and can in many cases spoil an otherwise good photograph, especially if you anticipate enlarging it.
