Lost in the news (and possibly lost because of the news) of the Denver Broncos signing cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was the fact that there is another Philadelphia Eagles corner still in play here. The sweepstakes for former Eagles (and Dream Teamer) cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha has been narrowed to five teams with the Broncos amongst those remaining according to ProFootballTalk.
What’s that you say? Denver signed Drayton Florence Rodgers-Cromartie, no way they sign Tracy Porter Nnamdi Asomugha as well! Yes, that is what we thought in 2012 too. Florence ended up being jettisoned prior to the season and Porter went on to win AFC Defensive Player of the Week (amongst other things).
So yeah, as long as the Broncos have money to spend and as long as Asomugha wants to play for a contender both Denver and the four time All Pro will remain on each other’s radars.
Those other teams interested in him? The Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, Arizona Cardinals and off course the San Francisco 49ers.
