The Philadelphia Eagles have two highly touted corners in Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie whose futures with the team are uncertain after this season. Rodgers-Cromartie is set to become a free agent. However, making a deal with him or any other player is not a priority for the Birds at the moment. With a 3-6 record and preparing to start a rookie quarterback on Sunday, the team’s focus is rightly on getting things done on the field. DRC will make $1,963,750 this year. But the far bigger paycheck goes to Nnamdi Asomugha, who is set to earn a staggering $15 million in base salary next season with $4 million guaranteed. Jeff McLane of the Inquirer believes that the Birds will hang on to Asomugha, so as not to take a $4 million hit, but that his salary will be cut based on his production.

  • dEYAWN JACKSON TOO. That dude is not a football player.
    He ducks out of bounds or flops on the ground as soon
    as hes about to get hit. He cant even catch very well.
  • De YAwn Jackson is like a faster Todd Pinkston.
    God the Eagles have had some horrible recievers.
  • Yes they both need to go they can't cover or tackle one gets burt every week they play like high school guys.
