According to recent media reports, veteran cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha may be on the verge of signing with either the San Francisco 49ers or the New Orleans Saints.It's been a rough two years for Asomugha. He was the main piece acquired to assemble the now infamous "Dream Team", a team that will instead go down as more of a nightmare for the city of Philadelphia.While Nnamdi had his fair share of bad coverage moments, I believe his performance in Philly was a product of mediocre defensive pressure from the line and horrendous safety help over the top.The scary, and kind of surprising thing, is how cheap Asomugha will probably be signed for.His production over the last two seasons doesn't exactly warrant him demanding a huge contract, which is why it's surprising that more teams aren't trying to pounce on the opportunity to sign him. But alas, it appears to have boiled down to the 49ers or the Saints, so let's take a look at the odds.New Orleans SaintsOn top of the return of head coach Sean Payton, the addition of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan provides the usually offensive minded Saints with the capability of playing a full 60 minutes of sound football this season.Should Asomugha join the Saints, he would bolster an already solid secondary that includes veteran corner Jabari Greer, Keenan Lewis (acquired from Pittsburgh) & safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper.While an intriguing option lies within the team currently assembled in New Orleans, I see Nnamdi deferring to an even scarier team being put together in San Francisco.Chances of signing: 25 percentSan Francisco 49ersSpeaking of dream teams, the thought of the 49ers being better than the team that took the field during Super Bowl XLVII isn't a dream, but almost a guaranteed reality.While the Super Bowl champion Ravens are seemingly falling apart piece by piece, the 49ers brought back almost its entire core group. San Francisco also made one of the most surprising moves in free agency in acquiring veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin from Baltimore for a sixth round pick (which still amazes me). Oh and if that didn't leave you salivating, they STILL have 14 draft picks...14.Since San Francisco declared themselves out of the Darrelle Revis sweepstakes, they're still searching high and low for a premier cornerback. They also seem to be looking to replace Carlos Rogers, as he didn't do too well in the second half of last season.The amount of talent on this team is startling. If Asomugha really wants a crack at his first ring, he'd better get his pen ready, now.Chances of signing: 75 percent
