It seems like just yesterday that teams from all over the NFL were stuck in a bidding war for Nnamdi Asomugha. The Eagles eventually won the cornerback’s rights, which led to Vince Young dubbing Philadelphia the “Dream Team.” The “Dream Team” moniker didn’t last with the Eagles, and neither did Asomugha. The team will release the 31-year-old corner on Wednesday, according to Howard Eskin of Fox 29 TV. Asomugha signed a five-year, $60 million contract in July 2011. Asomugha has $4 million of his contract guaranteed for 2013, according to Rotoworld. Asomugha was a top cornerback during his eight years in Oakland. He struggled with a change in scheme in Philadelphia. There are conflicting reports about the Eagles’ intentions. Albert Breer of NFL.com says the team does not plan to release Asomugha on Wednesday. If Asomugha is released, he will immediately become a free agent. Teams would not have to wait until the league start date of March 12 to sign him. Photo via Facebook/Nnamdi Asomugha
