Ian Rapoport tweets that the New Orleans Saints are “pushing really hard” to sign free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha.

Coach Chip Kelly doesn’t know where Desean Jackson got the idea he would use him like De’Anthony Thomas, a running back for the Oregon Ducks.
When asked how he thought he would be utilized, "Kind of similar to what De'Anthony Thomas was doing at Oregon," Jackson replied. Kelly cleared that picture up quickly, pointing out they are two different players.
If the New Orleans Saints miss out of free agent cornerback
Nnamdi Asomugha, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com wouldn’t be surprised to see the team
