    Nnamdi Asomugha's contract voided

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=6004943

    Pro Bowl cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha's contract voided and he will be allowed to become a free agent without the Oakland Raiders being able to use their franchise tag on him, according to an NFL Players Association document.



    Asomughaís deal included a little-known clause that said his contract would void if he didnít achieve his not-likely-to-be-earned incentives in 2010 -- and he didn'ít.
    His contract also contained a stipulation that if he didnít achieve his incentives, the Raiders would agree not to designate him their franchise or transition player.
    To achieve his incentives, Asomugha had to play in a greater number of defensive plays in 2010 than he did in 2009, and this season Asomugha played in only 14 games whereas he played in all 16 in 2009.

    Maybe Mr. Belichik will make a couple of moves for Nnamdi, it could happen.

    He will be the hottest defensive free agent. Many teams will be interested.

    He will get paid. Shouldn't have let Cable go, if anyone is as pissed as Lechler no one is going to want to come back that doesn't have to.

    I think he will end up in Dallas replacing Terrance Newman.

    He could help the 49ers pass defense like no other.

    We are pretty set at the corner position with Revis, Cromartie and Wilson.

    If they wouldn't pay Asante Samuel big money to retain him, I doubt they will splurge here. Nnamdi would have to be willing to take less money to play on a great team.

    jury is out on Wilson

    Cromartie is a FA to be, like Asomugha

    unlikely that the Jets get Nnamdi, though.

    Belichick and the Pats are just the best drafters out there, this is well known.

    Can't make a judgement on Wilson yet, see what he does next year.
