Houston Texans Now the Enemy in Nnamdi Asomugha Sweepstakes

The Texans are now reportedly the frontrunner to land Nnamdi Asomugha.

According to NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi, Houston is now in the "lead" for Asomugha’s services.  He believes the deal would average between $12-14 million per season.

I would prefer not to see the Jets lose Asomugha because of a few million per year because that kind of money is almost inconsequential in the NFL. Whatever you get for it probably would not be as good as Nnamdi, and you can always clear some cap room if you really need it. I also don't think somebody like Bryan Thomas and his cap number should come between the team and adding an elite player.

I do recognize the dilemma going nuts with the bidding would put the Jets in, though. They have another elite cornerback whose agents will likely chirp in his ear if the team is willing to pay a lot more to a guy at the same position than he is making. Asomugha's last contract was an impetus in last year's long Darrelle Revis standoff.
