It's Official, Nnamdi Asomugha is a Philadelphia Eagle. Andy Reid has been the mystery suitor all along. The same team that has Asante Samuel just got Nnamdi, Rodgers Cromartie, and aquired Vince Young to replace Kolb. To say they've made a free agency splash would be an immense understatement. Per Adam Schefter, Nnamdi will get a 5 year 60 million dollar contract with 25 million of that guaranteed.
Many fans on the site and around SBN, as well as off the web are speculating that we were merely a bargaining chip and never really had a shot. I'm seriously starting to get the impression that not only is that true, but several other teams such as the Texans, Cowboys, and 49'ers were just fodder to get a high profile big market team to up the ante and make a huge bid.
What's even more sinister is that Nnamdi's agent is also Antonio Cromartie's agent. From the looks of it both of his top clients will be cashing in off of our gullibility and hard work in recruiting and making cap room. Details haven't fully emerged, but Nnamdi will be getting a five year LTC from the City of Brotherly Love.
Although I'm immensely disappointed that Cromartie will likely be resigned with the team at an enormously inflated contract, far outpacing what he deserves, I will say that the good thing to come out of this is that Mike T. worked us some fantastic cap room, and we can really improve our team now.
At the very least, Braylon fans can take solace that his chances of returning are highly inflated. Same with all of our other free agents.
