Pro Football Talk has dug up multiple sources who say the Jets might be going hard at Nnamdi Asomugha.

"I keep hearing from well placed relible NFL sources that this Jet talk and Nmandi Asomugha is serious and I mean serious," Lombardi wrote on Twitter.

A report from Mlive.com’s Tom Kowalski echoed the sentiment.  Kowalski is a Lions beat writer, so it’s possible Detroit has heard that Asomugha is set on exploring his options in New York before entertaining other ideas.

I'm still trying to not get my hopes too high. Getting him and having the two best cornerbacks in the league would just be unreal.
