Philadelphia Eagles Swoop in and Win the Nnamdi Asomugha Sweepstakes

The Jets didn't get him.  Dallas celebrated.  But they didn't get him either.  Philadelphia signed CB Nnamdi Asomugha for around $12 million a year.  Although Gang Green restructured some contracts they still couldn't give the shutdown corner the money he wanted.

Earlier in the week, there were reports that Nnamdi's preferred team couldn't afford him.  Apparently, the Rex effect wasn't enough.

Adam Schefter tweeted the numbers:

Nnamdi deal: 5 yrs, 60 million, 25m gtd.

But at least Nnamdi Watch is over.  And we have freed up some more cap space by restructuring some contracts.  Now can we get CB Antonio Cromartie and WR Braylon Edwards back?
