Well, I don’t think anyone saw this one coming…. But it appears that the Philadelphia Eagles have won the Nnamdi Asomugha sweepstakes. To the tune of 5 years and 60 million dollars.
It had been reported that a third mystery team had been poking around at Asomugha and it is now apparent that the team was the Eagles, who out waited the Jets and the Cowboys. As good as Asomugha is, it is slightly confusing as to why a team with Asante Samuels and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie at cornerback already would sign him under seemingly no pressure.
According to Adam Schefter, Asomugha feels Philadelphia gives him the best chance to win a super bowl in the immediate.
