Already one former Raider defensive back is going to be available for a potential East Bay reunion with Charles Woodson being released by Green Bay. Now there could be another as the Philadelphia Eagles are mulling what to do with Nnamdi Asomugha and his phat contract.
Guaranteed to earn $4-million in 2013 Nnamdi has a $15-million cap figure if he remains in Philly. Much like Carson Palmer with the Raiders, the Eagles are going to ask Aso to take a pay cut. If that conversation doesn’t go well then Nnamdi could go back on the open market.
Even though his play has declined since leaving Oakland there is no doubt Asomugha would be a massive upgrade for the Raiders. But much like Woodson it would pretty much a longshot to make a Raider reunion a reality.
Then there is also the issue of Reggie McKenzie building for the future. Inking veteran players would help provide valuable leadership and experience but ultimately isn’t cap friendly or effective in getting younger players more reps. But since it is the offseason there is no shame in speculating. As of now Aso is still an Eagle and the Raiders still don’t have the cap space to pursue top tier free agents.
