With Nnamdi Asomugha being cut from the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders getting torched 49-20 by Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles naturally the twitter buzz was bound to happen around Raider Nation. We asked Raiders Twitter if the Raiders should pursue the often maligned Asomugha who has fallen off since leaving the Coliseum in stops with the Eagles and Niners. With Asomugha being a Raider great the results were as divided as you would expect:
@JustBlogBaby Can we sign our collective memory of him and have that hologram play while Hayden learns the rest of the season?

@JustBlogBaby No that ship has sailed cut by two teams already what’s the point of signing him nostalgia?

@JustBlogBaby crazy talk. Hayden needs to cut his teeth on a season with less at stake in regards to payroll. Let the youngin learn now.

@JustBlogBaby No….he’s done…would be of no help

@JustBlogBaby I disagree too I think home meeting back up@with woodson I think he will resurrect his career

@JustBlogBaby he may be able to help, but I think the better move is to promote and develop Phillip Adams. He played well last year at time

@JustBlogBaby Signing him would be a panic move. Don’t think it’ll happen after one game. Albeit an atrocious one.

@JustBlogBaby I bet DA could find a place for him and squeeze some talent out of him. He needs to play press coverage

@JustBlogBaby I believe he has the potential to be a S in this league. My question is this… Is he a “winner”?
— Raider Bounty (@RaiderBounty) November 5, 2013
@JustBlogBaby Yes bring him back, start him at strong safety until tyvon branch is good to go. Cant be any worse the Ross

@JustBlogBaby why? We could use him still he wouldn’t cost much and would be a good vet to have in the locker room. Upgrade over backups

Contrary 2 my editor @JustBlogBaby I think bringing in asomugha just to see how he performs would be a good idea. Cant hurt. He’s has talent
— Sebastian Cosentino (@sebjbb) November 5, 2013
@JustBlogBaby No. We will take our lumps with what we have. He obviously isnt the same player he was. One bad game does not define us.

@JustBlogBaby I love Nnamidi I even have his Jersey from the Raiders but its a no. He just isnt as good as he use to be.

Should the Raiders bring back Asomugha? Let us know your opinion in the comments.
