Asomugha asked to restructure contract, or be released


Recommended Posts

He went from an almost exclusive press-man scheme in Oakland to a much more off-man and zone scheme in Philly, with NO safety help over top. That said, I'd actually be on board with signing Nnamdi if he comes at a decent price, which he should given the past few years. I think with our scheme and solid safety play from Bethea (and potentially whoever else we bring in), he could be a solid CB again. I trust Grigs to bring in the right guys, so we'll see what happens..

I didn't watch much of the Eagles this last season, but according to the fans on their forums, they ran more man coverage the last half of the season and Nnamdi was still getting roasted constantly. They are practically begging the team to release him so they can get a better player and not have the big cap hit. Nnamdi isn't the same guy as he was a few yrs. ago IMO and I don't want him here. I think the whole "he didn't fit the zone scheme" is nonsense IMO. A really good man corner should be an excellent zone corner IMO.

I am so happy you saved me time from posting a paragraph haha! I couldn't agree more, Nnamdi could and should thrive if inserted back into a predominantly man scheme. The price tag has to be right though, as extending Vontae is going to be a big priority during or after this year (I really, REALLY don't want to risk losing him because we give a boatload of cash to a different corner this year).

Completely agree.

    • I only know thanks to the Harry Potter series. 
    • I don't think he was at the combine or had a pro day. IIRC, when we picked him up, I researched him a bit. No 40 found, but I did find a track time that would likely put him around 4.4ish. He's fast, but don't think he's electric 4.3s though. At his small size, he better be fast lol. 
    • Point is, Rogers was Luck's #2, and you want to talk about stagnant lol. No, Rogers is not a world beater, but he beat a lot better when he had Luck lol. JB couldn't even find him. Each year, 18, 19, and 20, the WR core has suffered from injury. You keep harping on leg injury. The topic is the first six games. JB had duds in the first 6 games pre-injury, as did Luck and Rivers. As far a Ballard goes, WR was stagnant in 2018 when Luck was here. Grant? Inman? Rogers? None of those guys are doing much now. Not saying JB wasn't the best option. He was really the only option though. But bottom line, he's just not that good, even pre-injury. If you want to ignore his struggles with reads, progressions, time to throw, touch, accuracy, etc., that's fine.
    • We lost Devin Funchess last season. Parris Campbell was injured. So I’m glad you acknowledge the fact this team on offense was injured. Yeah Chester Rogers the world beater who still on this team... You’re nuts thinking JB had weapons to work with last season. Nuts for even bringing Rogers into this discussion.  I wonder why Ballard made it a mission to add pieces to the offense during the draft. He know we were stagnant on offense. Also again JB was playing through a leg injury last season. Impossible to step into his throws. He was still our best option at QB in 2019. 
    • Does anyone know how fast he is? He could be a nice compliment of speed on offense until Campbell returns.
