San Francisco 49ers Cut Nnamdi Asomugha
Via NBC Sports reports:
The 49ers had to make some decisions when a raft of injured players starting making their way back.
And ask expected, they swapped out one veteran corner for another.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the 49ers will release cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha when they activate cornerback Eric Wright.
It’s no surprise, as Asomugha never really made an impression there, and was replaced by younger players with more upside.
It seems like forever ago when Asomugha left the Raiders for the Eagles and a gigantic free agent contract (it was March 2011). Since then, his play has fallen off sharply, and now two teams have decided he’s not worth having around, at any price.
Has any player fallen faster than Nnamdi Asomugha?? Maybe Olivia Pope can get him a new job….
