Since obviously the Eagles would like another CB to pair with Asante Samuel -- we already (kind of) debunked the rumor of Philadelphia going after Arizona’s Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie -- there also have been whispers that Philadelphia is stalking former Raiders and current free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha.
Not true, says CBSSports.com’s Clark Judge.
Judge originally wrote June 7 that league sources told him that the club had little interest in going after Asomugha, one of the most high-profile (and most expensive) cornerbacks in the league.
Judge’s reasoning: Asomugha is too limited (he’s a press CB who plays only on the right side of the line), he’d be way too expensive and he might be a touch too old for Philadelphia’s taste.
Still, some are saying it’s a move the Eagles could make.
Again, Judge says it's not likely. He’s talked to sources today that continue to reiterate the Eagles don't have much interest in Asomugha. So, there you have it.
