I really haven't seen jack crap about JJ signing with us.

rotoworld:

Texans agreed to terms with CB Johnathan Joseph on a five-year, $48.75 million contract, including a $12.5 million signing bonus.
Joseph cashes in with $23.5 million guaranteed. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jets are now in the driver's seat for Nnamdi Asomugha. The Texans doggedly pursued both of the market's top cornerbacks, and did well to win one of the sweepstakes to shore up what was arguably the league's worst secondary in 2010. Joseph is still in his prime at age 27, has flashed shut-down potential in Cincinnati and has ball skills at least on par with Asomugha's. Coordinator Wade Phillips has turned defenses around quickly in the past, and he just landed a key piece to make it happen in Houston.

ESPN:

The Texans got their second secondary addition in two days, adding Chicago free-agent safety Danieal Manning with a four-year, $20 million deal that includes $9 million guaranteed, according to Mark Berman.

With corner Johnathan Joseph and Manning now part of a secondary that allowed 267.5 passing yards a game in 2010, things should settle down substantially on the back end in a new 3-4 scheme.

Nnamdi deal: 5 yrs, 60 million, 25m gtd.

Sheeeeeeet, that's cheap compared to what the Texans offered.

Do we know what the Texans offered? I'd love to find that out...

The $12million/year looks (relatively!) cheap to me, also. It's at the low end of all the numbers I heard being thrown around. It's also not all that much more than we ended up paying for Joseph ($9.75M/yr), and is less than what we're paying Joseph+Manning ($14.75M/yr). I wonder if Aso ended up losing money by waiting too long to decide...

The Eagles add Asomugha, Young, DRC, Johnny Lee Higgins, Donald Lee, Jason Babin, and a 2nd round pick in last 72 hours.

I've been out of the loop today on the Nnamdi news, but I am glad to hear that he didn't end up with the Jets.

Reports were 12-15 million was being offered by the Texans, and the Jets were offering the same deal as Revis, which was 11.5 million a year. Reports only, but probably near the truth. I think it's safe to say we were offering closer to 14 million a year over 5 years.

I can tell you with certainty that it was a real possibility and that the interest was mutual.


I just wonder at what point that talks broke down .... I doubt now , looking at 5 years $60m that is was just about the total amount but the fact that the Texans could strike a lesser deal with JJ and add Manning in the process.

As good as Aso is he only plays a single position. I think the Texans set their sites on a top level CB and S. They probably had Aso as the #1 and JJ as the #2 CB and Weddle as the #1 Safety and Manning as the #2.

So they started with Weddle and Aso. Weddle turned down their offer to stay there. So the Texans knew they had to move on Manning and Aso was taking his own sweet time. So for an extra 8.75 total (7.5 in guaranteed cash) they got the second best Safety and second best CB. Not a bad deal, especially considering Weddle signed for twice what we signed Manning for. Weddle isn't twice as good as Manning.

Dont yet know what they offered Namdi .... but Im sure we'll find out eventually.

Yeah, I thought he would end up getting around $14 or 15 million per year. I'm guessing the Texans offered him more than $12 million so my guess would be that Nnamdi didn't have all that much interest in coming here. Make's Rick Smith's signing of Joseph even better.

Agreed! So glad we chose the path we did, what a strange strange disaster. I like how the Jets restructured everybody and their brother to afford him, meaning now all their cap is 11.5 million below the cap....there's no turning that back in.

Yeah, now it sucks that they can afford to grab Cullen Jenkins, Many Lawson, and any other pass rusher that might be out there.

Aso's a rich man. I'm sure money is important, but it isn't everything.


Someone on this board said something about Aso being a possible Hall-of-Famer.

It ain't going to happen if he don't get on a team that starts winning.

If he had to choose between us & the Jets, that's a tough decision. You'd lean towards the Jets, but you have to wonder how long that's going to last. The Texans look like they're on the way up, but they've been looking that way for the last 4 years.

Dallas....... same as the Jets. Eagles....... now we're talking. Andy Reid's been there for what, a decade? That F.O. how long? They do things a certain way & have been for a long, long time, & it works for the most part.

We could offer him $15 million, Jets offer $11.5 million & he's got the Jets in the lead.

The Eagles offer $12.5 million, plus a real chance at immortality. It's a no-brainer.

plus he's out of the AFC, so :fans::fans:

Depends on how you look at it.

Everyone knew we were going to throw big money at him. The Jets were the only ones with the gnads to put their "clout" against our green.

As soon as we bowed out, Dallas jumps in the race, the Eagles jumps in the race.

He was never coming to Houston, he just wanted us to get the money up. But when we were flashing our wallet, the only other contender was the Jets with a very good reason to keep the number at $11.4

We bow out, & Aso signs for $12.5 he made $1.1 because we dropped out.

So it depends on how you look at it.

Ok here is what happened.

I was listening to radio and the guys here in SA had a guy in training camp and they mentioned that Stephen and Jerry Jones pulled Rob Ryan out of an active practice to talk to someone on the phone. After that Stephen jones got back on the phone and after a while got off and him and old man started fist bumping and shaking hands with Garett. Meanwhile, we hear Jets are out on update and then announcers say Jets are out and that means Dallas got him they are celebrating on air that Cowboys got Namdi and then boom Sc Update and whammo Eagles get Namdi.I got out of car before I heard it but I saw it flash on my phone as I walk into Chuck E. Cheese .

Dont believe the Dallas spin that they withdrew...Eagles flat out stole Namdi from them..Jerry and his spawn dont fist bump and clap hands if the Eagles got him...i would have killed to see Jerry's face when he realized he got done by a rival.

I love that Cowboys and Jets fans are crushed.

As a Cowboy fan I can honestly say I'm not crushed. the rush for the hours today were fun but a large majority on the Cowboy board and talking to fans the last few months thought we wouldn't get him. They thought JJ would stick with Jenkins, Scandrick and resign Newman. Aso was a bonus if it happened. In a thread Monday I put their chances at 0% because of needing to resign Free. From what I read Dallas was never even really a challenge and didn't care that they were a smoke screen. They didn't have near the cash. though I read this

http://www.foxsportssouthwest.com/07/29/11/Cowboys-lose-Asomugha-sweepstakes-keep-D/landing_cowboys.html?blockID=542743&feedID=3742

Jerry Jones stood on the sideline watching the Dallas Cowboys practice Friday, anxious to find out if he'd struck free-agent gold and landed Nnamdi Asomugha.

The Cowboys made a strong pitch for this year's most coveted free agent and felt good about their chances. At one point, Jones and his son, vice president Stephen Jones, finished a phone call and shared a fist bump. Another time, they called defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to the sideline, handing him a phone so he could talk -- presumably to Asomugha, his former protege in Oakland.

But when practice ended, the Cowboys learned they didn't get their man. Worse still for them, Asomugha went to division rival Philadelphia.

Jones was doing a radio interview with the team's flagship station at the time, and had a feeling things didn't go his way. He said he would be disappointed if that was the case, although his response probably was a lot stronger once he found out for sure.

"We had an opportunity, we acted on it -- and, believe me, we firmly acted on it, `til my eyes watered," Jones told 105.3 The Fan.

He probably saw his window of opportunity closing down as teams withdrew from the bidding war. The Eagles were a rumored landing spot weeks ago I do believe.

From the article:

He said he spurned more money elsewhere because he believed the Eagles gave him the best chance to win a Super Bowl.

"Spurned" may be used as some sort of journalistic flair here, nevertheless I am glad Smith pulled the trigger on the J.Joseph & Manning instead of waiting.

I'm not worried as much about the Eagles getting Aso as much as the Cowboys not addressing needs. We are still sitting here and they are still looking safety and DE...needs from the start. The Eagles have always been tough but if Dallas runs effectively..their issue the last few years...then Aso won't be as much of a factor. Every year the NFC East seems to have a heavy fave and every year it is turned upside down so it will be interesting. I'm more interested in how garrett does overall.
