The Newark Star-Ledger confirms the Jets have "reached out" to free agent Nnamdi Asomugha.
This comes on the heels of an earlier report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Jets plan to "make a run at" Asomugha to pair him with Darrelle Revis. Multiple reports suggest Asomugha is willing to leave money on the table to sign with playoff contender, and Rex Ryan's squad fits the bill. Asomugha also has designs on an acting career, which may give the Jets yet another edge

Aso has been nothing short of a model citizen in an organization known for showboats, malcontents and rebels without a clue. His down side is miniscule as it is. Compare it to his upside and it's a no-brainer. There is simply no other player in the NFL, short of Revis, that could impact our team as much as Aso. I'm including any QB's you want to throw in, also.
Did you miss the part about the league voiding the contract or are you ignoring that bit? This isn't the NBA with a luxury tax penalty, it's the NFL with the same hard cap it has had for some 20 years now. If your team is pushed above the cap by signing a player, the league will not approve it and he will never join the team until you lose some salary.

I still dont get how the Jets can sign him, even for a tad less than what is expected, with all their own FA's they have to sign. Are they going to completely compromise their offense for ONE CB?

I also find it very hard to believe the Jets could sign him. I think Baltimore and Philly have better shots, although I don't think either team wants him too bad.

The other thing to consider is the Jets had trouble generating a pass rush without blitzing. That was when they had Ellis. If they bank on rooks and lower level FAs to supply the pass rush, not even a duo of Nmandi and Revis will save them from teams exploiting holes in the middle of the field.

I'm in wishful/hopeful thinking mode and ignored that little clause for the purpose of my fantasy. Don't you judge me.

/END THREAD!

Take that same money and get two competent players. That's not to say that I wouldn't love to score Aso, but he's already stated (or his agent) that he would take less money to be with a contender.... The Texans, as much as I hate to admit aren't that team....

Rex is of the "defense wins championships" mentality. Their defense was already one of the best in the league, you add Nnamdi and I don't think anyone puts over 10 points a game on them. I could be wrong, but where are you gonna throw? It would be hard to beat 2 shut down corners.

Don't think that Jets thing means much. Just more speculation. Plus, the Jets still need to sign Holmes and Edwards. The Texans' biggest competition is the Ravens, IMO. Since Houston is in a weaker division, and Nnamdi's position is our biggest weakness (plus one of his good friends is already on the team), maybe he'll come here. There is some hope.

That and Baltimore plans to re-sign their guys, might not want to commit that much to the CB spot.

The more I think about it, the more I think something is afoot.

1) Aso gives a list of teams to his agent he would like to play for, Houston being one.
2) Lots of talk that Houston would go after him fast and quick. Most insiders were saying the Texans were going to sign him. Mike Francessa said last week it "was the worst kept secret in the NFL" that Aso was gong to Houston. Make him a good offer today.
3) Agent leaks news that the Jets are interested, even though no one can expalin how they can afford it. Use these rumors get Houston to sweeten the deal just a tad more.

You take away Holmes and they might not score 10 points on anyone all year either...
