Default Raiders likely to franchise Nnamdi Asomugha

Well, there goes our chance at him in the offseason....

http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/2008/...amdi-asomugha/

Quote:
Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Oakland Raiders are expected to put the franchise tag on cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who otherwise would become an unrestricted free agent at the end of this month.

For 2008, the franchise tender for cornerbacks is $9.465 million, meaning that if he wanted to, the 26-year-old Asomugha could sign the franchise offer, pocket the $9 mil, and then be a free agent again (or get a 20% pay raise) a year from now.

More likely, though, Asomugha is likely to enter into negotiations on a long-term contract extension with the team. There's no reason that Asomugha shouldn't feel entitled to a contract as valuable as the eight-year, $80 million deal Nate Clements got to sign with the 49ers last year.

But will Raiders owner Al Davis sign off on such a deal? Last year he dragged his feet for a long time on the contract offer to No. 1 overall draft pick JaMarcus Russell, and he may do the same again this year. That means we might see a lengthy holdout for Asomugha.

pretty much a no-brainer. when the smoke clears, I bet Samuel is the only top flight guy that hits the FA....he is going to get paid, that is for sure. Anyone hear of any early suitors for Samuel?

Trufant aint going anywhere either. The Seahawks could easily franchise him as well. One thing is for sure, Paul Allen aint afraid to spend money just look at how much he is paying Holmgren.

Per Philadelphia talk radio and Eagles Message Board, the New York Jets and the Eagles are suppose to be very interested in Samuel. Both are right on things about one per cent of the time.
