We gotta find a way to trade for Asante, if he's not too expensive.

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...

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 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.

Absolutely he did .... When the Texans moved on and signed Joseph he lost considerable leverage.

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

The guaranteed money seems low .... His agent didnt get him the best deal but he did get him with a contender.

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.
