I think this was the plan BEFORE the lockout, Scahub and AJ both agreed for a restructuring to sign Aso. We know AJ was openly recruiting Namdi and I remember an interview where Schaub stated he was doing the same.

Why on earth has EVERY insider, for the entire summer, keep saying the Texans were going to sign Aso?

I don't know what it is and I'm too lazy to dig it up right now, but it does send a good message of leadership and selflessness.

What if Nnamdi takes less $$$ to play for the Jets? Joseph could become the highest paid CB in free agency. I hope the Texans have a plan B, because Asomugha to the Jets sounds real.

This kind of deal with Texans player restructuring to bring in a Super Star will pump up fan base. I will do a double back flip...well maybe I'll just get up off sofa really quick and hope I don't faint, but that is about as good as I can do.

I really don't think Nnamdi to the Jets has any legs. It all started with Mortenson on Mike & Mike. Greeny has talked up the Jets finding a way to get Aso and specifically asked how it would be done. Mort said that Nnamdi would like to act after his career and New York would certainly help with that and said that Nnamdi would have to take a pay cut. That took off like wild fire.

There have been reports that the Jets have reached out to Cromartie today and are currently battling with Buffalo for Drayton Florence's services. It's also worth noting that they have contacted Holmes as well.

Also, it would still make sense for all the other CBs to wait, even if Nnamdi takes a discount, because everyone else that missed out could start battling for them.

I don't know, but until he signs with Houston I will take the "Aso wants to be a Jet" rumors at face value.

I don't see how the jets could afford that much of the salary cap at 2 of the same position. I get it, corners are high value players. But Revis @ 11mil, Aso @ 15mil? Thats like 20% of the entire salary cap. Just doesn't seem plausible.

From Solomon's most recent Chrapical article


Quote:
In this week’s issue of Sports Illustrated, which hits newsstands on Friday, SI’s Peter King picks his top 50 NFL free agent, and predicts where they will sign.

King has Raiders’ cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha as the top guy on the board. And he predicts Asomugha will land with … the Texans.

King, who Texans GM Rick Smith subbed to write a column for a couple weeks ago, also has the Texans signing Eagles’ safety Quintin Mikell (No. 32) and Browns’ Abram Elam during this frenzied free agent signing period that will be unlike anything the NFL has ever seen.

Everyone is trying to get the upper hand in who goes where, and it is going to be fun keeping track of what happens.

Regardless of what you may have heard from crazy yappers on the radio, I can say with certainty that Nnamdi Asomugha has Houston on his list of teams for which he is interested in playing. In fact, he likes the city very much and is generally impressed with the organization.

Yeah, but Sanchez is willing to rework his contract...That means more for teams in NYC than hamlets like Houston.

Yep. If it got out today that Aso had an agreement with the Texans someone would accuse them of dealing during the lockout.
