From what I heard on Sirius NFL, it was an offer to restructure precisely to resign WR FA's, which are several and at least one is potentially season breaking. If the J-E-T-S JetsJetsJets lose Holmes, who will Sanchez throw to? Edwards? There goes the completion %.

Movie career or not, I'm having a hard time believing the NY Jets can or would want to sign Aso with the new cap. If he just took the same contact as Darrelle Revis he would cost an equal 16.5 million dollars per year. Adding the two cornerbacks up you get, 33 Million per year on a cap of $123M = 26.8% of the entire teams salary.

Even if Nnamdi gave a huge "home team" discount and played for 10 million per year, that's still 21.5% of the entire teams cap accounting for 2 out of 53 active roster spots.

I have a feeling someone is playing a joke on the media.

Roto world but I am puzzled about that as we speak. As you say he got $10m 2010 leaving $18 for 2011 & 2012 or $9m each remaining year. That also fits with re-structuring a bit more.

Also, cannot find any bonus involved wuith the 3 year extension just $28 million with $10m in 2010.

I think there are teams we should be more worried about than the Jets in our competition for Aso.

My argument would be that "find a way" teams/people magically do find blood in their turnips.

I just can't see Asomugha coming here, not if he's serious about winning. Sure, the Texans MIGHT be a good team with him in the secondary, but if he goes to a team like the Jets or Ravens he's going to a bonafide contender as well as to a team that has shown what it takes to win. I hope I'm wrong though.

Some guy who sounds like Michael Wilbon from PTI on a show called "Put Up Your Dukes" (not to be confused with the NFL Network show) was on 97.5 FM and he was talking about the impact signing Namadi would have on this team.

He basically said that by getting Namadi, the management shows the team that they are serious about getting players who can help this team out and I can't think of a better way to inspire this team then to get guys who can play at a real high level.

We sign players that are solid but we never make a splash. Namadi would be a splash and the Texans would be front and center of the media. Not only does signing him give us a positive vibe but it can inspire Kareem Jackson and the like to look up at the King of Shutdown CBs.

Namadi can also be a coach on the field and do what coach's can't during a game. He is a leader who can command the DBs and make sure players are in position.

Just like Schaub is the leader of our offense, Namadi can be the leader of the DBs, Ryans or Cushing can lead the LBs, and Mario can lead the DEs.


So McNair do whatever you have to. I will BUY season tickets if it makes it that much easier for the Texans to sign the guy.


WE NEED HIM BADLY!!!

I am been looking around as well, but can't find two "sources" to help confirm.

If you look at Phillip's record for improving defenses and consider the fact that we have a top 4 offense, what do you base your argument on? If the J-E-T-S sign Aso, they lose their entinre WR corps. Winning or losing 10-9 or 9-10 is not going to win fans in NYC.

The Cowboys will not release CB Terence Newman, according to a team source. The high-priced player was a potential salary-cap casualty, and his deal still could be reworked, but he wasn’t among the players informed Tuesday that he would be released by the team.
Nope.

Dallas didn't cut him, at least not yet. Looks like they want to keep, maybe restructure his deal.
