Jets are more than $10 million UNDER salary cap, according to two NFL capologists. Might make the Jets the favorite to land Nnamdi Asomugha.
Schefter adds on SportsCenter Jets are the favorite, its a matter of them "convincing" him to play there.

The problem for Houston is that Jets are now reportedly nearly $10 million under the cap -- and that's before they restructure contracts. It's going to be hard to pry Asomugha away from Broadway and coach Rex Ryan if they can't even offer the most money. The Texans may be better off turning their attention to free agent Johnathan Joseph.

Well if that's the case, here's me making my contribution. Just got off work, got some eggs, bacon, and coffee, and Sportscenter on while this topic refreshes every few minutes. Let's get this done.

I'm pretty much convinced that if Nnamdi was gonna be a Jet, he would be one by now.

Gotta say, though, if Jets have more room than Texans we need a "capologist" transplant.

So if this article is correct Weddle was ready to sign with us and the Chargers had to over extend to keep him. Were we going after Weddle and Aso?
Many times I hear John say on radio 610 "Texans up against the cap. What starters do they cut to go after Asomugha?" Well, Mr. McClain so far no starter has been cut. I have advocated that borderline players could be cut + salary adjustments would do it. At least he seems to be coming off the "Absolutely no way!" mantra.
What I guaranttee he (and others on this MB) will do if Aso is not a Texan; "see I told you absolutely no way."

Just the opposite though...If the jets are already reportedly under 10 million, it probably spells the end for some of their other key guys. Braylon Edwards has already been tweeting that he wants to be a jet but apparently the feeling "isn't mutual"..We also know they have to resign David Harris & it probably also means that Cromartie is outta there as well.

On a side note, what does this really say about how Ryan feels about everyone's favorite draft pick from just 2 years ago in Kyle Wilson?

Disagree completely. If they are 10 million under and want to make sure he is happy they can cut some more salary or restructure some guys and promise him more. From what I've read with the new CBA you can easily make his 2011 number very cap friendly and then give him what he wants other years.

Default Re: The Nnamdi Asomugha Thread

If my "first choice" is declaring that they have the room, that they're highly interested, that they're gonna make it work, blah blah, then why would I waste time with the other teams? If the Jets fit perfectly, then it would have happened. Especially for Nnamdi, who's generally a no-nonsense guy.

I think his using the JETS to drive up the price for Houston and other teams with more money to throw at him.

The same reason you stated in your last paragraph..."Houston and the 49ers are really coming hard..." Then the Jets add another million or 2 because they decide to restructure someone. You can play with the money all day and make the years and money fit.

Would be a smart thing for him to do. Once he knows that the Texans are desperately wanting him, his agent is probably like "let's milk this... because we can." Leak to the media that you really like New York, that you want to form a great tandem with Revis, that you really like Rex Ryan, that you want to play for a winner. Those are all probably truths and/or at least very believable for a team like us to say "Oh sh*t", here's another million per year.
