    Just read on Raider forums that Nnamdi Asomugha might be up for a trade. So far, they are just rumors, although earlier this video was released:

    http://msn.foxsports.com/video?vid=54be0c79-98ee-4df0-b69e-b0476611a90e

    Not sure what to make of this. Its odd, but I wouldn't be disappointed at all if Nnamdi was traded. He'd have a good chance to win a ring at almost any other team. Also, the players/picks we could receive by trading him may help turn this dysfunctional franchise around. Its a win-win...and as much as I wished Aso could win a ring in the silver & black...its seeming less likely as each week passes.


    What are you guys thoughts on this? Would you want the Texans to go after Nnamdi?

    Nope, price would be too high for just one player. We need more than that.

    His contract with the Raiders (from wikipedia...but I am fairly sure it is accurate)

    A team would need to be in dire need of a playmaker on D to consider taking that contract...maybe it could be restructured...as crazy as it may seem to you, from what I know from Nnamdi over the years...he may very well do it. He offered to restructure his contract if DeAngelo Hall could stay...so yeah, anything is possible with Aso.

    Quick answer: Yes. He's the best corner in the league, and the Texans have had a weak secondary. He instantly makes this team better.

    I would trade next year's 1st Rounder for Aso in a heartbeat. A price higher than that would have to be thought out long and hard.

    I would maybe go for a 1st Rounder in 2010 draft and a 4th Rounder in 2011 that would turn into a 3rd Rounder if the Texans made the playoffs this year or next.

    I am sure the Raiders are asking for a 1st and a 2nd though.

    Aso has a rep that may even be greater then his actual ability. Not that that is a bad thing though, no QB willingly wants to throw the ball his way. I can guarantee that he will be a HoFer when he's done...and if the Texans do land him...wow...he may be all you guys need to finally get things going.

    I don't follow the Texans nearly as much as you guys do, but from what I do know, your D gives up way too many points. With Aso, you guys may finally be able to avoid those close games which end up in a shoot-out (i.e. the Titans game).

    We probably would never think about it or even get a chance at him...but if we could trade him for Dunta, plus picks (1st or 2nd this year plus 2nd or 3rd the next?) AND have the ability to restructure Aso's contract, it might be a win-win for both teams in terms of us having a final answer for Dunta.

    Hell with Al, he'd probably trade him to the Pats for a 4th :gun:

    Man you guys are crazy. I would trade a 1st and a 3rd and never look back. The guy is legit and shutdown corners are one of the hardest things to find in this league.

    The best deal though would be Dunta and a 1st. THAT would be awesome.

    You talking about Bowie, the person we got with the 4th rd pick? Well...he's not on the Raiders anymore...so in a sense, the Raiders gave away Moss for free :choke:.

    He did have a 4.36 40 time though...

    You'd have to give up Andre Johnson to get Nnamdi Asomugha.

    So how about we close this thread right now.

    Wouldn't matter if we did get AJ, not like we have a QB that could throw the ball to him. From what I gather, Al has finally realized that he needs to stop drafing projects and needs to get NFL ready players...but I am guessing instead of draft picks, Davis will ask for players instead. If Davis was smart, he'd shop for a QB. Keyword...IF...

    Call me crazy but I'd consider giving up Schaub for Aso.

    You're crazy...:)


    Seriously though, who would QB this team? Gross-man lol. By the time we find and develop another legit starting QB, both AJ and our newly acquired Aso would be on decline or ready to leave.

    Save the picks/players and draft a CB in the first round..(either that or offer that 1st round pick + a third for Aso...I wouldn't give up our starting QB though)..well, we'll probably take a safety round one, but who knows with Dunta most likely gone at the end of the season.

    Absolutely must be considered. A straight up swap no but we could consider a package deal. We have to worry about resigning Schaub after this season. Picking up option or whatever it exactly was.

    Al Davis is stupid, not retarded.

    Schaub, Demeco, and a 1st rounder for Nnamdi,
