    Just go down the list basically:

    Nnamdi, Ike Taylor, Jonathon Joseph.

    Not sure that Champ Bailey deserves to be ranked that high and I'm not sure we should go after him but I wouldn't mind him on the team.

    Champ re-signed with Denver right before the lockout.

    Kirwin doesn't seem to use the same yard stick on all players. Dunta being top 10 is just ridiculous. I'll be so glad when the lockout is over.

    lol @ dunta being a top 10 corner. he's not even the best corner on his team.

    brent grimes, brandon flowers, tramon williams, antoine winfield, joe hayden, leon hall >>>> dunta. and that's just being nice, there are definitely more ahead of him.

    I really really really want Nnamdi Asomugha for what he brings to this team from his play of the field, mentoring of other players, locker-room presence, high character, and work in the community.

    With that said, I'd be thrilled if we could get either Ike Taylor or Jonathan Joseph and be able to add Eric Weddle at S.

    I think the smart money would be 2 guys for the price of one (although that could be hard to get both of them to sign).

    Regardless, we need a veteran CB to come in that commands the #1 spot and I really do think we will get one.

    I have a hunch that this list does not belong in the 'Texans Talk' section...


    Edit: Yeah, no Texans in the Top 25. Go figure... :)

    If I'm Rick Smith, my priority list goes like this:

    Nnamdi Asomugha
    Jonathan Joseph
    Antonio Cromartie
    Richard Marshall
    Ike Taylor

    Dunta was the best we had here (after Aaron Glenn left), but top 10 ? No !

    That part cracked me up since Andre absolutely abused Finnegan getting a td and almost 100 yards both times we played the Tits.

    I'd agree... based on my Saints homerism alone :)

    there aren't many tandems in the NFL I'd put ahead of the Saints Greer and Porter.

    the issue with both of them have been injuries in the last couple of years, so I don't know if that's a factor or not. But Greer is a phenomenal CB.

    I'll just counter with Yaskinkas who covers the NFC South:
    gotta stay healthy though

    I <3 our secondary

    That injury to Dunte really sucked because he was going places before then I believe.

    Nnamdi is the best CB FA far and away and costs only money that we do have. He just needs to be convinced that our awesome offense will be supported by Phillps defense and our recent draft will help.

    Asomugha > Grand Canyon > other FA corners. It is all on McNair.

    No it isn't all on McNair. What if Aso wants $27 mil per year? I'll never get why people can't understand there has to be a cut off somewhere.

    And beyond that, Nnamdi is probably going to have different price levels for different clubs based on whether he wants to go there or not.

    Where is your cut off?

    Mine is the highest paid CB in the game for the 1st 3 yrs of his 5 yr contract. With escalator clauses to assure he stays the highest paid CB. This along with the highest paid signing bonus for a CB. Just compare it to whoever was the highest paid CB and give him 10% more.

    To get the best FA's you've got to pay the best. When you're a losing organization. Billionaire BoBBy will never do this.

    Remember the we're not going to do anything crazy thread? That thread tells you all you need to know about Billionaire BoBBy's mindset.

    Meanwhile I wonder how much concessions/tickets etc... will go up in the 2012/2013 season? Billionaire BoBBY has got to make up for losing $$$$ by not getting to raise prices for the 2011/2012 season somehow.

    And if 10% more than the next highest CB is not enough? How far up do you go? 2x? 3x?

    Eventually, you have to have a cut off.

    And by all accounts, we were about to make DUNTA one of the highest paid CBs in the league so we should be prepared to make Nnamdi a pretty lucrative offer.

    But if he doesn't want it, if he doesn't like us or someone on our team OR if he likes some other team's chances a lot better or something, he could turn us down even if we offer him 2x the next highest paid CB.

    Someone is going to pay him.

    The cutoff for aso should be the highest possible price that the team is reasonably capable of spending.

    What that amount is going to be I have no idea.

    But I do know that whatever some other team is willing to pay I'm pretty sure we could at least match it.

    All of this is subject to him actually wanting to come here though.
