    I didnt see this posted on here.

    Per Rotoworld and ESPN:

    SPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Nnamdi Asomugha's contract has voided, making him an unrestricted free agent.

    Asomugha's contract contained a complicated clause that essentially voided the contract if the star cornerback failed to achieve certain incentives. The clause also does not allow the Raiders to slap him with the franchise tag. He'll enter free agency as the biggest name defensive player on the market. Jan. 9 - 11:27 am et


    Based on our record with big name players we wont be signing him. But whoever does will be paying alot for him.

    He will require another massive contract, I doubt we will go for him. I sure as heck hope we do go for it though.

    This decision is way over Rick Smith's head.

    How an NFL team could allow a contract stipulation such as this is mind-numbing. To lose an asset such as Asomugha for nothing is the height of incompetence.

    You can bet your bippy Jerry Jones will be in line for Nnamdi. Danny Snyder, too. If the Texans are going to be in the mix, they must be prepared to breakout the big buck$.

    Should we expect anything less from Al Davis, I sometimes wonder what he's smoking? :thinking:

    Damn, if there was a time for Bob and Rick to gain some confidence from the fans...

    That being said, it probably won't happen for us. I sure hope they do make it happen though!
