    Since there are over 9000 threads on where he will go, throw down your ONE team that you think he will sign with in 2011 Free Agency. Winner(s) gets a rep from me, MSR not withstanding.


    I'm going to place my bet on the Philadelphia Eagles.

    They need some help in the secondary, and another year of explosive offense from McCoy and Vick, paired with an improved defense makes this team a serious favorite for the Super Bowl. I'm sure the Eagles would love to add him to the team, and I believe they will have the cap space to do it.

    I'm torn between the Eagles and Ravens.

    Going with the Eagles.

    Baltimore just picked Jimmy Smith in the first. Do you really think that they're looking to spend huge cash at the same position? Aso on that team would be unfair.

    I agree - I think he'll re-sign with the Raiders too (but you get credit for being first).

    He won't re-sign with the raiders.
    I think we have a good shot at him.

    Harbaugh said they were going to look at signing ASO.

    With ASO and Smith at the CB spots Baltimore would be the SB favorite. IMHO

    The can sign ASO with the $$$$ saved by letting Wilson/Carr/Landry walk.

    A secondary of ASO/Smith at CB and Leonhard/Reed at S would be the best in the league.

    Aso wants to go to a contender. He wants to go to an organization that is known for winning and exudes classiness on and off the field.

    I say he goes to Pittsburgh.

    I think there's a decent shot he re-signs with the Raiders regardless, but don't forget one of the sticking points in the CBA negotiation has to do with Right of First Refusal (ROFR) on free agents. Last I heard, the league wanted 3 ROFR's per team, and while I don't think there's a chance in the world they'll get that, all it would take is one per team to give the Raiders the absolute power to lock Nnamdi up again.

    The ROFR may be negotiated completely away (in fact, I hope it is), but if it isn't, it amounts to a second way (in addition to the Franchise tag) to guarantee the return of a free agent - regardless of years in the league.

    If it's included at all, it would likely work like the ability to match an offer on a RFA only without a draft pick involved. In the past, the Texans have matched offers for David Anderson (Broncos) and Vonta Leach (Giants), and made an offer on Kevin Walter that was not matched by the Bengals.

    Probably the only thing that would really need to be addressed would be a way to elimnate unmatchable offers similar to the one the Vikings made to Steve Hutchinson - unless that's already been done and I simply missed it.

    Houston, again.
    If I am Aso and they can foot the bill for my services, I would probably select Philly.
