Eagles releasing Asomugha today.

He's been below average the last two years, and I heard they moved him back to man coverage a majority of the time this year and it still didn't help. Going to Philly killed his reputation.

Anyways, yeah we played Oakland in 2008 and Aso held Smitty to a catch for 9 yards...dude can ball

To be fair, Jake Delhomme was the starting quarterback of a playoff team then. That was a long time ago and a lot can change.

Smitty beat him a few times that game, Jake just couldn't get it to him.

I don't think that we have the cap space to sign Asomugha or Revis, heck we may not be able to keep Gamble...

Remember the 49ers are after Revis right now. Could you imagian how unstoppable the 49ers would be on D if they got Revis and signed Asomugha. The NFC would be doomed. LOL

You thinking they'd use Asomugha as a nickel back?

He will get a healthy contract ... far above vet minimum.

Wishful thinking though!

Id give up to 3 million and year and let him play to his strengths aka one side of the field, if gamble restructures and we hold on to him for a year or two would be a pretty dman good secondary. Maybe a draft pick or someone on the roster like Thomas could step into the Nickle if we don't re-sign munnerlyn.

No we just don't have any money. We are the most cash strapped team in the NFL. That's what happens when you pay a 2-14 team like they are a 15-1 team.

Although it may be true that at the moment we are still over the cap. Barely. We still have options to not only get under, but far enough under to do some deals. The question becomes, are we a team that players want to play for?

We are going to have some money, but probably not enough to compete with some teams. But, do we need to sign every vet that hits the open market? We are still trying to figure out who we are. So we don't even know who we need.

Redoing a couple of contracts should give us some money to play with. We will just have to be picky on who we throw that money at. Personally, I trust Gettlemen to do what he can to make us better. And I don't believe he will throw money at just any FA. He will pick and choose carefully. It has been proven that bringing in a bunch of FAs does not guarantee anything.

My giddy tells me things are not as dire as most folks believe. So I am going to go with that.

With the way this offseason is shaping up. Maybe 3mil could get the job done. He has already made a poo ton of money. Maybe he will play for less knowing he may not get much more anywhere else. This is my thinking anywho. How much does money mean to some of these guys? Some have made enough to allow them to pick where they want to play. And maybe we are a team he would take less to play for.
