the only thing that rules out asomugha imo will be his salary. while many think its possible, i dont think team chemistry could handle the massive discrepancy in what our current players are making vs. what, 18mil per?
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
99.9% guaranteed Nnamdi will be a Buc when/ if the season starts (pretty reliable source). He loves Rah and the direction the team is going. Just gotta hope the Glazers willgive up the coin. Which I think they'll pay to add a high character shut down corner. It's a no brainer.

There has to be concern giving any 30 year old player a long term contract with a big base salary and huge signing bonus. It's the kind of deal that could haunt a franchise in the Buc's position. 2/3 years from now having to let go young player(s) going into their second contract because we have a 32/33 year old corner taking up 10% (or more) of the cap space. It's hard to believe that Aso will be a premier corner for more then another 2/3 years, but with a contract like the one he's going to get the team will be chained to him for likely 4/5 seasons.That said, it players like him don't often come available in Free Agency. One of the top players at his position, still at the pinacle of his career, with 0 character concerns. Probably why some feel this could turn into a crazy bidding war. I would definitely take him (and the risks) if he could be had at top cb $. Would pass if it turns into a "setting a new bar" kind of contract (which I think it will). Also would much rather see the Bucs add 3/4 legitimate starting caliber pieces in the 3-5 mil per season range then just splash for Nnamdi and call it a wrap.
