I was hoping that they would restructure his contract. Now if they let DRC go then our secondary becomes horrid and there is an immediate need that needs to be addressed in either free agency or the draft or maybe both?


Thoughts

Where could he end up?

UPDATE 10:48: And, of course, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Asomugha won’t be released today

Even though I'm sure it will happen, I'm skeptical of EVERYTHING Eskin reports, I'm currently dropping something in the toilet as reliable as he is...

Another star that will be a beast once he goes to another team that uses him properly.

Nnamdi knows he won't get near the amount of money in free agency from another team. I wonder if he really doesn't like Philadelphia or his teammates.

News flash - it already was. Wink

I think it's best to move on. This release clears up $11.3M in cap space, while Nnamdi gets $4M guaranteed in the split.

If true, which we've all speculated it would be, best wishes to him moving forward.

I think we sign one in FA, and draft one in the first two rounds.

TRUE! I bet we make a run at Sean Smith as some reports suggest. The Eagles are really quiet this year tho so anything could happen. I would be disappointed if we picked up Dee Millner because I would rather address Linebacker or OL with our first pick

This, DRC was absolute poop, down the stretch he was just as bad as Asomugha if not worse. DRC makes Maclin look tough as nails.

Again though, don't take anything Eskin says as fact until cooberated by a worthwhile source.

If this is true, we absolutely have to be in the market for a corner in FA

Agreed. Also, this may be Curtis Marsh's opportunity. Excited to see how he does.

The entire secondary has to be rebuilt. There really isn't one starter that I want back.

I'd say first 3, since the corner draft is so deep. There are guys that will be taken in the third and be good players and starters.

Does anyone know what the coaches think of him? I haven't paid much attention to him since he was drafted.

Correct.

Two new outside CBs to pair with Boykin in the slot.

A new FS to battle with Allen for the starting job.

New SS to start from day 1.


Do your job Howie!
