49ers Still Meeting With Asomugha, Delmas and Skuta

As of 5:35 PM Pacific Time, the 49ers are still meeting with free agents Nnamdi Asomugha, Louis Delmas, and Dan Skuta, according to CSN’s Matt Maiocco. 

Yesterday, it was reported that Asomugha and the 49ers had “mutual interest” in each other.

Bay Area fans may remember Asomugha for his time with the Raiders, when he was regarded by many as the best cornerback in all of football.

Drafted in the first round in 2003 by Al Davis, his accolades in Oakland include a three-time Pro Bowl selection, and four-time All Pro team membership. He was also the Raiders team MVP in 2006 and 2008.

However, in 2011, he departed from Oakland for Philadelphia, signing a five-year, $60 million contract. Asomugha struggled with the Eagles, and was released earlier this week.

Asomugha recorded 47 tackles and one interception in 16 games with the Eagles last season.

Walter Football lists Delmas as the top free agent safety available. He is undoubtedly talented, but the main issue with him is health.

Delmas recorded 28 tackles and one interception in eight games last season and has spent his entire four year career with the Lions.

He was named to the All-Rookie team in 2009 and was a Pro Bowl Alternate in 2010 and 2011.

Skuta has spent his entire four-year career with the Bengals. Last season, he recorded 15 tackles in 16 games on special teams, ranking third among all players.

His addition would obviously bolster the 49ers special teams, which needs some improvement.
