Free Agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha Leaves 49ers to Visit Saints

Free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha will visit with the Saints on Sunday, reports CSN’s Matt Maiocco. 

Asomugha met with the 49ers earlier this week, and the latest word was that he was in “serious discussions” to sign with them.

However, this latest news means he has either chosen not to sign with the 49ers, or he is evaluating his other options before making a decision.

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 seaso
