NFL Free Agency: 49ers Made No Offer to Nnamdi Asomugha


Despite earlier reports indicating that the 49ers were in “serious discussions” to sign free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, a source has told the Press-Telegram that the 49ers made no offer to Asomugha after meeting with him last week.

Instead, it is likely that any offers would have to wait until after he has completed his free agent visits.

Asomugha met with the Saints in New Orleans on Sunday, but there has been no indication of how talks went

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.
