Nnamdi Asomugha is looking to resurrect his career with the San Francisco 49ers after a disastrous couple years with the Philadelphia Eagles.
He is definitely on the right track, not disappointing during OTAs.
“Asomugha showed well,” according to Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle. “Asomugha often latched on quickly to the receivers he was covering and he muscled them. However, he had difficulty sustaining coverage on longer plays, which isn’t surprising at age 31.”
He signed a one-year deal worth up to $3 million with the 49ers during the offseason, but none of that money is guaranteed, so the 49ers can cut him anytime.
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 offseason.
Asomugha recorded 47 tackles and one interception in 16 games with the Eagles last season
