Most of us won't be surprised by this. Asomugha too big of a name
with too big a price for Pgh. Most of us knew this would not happen
before it was stated as such. Move on.
It doesn’t take a Steelers insider like Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to know that signing Nnamdi Asomugha to a big contract just isn’t the way that Pittburgh does business.
Bouchette has said numerous times this offseason it was his opinion that Pittsburgh would not pursue Asomugha. He has now officially confirmed it with the team, and can report it won’t happen.
So the Steelers won’t go after Asomugha. The Eagles are reportedly lukewarm about him, although we have our doubts about that.
Teams like the Redskins, Raiders, Texans, and Bucs to name a few make a lot of sense for Asomugha. Asomugha should have a big enough market to come close to Darrelle Revis‘ contract, if he doesn’t top it.
