Default CB Nnamdi Asomugha to the 49ers

49ers agreed to terms with CB Nnamdi Asomugha, formerly of the Eagles, on a one-year contract.

Asomugha chose the 49ers over the Saints and his former DC Rob Ryan. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal is worth "up to" $3 million, and includes a $1.35 million base salary.

Asomugha is an excellent cover corner but a liability in zone- all in all a good deal for the 49ers.

Great deal. No risk at all, and only improves an already great D

He's one of the best man-to-man CBs in the NFL. The Eagles didn't use him properly, but what else is new with that fuck up of a franchise? If he was 3 - 4 years younger I would've advocated grabbing him but he's right up there in age with Taylor and wouldn't be a long term solution.

Dude got absolutely toasted the past two seasons and was hounded by his teammates for not even putting in any effort. Sure, he was good once, but that time has passed. It has nothing to do with the Eagles "not using him properly".
