I Believe That Nnamdi Asomugha Wanted Out Of Oakland

The first thing that came to my mind after seeing that Nnamdi Asomugha signed for 12 million dollars a year to play in Philly was, "Routt is making 10?". Then I thought, hold on, Nnamdi voided a HUGE deal to become a free agent and then signed for millions less to go to a team that has a better track record over the past 6 years, the Eagles, because he sees them as having a chance to win it all.

I believe that Nnamdi made his intentions quite clear and the Raiders acted accordingly by signing Routt and drafting more possible replacements. Remember, Nnamdi was not much of an elite prospect when Al drafted him and moved him to corner. In short, AL went to work to re-tool his team without #21.(Funny sidenote, 4 of the Top 10 corners on the market, Nnamdi, Carr, Buchanon and Fabian, were all drafted by Al.)

Nnamdi, said that he wanted to play for a winner, and I think that he just left a winner that he knew for a winner that he doesn't know.

I don't hate Nnamdi for leaving Oakland and I appreciate all that he did while he was here. I mean, heck, if it weren't for him, there would have been ZERO good stories to come out of Oakland for a four year period. But, what I have done, is moved on. I don't root for or miss players that want out of Oakland. To Nnamdi, I say, "Good luck in Philly and I hope that Jacoby burns your ass in the Super Bowl".
