The Eagles’ signing of Nnamdi Asomugha has Philadelphia fans as surprised as the rest of us. And using flash cards to remember how to spell their new favorite player’s name correctly, for when they begin ripping him for the first blown coverage on online forums. But mostly, it has them quite pleased.
Philadelphia now easily boasts the best set of corners in the NFL with Asoumugha, Asante Samuel and Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie.
Good luck to anyone that tries to throw a pass against this defense next year.
Of course, you will notice that there are three corners listed there, which tends to be more than most NFL teams can use at any one time. The Eagles are being a bit guarded about what they’re going to do to relieve the logjam.
But fans are probably more than willing to wait and see how the team deals with that problem. There are worse things that a team could face in the increasingly bizarre NFL free-agent circus.
