The entire Nnamdi Asomugha saga was just bizarre, from the beginning of his free agency journey to the end. All day, most were calling the Asomugha chase a battle between the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys, with the Jets holding a slight advantage. Both teams were making offers, counter-offers and staying in contact with Asomugha. At one point, the Cowboys' media corps was even spying on Jerry Jones as he made calls many thought were related to the free agent corner.
And then, right about the time free agents were allowed to sign, both the Jets and Cowboys were eliminated from contention as the Philadelphia Eagles swooped in. As Rex Ryan and his brother Rob battled for the free agent corner, the Eagles planned and plotted, luring Asomugha away in the end and surprising almost everyone following the saga.
But it gets even more weird. There's this note about Adam Sandler's involvement in the Asomugha sweepstakes.
Fact o' day: according to @Michaelombardi, Rex, battling his bro Rob, had noted Jets fan Adam Sandler call Nnamdi to pitch him.
And for some reason, this doesn't even raise an eyebrow. When the Ryan brothers are involved, is it that surprising one of them decided Sandler needed to throw his two cents in?
