San Francisco 49ers in he hunt for Asomugha

Jul 27, 2011 at 9:04 AM


According to Michael Lombardi of NFL Network, the New York Jet's main competition for the services of free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha are the San Francisco 49ers.

Lombardi says, "they are in it strong." He also goes on the tweet, "I am sure Houston is involved as well in Asomugha, but it sounds like SF and NY are in the lead right now."

Asomugha is the biggest name in free agency this year.

For those that felt that Asomugha was out of reach, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area mentions on Twitter, "Remember, 49ers can create $15M in cap wiggle room to go after Asomugha by addressing Clements' contract."

Matt Barrows mentions on his blog that, "Landing Asomugha likely would mean the 49ers would cut ties with another cornerback, Nate Clements, whom the 49ers signed to a massive deal in 2007."

An Arsenal of Weapons: The 49ers Have Quietly Become Even More Dangerous on Offense in 2024

By Don Atkinson
May 13

It's not a shock to anyone who looks back at the past two NFL seasons to contemplate that the San Francisco 49ers' offense has finally stepped out of the shadow cast by the team's ever-imposing defense. Since their 2019 Super Bowl run, players like Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, and former 49ers Richard Sherman and Jimmie Ward have garnered most of the attention when talking about the team. That was indeed the case until 2022, when future Hall-of-Fame running back Christian McCaffrey, who came to San Francisco in a mid-season trade with the Carolina Panthers, changed the conversation.
