Nnamdi Asomugha has been asked by the Eagles to take a “massive” pay cut, or he will be cut, according to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com. Asomugha is set to make 15 million this upcoming season so it is highly unlikely the team could trade the struggling cornerback. The team even seems to be playing with the idea of going after Darrelle Revis:
“One team source had told me Wednesday that there had been no contact between the Eagles and Jets regarding a [Darrelle] Revis trade, but that was Day 1 of the combine. The same source didn’t rule out the idea of the Eagles making overtures. A cornerback tandem of Revis and Sean Smith would sure be interesting and allow the Eagles to address safety in the draft, which has some decent ones.”
Asomugha has struggled every since signing with the Eagles for a mega contract 2 off seasons ago. Based on all the facts, it seems Asomugha will be wearing a different uniform during the 2013 season.
