Default Nnamdi Asomugha Not Getting Tagged?

The first person I thought would get franchised tagged would be him yet he has still not been tagged. Today is the last day so what are they waiting for?

All the buzz is that the Raiders are close to inking a long term deal with Asomugha in the next couple days. Last I heard they were working feverishly to get something done tonight.

If the negotiations falls through, they'll definitely tag him again, since Lechler has already been brought back.

I would have nothing against getting him to Miami. Maybe a little wishful thinking, but his contract would be ridiculously high. But I find it hard to imagine that the Raiders would release him so easily.

They will probably find out something.

I imagine they're waiting to the last second because they're probably in the midst of negotiations for a new deal. Not that a tag would prevent that from continuing, but it acts as an initial deadline or sorts.

Or maybe the Raiders are still weighing their options. The last CB they tagged (Woodson) ended up signing the tender right away unexpectedly as a power play, stripping $10M off their cap room figure, when they really hadn't planned for that $10M to count yet.

I know nothing is official yet (that's part of the reason I added the link), but based on what's come out so far I think it's pretty safe to say that the Raiders aren't letting him walk.

I would be shocked if he is not tagged if they can't get a deal done at the least a tag and trade but I don't even see that going down.

I wanna see him get out of Oakland so bad, but I guess Al figures that's about the only draft pick that panned out and he's not letting him go anywhere.

No way he hasn't learned his lesson after being there for however long he has been in Oakland.

I think its better for both parties to franchise him and trade him. Oakland has no need for a shutdown CB when they can get help at other positions, and Asomugha can go to a place where his coverage skills will actually be appreciated by some wins.

The ravens need to get a hold of Asomugha. If he is franchised I think they should offer their 1st rounder with a couple other picks over the next two years. They get him, keep working with Fabian Washington and hold out hope Rolle has one more year and the secondary is in good shape.

Asomugha, Raiders nearing deal
By Jim Trotter, SI.com

Nnamdi Asomugha and the Oakland Raiders are on the verge of a landmark contract that could bring the All-Pro cornerback $26 million, at least, in guarantees over the next two years, a source familiar with the negotiations said today.

Agent Tom Condon has forwarded the proposed contract to the NFL's Management Council for approval, which is usually the final step before a deal is finalized.

Asomugha, one of the game's top cornerbacks, will be franchised for a second consecutive year if the Management Council rejects the contract proposal. Teams have until 4 p.m. today to designate franchise players; the Raiders would use the tag on Asomugha to protect themselves from losing him in free agency without compensation.

The $26 million approximates what Asomugha would earn over the next two years if the Raiders used the franchise tag on him in 2009 and 2010. The source said the guaranteed money could climb as high as $29 million over the next two years. Even more noteworthy is the proposed deal, which runs six years for salary cap purposes, includes an out clause that would allow Asomugha to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2010 season.

Yesterday, the Raiders reached agreement with free-agent punter Shane Lechler on a $12 million, four-year deal that reportedly includes $9 million in guarantees.

Interesting. Oakland has been doing a lot of cramming guaranteed money into the first two years. The Javon Walker contract was exactly the same (in fact, all his guaranteed cash will be paid out by this June). I thought 26 million in guarantees was about right about a week ago, but now I'm very interested to see the structure of this contract. It looks pretty unique.

Except here he has some long term security if he gets hurt, which was one of the major concerns he voiced after getting tagged the first time last year.
