For some strange reason, I'd like it if Asomugha stays with the Raiders. It's where he came up and I think he can help turn it around.

He could but if he likes the deal in front of him he'll take it. And as for wanting to win I think Milloy said what a lot of players think: they'd rather make more money then win superbowls. Not many guys do the Tom Brady thing and leave money on the table, and how much more money has he made off the field for being to golden boy he's become?

The Raiders reportedly don't plan to franchise tag Nnamdi Asomugha if they fail to work out a long-term deal with him by 4PM ET.
Asomugha would then hit the market and probably get more money than what Oakland is proposing. Every team in the league would have interest.
Source: Sporting News

Looks like they have a deadline to meet.

I firmly believe Al Davis would franchise Asomugha for the next two years, and maybe even a third past that, before letting him walk willy-nilly.

There's no other player he'd rather have imo.

Well, he couldn't franchise him a 4th time in a row, but yes, I'm sure that Al Davis promised to keep Asomugha around one way or another. This way Aso gets longterm security if he gets injured.

Yeah, as if a guy making $5 million instead of $8 million is going to have trouble feeding his family.

I freaking hate that argument from sports players. It's not about providing for your family so don't try to BS us by telling us that it is. It's about status. That's what this is all about. You want to have high status because you have so much money.

I hope I don't come off as supporting Milloy's view, I bring it up because I think it affects a lot of players decisions, I wish players had more perspective on life and money. Of course althlete's don't even understand that they aren't above the law so maybe I'm asking too much.

given that the raiders, from all rumors, WILL franchise him, he's earned no additional money if he signs this contract, and in fact, runs a substantial risk of getting less money on a contract than he might have in the open market.

but i'll assume next time you might actually spend 6 seconds reading a thread before blowing your load as soon as you see the post reply button.
im not sure, id work out a deal if they are going to franchise me or demand a trade or something, in his position i wouldnt have tried to sign one before that

Asomugha lands complex three-year deal with Raiders
Posted: February 19th, 2009 | Adam Schefter

For a change, the Oakland Raiders intercepted CB Nnamdi Asomugha on his way to the free-agent market.

Asomugha signed a three-year deal that is worth a minimum of $45 million and could reach $50 million, a league source said.

Itís a complex contract that the NFL had to sift through and approve, and it has. The deal works like this:

The first two years, worth $28.5 million, are fully guaranteed. In the third year of the contract, if Oakland wants to keep Asomugha, it must pay him the average of the top five highest-paid quarterbacks in the game or $16.875 million ó whichever is greater. If the Raiders fail to pick up the option, Asomugha will become a free agent, with Oakland not having the ability to tag him again.

Itís a complex deal, but the bottom line is itís done. The Raiders kept Asomugha and punter Shane Lechler without having to use a franchise tag.

That is a ridiculous deal for a Cornerback. Hard to blame the Raiders really, they did find a way to keep their two top players in Oakland. Wow though, it sure came at a large cost.

Wow he really re-signed? I gotta give it up for a player with team loyalty, but seriously Nnamdi deserves a better team.

Thats a pretty dope deal. Not even a long term one, but ****, if you can get that much money quickly and that much guaranteed money, he is going to just get even more in 3 years.

Aso is what? 28, 29? Probably will be his second last contract unless he goes the old man route and junks around from team-team picking up pay checks until he is 38 or something...

That's a great job by both sides getting it done. This is a perfect deal for Aso. I still can't believe he would want to stay in Oakland though.

Great work by his agent, really. He jobbed the Raiders for all he could (but hey, at least he earned it) and he's most likely gonna have the chance to pick up another 15 guaranteed after that contract is over. Good work.

Yeah, it will be interesting to see how long Asomugha's career lasts. He was mostly a safety in college and I could see a return to free safety once he starts losing some long speed, which could stretch his career out further than if he stayed at corner.

The Raiders don’t divulge contract numbers, but the length coincides with reports by the NFL Network and CNN-SI. According to the reports, Asomugha stands to make between $28.5 million and $29 million over two years.

The third year would be at the Raiders option, so long as they pay him the franchise figure for NFL quarterbacks _ the highest salaried postion.

More to come later . . .
Wow, 29 million over two years...and an option to pay the top 5 QB avg salary in the third yr? Only a 3 yr deal?? I love Aso and am happy he's staying but this is a little over the top. Sure, one of the WR's will be on lockdown, but what about everyone else? Plus, we NEVER move Aso around, even when it's clear that the other team is lining up secondary receivers with him to have a better matchup for their primary receiver. I hope that changes with the new D coordinator.

with a signing chris johnson earlier and his performance last season we can say we wont be wasting another DB in atleast the first 2 rounds of the draft but then again he might want to pick up another saftey but i hope it wont be until 3round or later.
