Nnamdi Asomugha Calling It Quits
Three seasons after leaving the Raiders for greener pastures and a perceieved better chance at post season play defensive back Nnamdi Asomugha is coming back to the Oakland.
Why? So he can retire as a member of the team he built his name with.
Oakland drafted him in the first round in 2003, and over the next few years his reputation as a shutdown corner grew to near epic proportions. His skill truly reached legendary status in 2008 when opposing quarterbacks only through his way 27 times the entire season.
He’d end up leaving after the 2010 season when the Raiders decided not to give the high-dollar contract he desired. Philadelphia did to the tune of $60 million over five years, but the one-time shutdown cornerback failed to live up to expectations becoming one of the easiest targets in football.
