The Eagles Released Nnamdi Asomugha

Gone. He’s gone. Nnamdi Asomugha is gone.

The Eagles announced that they have released the cornerback, who will still get $4 million from the team regardless of whatever other deal he gets.

Howie Roseman issued the following statement about Asomugha, whose signing was pretty much Roseman’s greatest moment in the NFL… so, there’s that:

"Coach Kelly and I each had a chance to speak with Nnamdi earlier and he took the news with a lot of class," said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. "We expected nothing less than that from him. He has been a true pro on and off the field for this organization and our community and we wish him all the best as he continues his NFL career. We spoke to his representatives at the Combine about his future status with the team and wanted to take time to analyze and make a decision. In the end, Coach and I both felt we needed to move in a different direction at the cornerback position for 2013 and beyond." 


Hilariously, Dave Spadaro already had an article ready to go about the Eagles' need to rebuild at cornerback.

  1. Later, you overrated piece of shit!!! Heard the Chiefs are looking for a corner, HAHA
    “‘Tis the season to be merry.”

  2. Glory, glory hallelujah! Assholemugha is gone! Praise the Lord and pass the peanut butter! Happy days are here again!

  3. I still dont understand how he was as bad he was. Im also scared that he ends up in our division, reverts to the player everyone thought he was, and locks down our shit bag receiving corps.

  4. i certainly share the region-wide sentiment of bitterness and anger from 2 straight seasons of dismal football. combine that disappointment with the fact that we are well under the salary cap and it leads to alarming urgency among the fan base to go out and just spend. however, remember where spending got us 2 years ago? that splash took us absolutely nowhere. never spend just to spend. like it or not, this team is clearly in a rebuilding phase, which means pricey and aged veterans (deangelo hall) should not be on our to-add list. the focus should be on the draft. remember, drafts from 1996-1999 led to some initial poor seasons, but things sure did improve from 2001-2005.

  5. Good! He was terrible in the sack! And not a good defender of the end zone either. It’s almost as if he wanted his backfield to be violated by receptions repeatedly And his play in the backfield was a fucking mess on top of it all. Dude is on the down low if you ask me.

  6. I wonder why there is so much hatred for Nnambi expressed in all these comments.
    Folks act like they personally know Nnambi and hate him for offense he did to them.

    Really don’t understand the hatred??
