Schefter says Seahawks could pursue CB Nnamdi Asomugha

Published on March 21, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

-ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes in his mailbag that he thinks former Washington quarterback Jake Locker will be off the board by the time the Seattle Seahawks make the 25th pick.

Schefter also lists Seattle among the teams that could pursue cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who will be a free agent when a new CBA is reached:

Piecing together some background on him, I get the sense he’d prefer to play for an East Coast team — maybe the Jets, the Giants, the Ravens, teams like that. But I also think other teams, such as the Seahawks, Redskins and Texans, might take a run at him.

Asomugha, 29, has spent his entire eight-year career with Oakland and is widely considered one of the best cornerbacks in the league.

He signed a three-year, $45.3 million contract after the 2008 season that made him the highest-paid defensive back in league history. A clause in that contract allowed it to void if he didn’t reach some incentives in 2010, which he did not.
