The biggest name in free agency is cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, the Oakland Raiders’ perennial Pro Bowler.
The biggest question on the mind of many Texans fans is whether the Texans will sign Asomugha to bolster a secondary that was part of the league’s worst pass defense last season.
Bob Glauber, a columist for Newsday in New York, reports that the Texans are in the mix for the 30-year-old Asomugha’s services.
Yesterday, ESPN insider Chris Mortensen said that in regards to Asomugha, the “Texans will go hard
; you have to believe their offer will top all; that’s a Super Bowl contender if they land him.”
The Texans want to improve their secondary in free agency, but they have made no indications one way or another as to whether they’re pursuing Asomugha. He can’t sign with anybody until Friday at 5 p.m. CT, so it might be another long couple of days before we find out.
