    How do we afford him? Perhaps we trade them back their 2011 pick and in essence make it Seymour for Asomugha? :p

    We had a shut down corner and didnt wanna pay him. Why go out and give up multiple picks for another one (granted a better one) when I actually like the way the secondary has been playing...when we man up.

    The Patriots would win the next 2 rings if they got Nnamdi, even if it meant giving up the 2011 1st rounder. This guy is as impactful as Deion Sanders was in his prime.

    We're not trading two #1s for him; but, yeah, I would seriously be interested at a more reasonable price.

    This is Al Davis we're talking about though, so a 2024 7th rounder should do the trick.....

    Asante was nowhere near a shut down corner, of the caliber of Bailey, Nnamdi, or Ty Law in his prime.

    THe 2011 1st rounder is equivalent to a 2010 2nd rounder

    He's already gotten some of his money, so that might ease the pain a bit. I'd give up one of the two 2011 #1s pick plus the lowest of next season's #2s without hesitation.

    I'm almost thinking nnamdi might be the greatest corner back of all time.

    THINK about it. Deion Sanders played for incredible teams.

    Nnamdi is the best corner in the league on one of the ****tiest football teams in NFL history. THAT is impressive. Cornerbacks get lots of help from the d-line and linebackers when they pass rush and blitz. Nnamdi gets absolutely no support from them and opposing qb's STILL refuse to pass in his direction. Imagine what'd he do on the pats? Belichick called him the perfect cornerback.

    This guy is worth a 1st this year and a 1st next year for sure.

    Maybe even more than that

    Ty Law? He's the only shut-down corner we've had in the BB-era.

    And Nnamdi's contract is insane thanks to crazy Al Davis. Never mind what we'd have to give up; how would we fit him under the cap?

    If money and cap didn't matter, he'd be a great addition. But with that contract, I don't know how we could do it.

    I don't buy it. They just gave him a huge contract. The Pats would have to make some significant moves to fit him under the cap.

    I don't think so. I know those trades are made but usually when a specific player is there and not for an almost guaranteed top ten pick. I guarantee you Belichick doesn't consider it equal to a 2010 #2.

    he is the best CB in the NFL hand's down but the pats will never trade for him he's cap hit is to big

    they did not give samuel that 1 or 2 million more to keep him here yes samuel is not as good as Asomugha but he was and still is a big time play maker that get's INT's

    samuel had 4 INT last season and a TD for the eagels and has 3 INT this year

    who's the pats leader in INT oh ya randy moss lol

    Ok OK, maybe Asante wasnt a shutdown corner but he was our biggest play maker, but still I think our secondary is playing very well and I dont think its worth what it most likely will cost to get him. I saw him in person yesterday get his ankles broken by a rookie. :singing: Plus I dont think he will impact much of anything if we give Orton the time he had yesterday.

    I don't know if his contract is all that bad after this year. I don't think the Pats have the cap room this year without making moves, but his overall contract may not be that bad especially if Davis gave him a big bonus. His contract is strange. He signed a three year $45 million deal. He is guaranteed $28.5 million over the next two years and $16.5 million or the average of the top five players if they pick up his option in 2011.

    Now how much of that is in bonus in the first two years which will be on the Raiders' cap and not the team he is traded to? Will he be willing to renegotiate his deal to be on a team like the Pats for longer than three years if he can get out of Oakland?

    They gave Deangelo Hall a crazy contract last year after giving up a 2nd rounder for him, and they still released him.

    If this proves to be more than just a rumor, and they manage to pick him up, pay him, and then play more aggressively rushing the passer. This defense would be epic.

    Asante definitely made a lot of plays. But I never thought he was worth the big money. For one thing, the majority of his INTs were against crappy QBs. He often got them in bunches. Rarely did he make a big play against a big opponent, unless you count division opponents vs. some pretty bad QBs. His INT history shows this:

    2006: 10 INTs. 3 vs. Chicago (Rex Grossman), 2 vs. Tennessee (Vince Young), 2 vs. Miami (against the great Joey Harrington), 1 each vs. Detroit, Houston, Buffalo.
    2007: 6 INTs. 2 vs. Philly (against A.J. Feeley), 1 each vs. Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Washington.

    With Philly, he hasn't had as many INTs, though at least he picked Big Ben, Tony Romo, and then-rookie Matt Ryan.

    2008: 4 INTs. 1 each from Dallas, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and Cleveland.
    2009: 3 INTs. 1 vs. Carolina (Jake Delhomme is serving them up), 2 vs. Tampa.

    There's nothing wrong with making picks against crappy QBs. And it's obviously much more difficult to pick a good QB. I'm just saying his rep as a big-time playmaker doesn't hold up. More often, he padded his stats against inferior competition and didn't do much when the big lights were on.

    Asante is an excellent corner but he isnt a shutdown corner. Nhamdi is on a different level from Asante. I doubt this rumor is true but if it is I still doubt the Pats make a move for him.

    (about aggressive pass rush)

    That is why I added it in there. ;)

    But, would it be EPIC?

    No but Adam Seward would:singing: Dont get me wrong I would love to have Nnamdi here but I doubt it will/is going to happen, and I don't think we should sacrifice multiple firsts for him especially with the secondary we have now.

    Patriots + Asomugha = Super Bowl team. Giving back the Seymour pick to get him would be a steal.

    Asante isn't half the CB that Asomugha is.
