It is rumored on ESPN.com that Nnamdi Asomugha will most likely be headed to the Houston Texans, simply because they are able to offer him more money than any other team out there: 14-15 million a year.
UPDATE VII: Michael Lombardi of NFL Network is reporting that the Houston Texans are the new leaders in the Nnamdi Asomugha sweepstakes, and the reason is money -- he says they're offering him $12 to $15 million a year. For comparison, the Jets are paying Darrelle Revis $11.5 million a ye
This got me thinking. If Nnamdi Asomugha is going after the most money instead of a ring, maybe it's not so bad that he's not going to sign with Baltimore.
UPDATE VI: John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports the Houston Texans are not giving up their fight for Nnamdi Asomugha. At the same time, they're also in negotiations with Johnathan Joseph, the consensus No. 2 cornerback on the free agent market.
"The Texans will have to restructure a lot of contracts if they're able to sign Asomugha or Joseph, either of whom would fill the most important need on the team," McClain writes
Now this is something i found very interesting. I had strong hope that the Ravens would target Joseph considering Ike Taylor resigned and the Nnamdi sweepstakes got too expensive. I think it will be difficult for the texans to ink both of these guys but if they are able to... They are favorites to win the AFC south in my opinion and perhaps even to make a deep run in the Post Season.
