Cowboys to Grab Raider CB Asomugha to Keep Him From Being an Eagle?

The Dallas Morning News reports that the Cowboys may try to grab Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha just to keep him away from possibly being an Eagle.

One of the most interesting developments of an unusually slow offseason was the voidance of Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha’s contract in January. If and when free agency begins this year, the pursuit of Asomugha’s services is going to kick into high gear and one of the teams that will likely make a bid to acquire Asomugha is the Philadelphia Eagles.

Earlier this week, Eagles coach Andy Reid played coy when asked about the team’s interest in Asomugha during an interview on a Philadelphia radio station, but Philadelphia seems earnest about upgrading its personnel at a position where undistinguished players such as Joselio Hanson and Dimitri Patterson were sharing time. If that is the case, the Cowboys could have even more incentive to lure Asomugha to the Metroplex.

They already need help at cornerback and the fear of Asomugha landing in enemy hands — the hands of an NFC East rival, no less — could provide added motivation for the Cowboys if they decide to launch an aggressive campaign to sign the talented three-time Pro Bowler.
