    Eagles could part ways with Nnamdi after the season

    It’s regarded as a foregone conclusion that the Eagles will cut quarterback Mike Vick after the 2012 season, given that he’s due to earn a base salary of $15.5 million in 2013.

    Vick’s not the only high-profile player who could be on his way out of Philly.

    Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is due to earn a base salary of $15 million next season. Per a source with knowledge of the deal, $4 million of the salary is fully guaranteed. But $11 million isn’t; the question for the Eagles is whether they’re willing to pay Asomugha $4 million not to play for them — or $15 million to remain on the team.

    Cutting Asomugha after the season would trigger no cap hit, other than the $4 million in guaranteed money. His contract had no signing bonus, with the Eagles using a structure that equates compensation to cap number each year.

    There’s a way the Eagles could make Asomugha’s cash and cap number less problematic next season. Per the source, the contract reduces Asomugha’s pay by $3 million in 2013 if the participates in fewer than 90 percent of the snaps in 2011 or 2012. Benching Asomugha late in the year for a couple of games would prevent him from hitting that number, dropping his salary to $12 million.

    Benching Asomugha to trigger a $3 million reduction in his pay may not be the wisest strategy for keeping him happy. Regardless, chances are he won’t be thrilled with his wages in 2013. Given the decline in his performance, no one will pay him $15 million next season.
    I remember ppl bashing me saying I'm glad Tampa didn't sign him. Warren sapp put the blueprint on this guy saying in Oakland he never consistently covered number 1s? Warren won
    and with the 12th pick, The New York Football Giants select ......Odell Beckham Jr, Wide Reciever from Louisana State University

    Of course he is gone, unless he restructures.
    All I do is hit. I even hit your mother once. Yep, hit it good.

    I hadn't paid much attention to the talk of him being on the decline until a few weeks ago when Julio caught that bomb on him from ol' Noodle Arm.

    Amazing - the Eagles dominated the division for a decade while parting ways with players on the back nine and not signing many pricey free agents. They fell just short of Superbowls many times and, IMO, believed adding some significant, costly free agent talent would get them over the top. It's backfired.

    They're a very talented mess though. All that talent and add on some very high draft picks which cost a minimum for many years, look out. They aren't that far away.

    That's the thing. As an Eagles fan, the last two seasons have been the most trying experience of my football watching life (I tend to void out the 90's Eagles or my brain wants to explode). Honestly, I can't tell you definitively what the problem is with this team, but for anyone to deny they aren't talented is just wrong. At a certain point, I believe it comes down to coaching but that's a conversation for another topic.

    I don't see Nnamdi back next season regardless of how we finish. There is just no way they will be able to justify paying him 15 million to be a number two receiver. With Nnamdi and Vick off the books, we can go after a younger, more consistent corner, safety, and O-line help. 30 Million plus whatever else we had free is a lot of money to spend.

    Asomugha's struggles have been schematic and not as a result of "declining ability" or being exposed for being overrated. When you watch the Eagles play; you'll notice that he is expected to hold down his entire side of the field and he gets beat quite frequently because he's expecting there to be a safety over the top but by the time he realizes his safety is outta position its too late to make up the ground. And btw Warren Sapp is an idiot cus in Oakland he was always on the opposing teams number one receiver
