Bowe out for the rest of the year with a rib tear.
Maybe if Baldwin can show some flashes of being a potential #1 they might think about saving money on Bowe and trade him in the offseason??
Honestly us and the Chiefs are like perfect trading partners, it's like a match made in heaven, we can give them the type of WR they need opposite of Baldwin and they give us exactly what we need next to Djax. We can also give them a QB if there isn't a franchise one with the first pick for them to take and have to for a couple years.
I'm willing to sacrifice Nnamdi's contract and replace that with Bowe and I'll be willing to bite the bullet by starting Hughes/Marsh/Drafted Rookie opposite DRC.
2013 Mock Chicago Bulls
They should have got that Jonathon Joseph guy... he's pretty good.
Half of Alabama’s Starting 22 would start for the Eagles Today. For anyone who followed Asomugha and the Raiders, his last really solid Season was back in 2008. His last 2 Seasons in Oakland were not Pro-Bowl material though he was named a Pro-Bowler by reputation which almost always ocurs in the NFL.
He never had very good deep coverage skills and was awesome from 15 Yards in. His Back-pedaling speed is atrocious and his timing, and leaping ability have really deterioated. His hands for Int's were always poor even during his Prime.
The eagles would have been better off with Carlos Rogers (who made All-Pro last year and probably will again this Season for the 49ers and is the Physical Style of Cb the Eagles needed) or even CB Richard Marshall who is another Physical Cb. Asomugha is overrated and not physical enough to play in the NFC East, he is one of the biggest bust sigings of all-time free-agency wise. He’s a nice guy who seems more concerned about his post-NFL career than his production on the field. He needs to be flat-out released on 12/31/2012 when AR and Staff get terminated.

I had such high expectations for him.Thought he would be as close to a true shut down corner as possible.Fact is he mediocre at best.I still think Samuel would have been a better solution at CB.At least he can catch the ball.Oh well...
Has Aso been a bust? Yeah. However, the safeties have been absolutely atrocious. Aso's strength is at the LOS. When you have safeties that don't know what the **** they're doing, it's kind of pointless to have a corner who excels in press coverage. If they keep Aso they need to upgrade the safety position. Then again, they need to upgrade the safety position anyways.
I would rather keep both corners and get two safeties than get rid of the corners and need corners AND safeties. I don't think we can do a complete makeover in one off-season.
That being said, he's still better than a lot of other starting corners in the BFL. Our bigger issue is safety. Doesn't make sense to get rid of him just to replace him and still be just as bad at safety
Ok so the Eagles don't press,no plans to do so.It makes a lot of sense to retain Nnamdi and that huge contract then.
Also the Chief will take a QB in the draft. They just have to. It's not considered a strong class but they still desperately need to lock the position down for the foreseeable future and there really aren't any good and affordable options to do that outside if the draft right now.
Also, I personally am more comfortable with Jackson and Maclin as our starting receivers than I would be with Hughes or Marsh starting at corner. But that's just me
Nnamdi is old and has lost a step. TIme to go into another direction
