The 49ers once again snatch something up for such a little price. Former Eagle, and Raider Nnamdi Asomugha signed with the 49ers on a one year three million dollars. The best part about this deal is that there is no guaranteed money towards Asomugha. The 49ers made an excellent move here getting Nnamdi for such a low price. I know many are looking at this and thinking about how poor Nnamdi played in Philadelphia, but we forget Jim Harbaugh is a genius when it comes to revitalizing a players career. Nnamdi will also be in a situation where he won’t have all the pressure on him to be the leader of the defense. In Philadelphia, Nnamdi kind of got the treatment as the de-facto leader of the defensive front.
Not to mention Nnamdi was playing for a lot of money as a player at the time. With ego going to be down, and him going to be playing with guys like Patrick Willis, and Justin Smith men who are leaders on defense you can expect to see a change in Nnamdi Asomugha. The move is a smart one for the 49ers, and it is a move they are hoping will help them get over the hump and win the Super Bowl next season.
