We’ve got you covered just in case free agency starts

N. Asomugha1

As the NFL as we know it implodes, we could use a little escapism.

So let’s talk a little actual football!

It’s still possible that free agency could start at midnight.  If it doesn’t, well, it will start eventually.

Florio and I took a break from labor pains on Friday to discuss on PFT Live where the top free agents might land.   Florio thinks Nnamdi Asomugha could wind up in Houston, while I award him to the Eagles.

Find out where we think DeAngelo Williams, Zach Miller, Antonio Cromartie, Matt Hasselbeck, Santonio Holmes, Terrell Owens, and Randy Moss all could land below.

    Nnamdi went to Houston but was informed that the city had “disincorporated”. Everyone just looked at him strangely when he mentioned the word “football”.

    Asomugha will likely leave Oakland, especially considering the money Al Davis has been spending on other potential free agents (Routt, Seymour, etc). But Zach Miller will be an Oakland Raider next year. Miami? St. Louis? Not a chance. The Raiders tendered Miller with 1st and 3rd round picks. Yes, with the (eventual) new CBA he could still be a free agent, but this means Davis wants him. Davis generally keeps the players he wants, and Miller seems to be happy there. The fact that the team is improving is more reason for him to stay. And he will. Write it down.

    How exactly is Zach Miller “destined to leave” Oakland? I totally agree with woods546 on that one. And when or if free agency starts before games are actually played, a lot of free agents are going to be more likely to stay put than to take a flyer in a new system/situation/city.

    This whole labor situation is about to get a lot more interesting, and a lot dirtier. Hopefully some sort of agreement is reached before Labor Day weekend. However unlikely even that seems at this point.

    woods546, its almost as if they have to deal Zach Miller anyway for a 1st and 3rd NOW. They have to replace Aso AND Michael Huff.

    There is no freaking way Hiram Freaking Eugene is an NFL starting Free Safety ….. and he’s getting paid more than Brandon Merriweather.

    Do the same rules apply? (eg, salary cap ramifications, restricted Free Agents, etc)

    Oh what I would give to get Asomugha in Pittsburgh … sigh.

    So let me get this straight… in spite of Zach Miller saying he wants to stay in Oakland… in spite of him being a 4-year player who will more than likely be a restricted free agent once a CBA is reached… in spite of Al Davis putting a 1st and 3rd round tender on him… Miller is “destined” to leave Oakland?

    This site offers some good insight on occasion, but there are times where I think you guys just don’t pay attention.

    tatum064, no one would give the Raiders a 1st and 3rd for Miller in reality. But I don’t think losing Huff (if he goes) is a big blow anyway. Aso is going to hurt, no doubt. He is a superb corner and I love the type of person he is too. A true example of a role model. But Al probably thinks his eye for talent will find another CB, and Walter McFadden and Jeremy Ware are only going into year 2.

    I am with you 100% on Eugene, but don’t rush to think he is a starter just because he is getting 2.5m+ a year. He is great on special teams, and the Raiders have Branch, Mitchell (not there yet but got better in 2010), and Stevie Brown. They are very high on Brown. Eugene will probably see an increased role, but I bet he does not start at safety, injury being the exception.

    Why is Randy Moss mentioned in this article?
