When free agency begins, the biggest name on the market will be cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. And the team with gaping needs at the position will be on Asomugha’s trail.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Texans are expected to make a run at the soon-to-be-former Raider.
In the end, the question becomes how much it will cost to sign Asomugha, and that will be driven by the number of teams that pursue him.
The Texans had a high-end corner, but they allowed Dunta Robinson to walk via free agency to the Falcons last year. They’ll need to be ready to pay even more to Asomugha than it would have taken to keep Robinson, if the Texans choose to pursue Asomugha.
