The decision of the Texans to sign cornerback Jonathan Joseph took one of the primary suitors out of the mix for Nnamdi Asomugha.
And that has prompted increased speculation that he’ll agree to terms with the Jets.
Despite the “reports” (i.e., educated guesses) of some on Twitter who pretend to know a hell of a lot more than they actually know, there’s no deal with the Jets or anyone. Yet.
Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork reports that the Jets are “still hammering away” at the negotiations, and that it “could turn into a Favre-like vigil, ending in wee hours.”
So brew the coffee and get ready to dump some whiskey into it. We could be here a while.
The Bucs, contrary to reports to the contrary, aren’t in this one. The Jets are. It’s believed that the 49ers are. There’s talk the Cowboys could be. And we can’t rule out the Raiders, where he has played for eight years.
Stay tuned and keep your F5 finger from cramping.
