According to NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi, Houston is now in the “lead” for Asomugha’s services. He believes the deal would average between $12-14 million per season.
That’s actually less than many anticipated for Asomugha, but the bidding hasn’t ended. And the numbers are already higher than the Jets pay Darrelle Revis.
We have a hard time believing the Jets would pay Asomugha more than Revis because of the problems that could create. If Asomugha really wants to play in New York, he may have to take less money to do so.
