Not long after we tweeted a link to the story regarding Howard Eskin’s report that the Eagles will be cutting cornerback Nnamdi Asomuga today, Twitter lit up like an old-school switchboard with reports from local and national folks refuting the news.
Eventually, Eskin himself joined the chorus, calling it a “bad tweet.”
Still, Eskin says the Eagles eventually will cut Asomugha. And he’s most likely right.
As we understand it, the decision is coming in a few days.
The fact that the Eagles appear to be poised to wipe Asomugha’s contract off the books before the start of free agency strongly suggests that they already have plans for spending the extra cap money they’ll realize once Asomugha is gone.
