If you hang out in some of the usual spots where Philadelphia Eagles supporters congregate on game days, you might still notice some ‘wanted’ placards displaying photographs of Nnamdi Asomugha’s likeness if you pay close attention. On September 22nd, 2013, he donned his uniform for the final game of a National Football League career that had spanned 11 seasons. He had been playing in the NFL since 2003.
Even more time has passed since he last played for the Birds; to be precise, it was Week 17 of the NFL season in 2012.
Once more, this was a rather unique analysis due to the fact that everyone is aware of how talented Dallas Goedert is. Nevertheless, I think it’s interesting to truly concentrate on a player and think about how brilliant they are at what they do. Goedert is a pretty good blocker, which is one of the reasons why I believe he is one of the finest tight ends in the league as an all-around tight end. I believe that as a tight end in general, you could make a case that he is as good as the third best tight end, behind only Travis Kelce and George Kittle. This is something that I think is possible. Because of their explosiveness and their capacity to make quick gains down the field, I believe that Kyle Pitts and Darren Waller have a little edge over him when it comes to receiving options alone.
Don’t even bother with that. When his price tag is weighed against the expectations that followed and, ultimately, the results that he achieved, Nnamdi Asomugha is without a doubt the worst free-agent signing in the history of the franchise. He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles. If that title is ever going to be taken away from him, whoever takes it will have some pretty huge shoes to fill.
The Philadelphia Eagles have one of the most talented offences in the National Football League. They have a receiving tandem that has the potential to be one of the best in the league and they have an excellent line to protect the quarterback. Their quarterback is the key to everything coming together, and he has already demonstrated that he is capable of raising the level of his performance once. If he does it again, it won’t come as a surprise to anyone. The point spread of 9.5 wins offered by PointsBet is accurate. Although I incline toward the over, I don’t see a lot of value in that bet. The Eagles’ chances of winning the NFC East at +175 are more fascinating than those of any other team. In light of the fact that I am certain of Brown’s brilliance and that the Eagles have an improving quarterback, I believe that choosing Brown to win Offensive Player of the Year at a price of +8000 is the best bet I can make for the Eagles.
Asante Samuel, a former cornerback for the Eagles, sat in the same section as LeSean McCoy, another legendary player for the team, as well as Brandon Marshall and Adam Jones. As you could expect, Nnamdi was brought up in conversation. Be on the lookout. It’s not a nice sight.
Because of Nnamdi, it will be difficult for any free-agent signing the Eagles make in the future to be considered among their worst ever. It’s possible that he’ll have that title for some time.
After being named to the First-team All-Pro twice (in 2008 and 2010), the Second-team All-Pro twice (in 2006 and 2009), and the Pro Bowl three times (in 2008–2010), it was clear early on in his tenure with the Eagles that he no longer had anything to contribute to the team. The fans were the first to notice it. His teammates noticed it even sooner than he did.
