Eagles Could Save Money By Benching CB Nnamdi Asomugha Now
Eagles corner Nnamdi Asomugha has been a free-agent bust in Philadelphia, and his stint there could be brief, with the team cutting veterans and firing coaches in recent weeks in preparation for a reshaped organization in 2013. Benching Asomugha now, however could save the team future money in the event that he is back in Philadelphia next season and still playing out this contract.
Asomugha, who received $25 million guaranteed when he signed in July 2011, made $10 million in 2011 and makes $11 million this season. His base salary jumps to $15 million in 2013, with $4 million fully guaranteed, however, there is a $3 million de-escalator in the contract, according to league sources, should Asomugha fail to reach 90 percent playing time in either 2011 or 2012.
There is no proration in the deal, so if the Eagles did move away from Asomugha as part of their 2013 transition, they would suffer no cap hit.
