Eagles Coach Chip Kelly Says CB Nnamdi Asomugha Is An "Outstanding" Person
The status of Nnamdi Asomugha, the Eagles marquee acquisition in 2011, remains uncertain, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. General manager Howie Roseman categorized last week's meeting with Asomugha's agent, Ben Dogra, as "positive," although he offered no update on what will happen with the 31-year-old cornerback. Asomugha is due $15 million in 2013, with $4 million guaranteed, but the Eagles are expected to try to restructure Asomugha's deal.
Kelly met with Asomugha before Asomugha's trip to Nigeria, but they were not permitted to discuss football due to the NFL's collective bargaining agreement. Kelly called him a "classy guy," but did not elaborate on Asomugha as a player.
"We've done film evaluation, and our staff and [general manager] Howie [Roseman] will sit down together and see where we'll move forward," Kelly said. "But as a person, I think he's outstanding."
