    The initial rush of free-agent activity has passed, but a long list of players remain teamless. One of the bigger names still on the market is Nnamdi Asomugha, the former All-Pro cornerback who's been linked to the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints.

    The Saints "remain high" on Asomugha, according to Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune. Coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis reiterated at this week's NFL Annual Meeting that they simply are waiting for the three-time Pro Bowl selection to make a decision about where he'll play next.

    The Saints are a solid fit for Asomugha, who remains close to defensive coordinator Rob Ryan after they worked together on the Oakland Raiders.

    I hope the Saints do get him, because my draft crush is Alford. Guy is a beast

    well, the market for nnamdi is obviously not very strong. wonder if we are going to see another 1-year deal here as he tries to re-prove himself.

    if he tanks this season then you can stick a fork in him.

    If there's one place it would work for him, it's be in New Orleans and back with his boy Rob Ryan. At least Ryan will know how to use Asomugha best. It's up to him to show if he can still do it on the field physically.
