Oh well...one fewer CB on the market.

"RAIDERS TAG ASOMUGHA (GESUNDHEIT)

The Oakland Raiders have applied their franchise tag to cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, according to Adam Schefter of NFL Network.

Asomugha will be tendered a one-year contract equal to the average of the five highest-paid cornerbacks in 2007."

No surprise here....Haynesworth for the Titans got tagged today too.

Every year we get all excited about a guy to be let go from another team and we are all like "let's go after him," but usually one of two things happen. 1) they get franchised or 2) they go elsewhere.

I have learned to just go along for the ride because you never know who we are going to sign or go after.

No suprise, but still disappointing. Give me that guy over Samual or Trufant.

Trade for Lito or sign Trufant.

Forget about Asante Samuel. He doesn't fit our system and isn't a very good man cover corner. Though, the same can be said about Trufant, he is still a better option than Samuel.

:mad:
If you could call any CB in the NFL a perfect fit for the Saints, he is the one.
Trufant it is then?

why are we shocked that talent never reaches free agency?

Moreover PFT is reporting that he was hit with the exclusive tag, meaning that other teams can't even negotiate with him. This doesn't really affect us as I'd hope we wouldn't consider 2 first rounders anyway.

This was expected, but it's looking better every day for Trufant to hit FA if he does we need to go after him with big money.
