Philedelphia continues to silently shock the sports world. Not too long ago, it was dropping Donovan McNabb for Michael Vick. In baseball, the Cliff Lee acquisition stunning the Yankees and Rangers. Now?
The Eagles are reported to have signed Nnamdi Asomugha. Five years, $60 million according to ESPN’s Adam Scheftner. The Eagles had the cap room, not much unlike the Bucs, but the race was too hot for Tampa Bay to stay competitive. Both teams had a 10-6 record last season.
As the day progressed, the Dallas Cowboys were the front runner, followed by the Jets getting all the attention in the afternoon, but all along the twitter-sphere spoke of a mystery team – and that team is now revealed.
The city of Philadelphia is a silent assassin.
The Eagles also acquired pro-bowl corner back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in the Kevin Kolb trade this offseason, leading many to believe Asante Samuel will be on the trade block in the near future.
The Bucs and Eagles will not meet this season.
