Asomugha's future in San Francisco
By Brent Sobleski
Nnamdi Asomugha wasn't guaranteed a spot on the San Francisco 49ers roster when he signed an one-year deal with the team. As the season approaches, the likelihood of the 49ers retaining Asomugha continues to grow.
"Looks like Nnamdi has a really good shot at making the 49ers roster. Expect them to spell him and limit playing time," Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweeted.
"49ers know Nnamdi isn't 25 anymore. They'll limit his snaps. They also love the chip on his shoulder, how he's out to restore his reputation."
If Asomugha is now likely to make the roster, recent acquisition Eric Wright is less likely. The team still has Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown and Perrish Cox as part of the cornerback rotation.
