    @KeithBritton86: #49ers are cutting Nnamdi Asomugha today.

    Anyone wanna give pros and cons of going after him?

    We could use more CB depth, might be able to revive the old Nnamdi...

    I have no idea what our Waiver priority is, but I would take a shot at obtaining him personally. Man corner.. Would fit. Couldn't hurt

    I think he would do well with verner griffin and pollard in the secondary. I would love to get this guy

    I don't know what has happened to him but he has been down right awful the last few years. We have rookie CBs I'd rather develop.

    I'm pretty sure he would start as our nickel guy. I couldn't see him bumping one of the starting cbs right off the bat. Worth the shot bringing him in tho.

    Could create a better (or possibly worse) contract idea for Verner. I like him, but in no way should be continue to over pay. Grabbing Nnamdi might make sense as a replacement if the FO already has an idea if verner can be retained.

    I don't follow the guy but I can't help but to wonder why he's been cut from two teams in 8 months.
