    Nnamdi has had a ton of injuries over his career. Probably has just caught up with him.

    It's amazing how far this guy has fallen. He once was the best CB 2-3 years ago..

    I just remember him being the most coveted free agent. Got paid stupid amount of money... kind of the same thing that happened to Nate Clements... got paid and stopped playing football.

    I forgot DeAngelo Hall was ever in Oakland... That's because he was only there for one season and he sucked IIRC.

    RSB is totally right on this. I will admit that I wanted this guy after Philly cut him but it is beginning to look like the guy never really was that good. Looking back the hype seems nuts. The best CB in the league played for the Oakland Raiders? Doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of sense. And to think that he commanded all that money based on that same logic makes even less sense.

    I don't believe that he quit playing hard once he got paid, I just think that he wasn't near as good as he was hyped up to be.

    it doesn't matter what name you have back there, its how the personal fits the scheme. You rarely hear of any corner coming into a new system and keep the same success. Which is why I rarely want a corner from free agency.

    Bailey is the only one that comes to mind and thats because he is/was on another level.
