Lions to be One of the Top Landing Spots for CB Nnamdi Asomugha

Gil Brandt says that the Lions are a strong possibility to land free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha, who could come in and team up with the “Silver Crush” D-line to be one of the best up and coming defenses in the NFL.

When it comes to NFL free agency, there’s only one name that really matters to Detroit Lions fans: Nnamdi Asomugha.

Normally, that would be cause for some therapy sessions, but not according to NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt, who says the Lions would be one of but the top destinations for the Raiders cornerback if he doesn’t return to Oakland.

The other two, in no particular order, are the Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans.

Brandt, who was vice president of player personnel for the Cowboys from 1960-89, thinks Detroit would be a great choice for the 29-year-old All-Pro cornerback because of its dominant defensive line, including back-to-back first-round selections of defensive tackle in All-Pro Ndamukong Suh and rookie Nick Fairley.
