UPDATE: Michael Lombardi believes the deal would average between $12-14 million per season. Houston could wait no longer on Nnamdi Asomugha to make a decision so they pulled the trigger on Jonathan Joseph instead.
According to NFL Insider Michael Lombardi, the Houston Texans have moved into the lead in acquiring Nnamdi Asomugha over the New York Jets and the San Francisco 49ers. Asomugha will most likely sign with a team by this Saturday.
This signing is important as it will set the precedent for the contracts of the other big name Free Agent Cornerbacks this offseason such as Jonathan Joseph and Antonio Cromartie. Joseph and Cromartie are the most likely targets for the Texans if they fail to acquire Asomugha.
