Nnamdi Asomugha To Jets Chatter Picks Back Up

All it takes is one tweet...

In this case, the tweet came from SI's Peter King, who said the following about Nnamdi Asomugha's preferred destination:

"Dallas, Philadelphia, Houston, New York Jets longshot. Hear he wants Jets"

Well of course he wants the Jets, why wouldn't he want to join a Super Bowl contender to form the greatest starting duo of corners potentially in NFL history? The question really is, just how bad does he want the Jets? They won't be able to offer him the same money as the other interested teams but do offer a better overall situation if winning and being on an elite defense are his top priorities.

I am sure Mike Tannenbaum will at least make a phone call to explore pursuing Asomugha. The Jets would likely have to sacrifice at other positions, but it could be worth it to strengthen their secondary by such a substantial margin.
