Posted 8 Nov 2013Green Day: Just say no to Nnamdi
By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com
So cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is a free agent and a lot of folks on Twitter believe the New York Jets should pursue him. Hello? This isn't 2011.
The Mike Tannenbaum-led Jets breathlessly courted Asomugha in 2011 during the lockout-shortened free-agency period before training camp, offering him $10 million per year (a shade below Darrelle Revis) on a multi-year contract. Luckily for the Jets, he decided to take his talents to South Philly, signing with the Eagles, who quickly realized his skills had eroded.
The San Francisco 49ers took a one-year flyer on Asomugha; he played in only three games and was released earlier this week. He's 32 years old and hasn't played well since 2010. Once regarded as the best corner in the NFL, Asomugha was rated 103rd at his position last season by ProFootballFocus. He allowed a 67 percent completion rate and five touchdown passes, per PFF.
He makes no sense for the Jets. He'd be what Bill Parcells used to call a "progress stopper." You bring in a player like Asomugha, and suddenly he's stealing time from a young player. They have a talented but inconsistent rookie in Dee Milliner, in whom they invested a guaranteed $12.7 million, and he needs to play. He displayed signs of progress last Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, perhaps a turning point. Kyle Wilson is solid as the slot corner. Barring injury, Asomugha would be the fourth corner on the Jets. If you haven't noticed, they don't use a lot of four-corner packages anymore.
I'd be surprised if general manager John Idzik makes a play for Asomugha, a once-great player who is unemployed for a reason.
Posted 5 Nov 2013Ever since we were snubed by Nnamdi Asomugha when he went to Philly Jets fans have smiled as Antonio Cromartie has gotten better and better while Asomugha has fallen out of favor. He was a disaster in Philly and a even bigger failure in San Francisco. However could bringing him into the Jets now make sense??? Asomugha was always considered a system player that the system he played in made him better then he was. However he was Very good in that system maybe no better then in 2008 when he allowed 16 completions and no TDs all year. Now who was the mastermind of the system that made Asomugha that good that year Rob Ryan. Now despite being twin Rex and Rob are not identical their defensive schemes have some differences. However they are both predicated on man to man coverage with pressure on the QB. In Philly he was asked to play way to much zone and in San Fran he was used in the nickle which he is ill equipped for as well. Nnamdi is a big bodied strait line speed CB which lends him to aggressive man to man on the outside. I'm not saying Nnamdi will work out to be a pro-bowler with the Jets but bringing him in for a look is low risk high reward. If he could be half as good as he was in 2008 he would be a huge upgrade over the Millner/ Walls combo we are working with now.

NY Jets rookie QB Geno Smith named AFC offensive player of the week
Smith completed 16 of 20 passes for 199 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers in the come-from-behind win over the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night.
BY SETH WALDER / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
As a result of his stellar performance in the Jets 30-28 win over the Falcons on Monday Night, Geno Smith was named the AFC offensive player of the week.
The Jets rookie quarterback completed 16 of 20 passes for 199 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers in the primetime game. He lead the Jets downfield in the final two minutes for his second fourth-quarter comeback of the season.
Smith is just the second rookie quarterback in the past 20 seasons to earn a player of the week award in his first five weeks. Redskins QB Robert Griffin III earned the honor last season.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- He is the Sanchise no more.
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez "will require shoulder surgery," and is likely headed for injured reserve, so his stormy career with the team is all but over, a person with knowledge of his condition told USA TODAY Sports.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Jets have not announced the extent of Sanchez's injury. The Jets would not comment Thursday on the diagnosis or the course of treatment.
Sanchez injured his shoulder in a preseason game against the New York Giants and sought a second opinion. He was examined Wednesday by Dr. James Andrews, and the surgeon diagnosed the tear and told the quarterback that he had two options -- surgery or rehab.
But Andrews told Sanchez that surgery was the best option, the person said.
Sanchez insisted Thursday that he has chosen treatment for his throwing shoulder, but the person said it's just a matter of time before the surgery is performed.
A second person with knowledge of the situation, who also requested anonymity because the team hasn't addressed the diagnosis, told USA TODAY Sports that Sanchez will continue to rehab his shoulder and no decision has been made about surgery yet, and that surgery is not imminent.
Last week, as Sanchez and the Jets scrambled to get a definitive diagnosis, Sanchez told people around him that he was worried the Jets wanted to place him on IR and "be done with him."
The Jets are allowed to designate one player to return from injured reserve after Week 8, but it's unlikely that would be Sanchez. The team has handed the starting job to rookie Geno Smith, while stockpiling quarterbacks Matt Simms and Brady Quinn.
As Sanchez's career with the Jets is ending, another is just beginning. After helping the Jets pull off an improbable comeback in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Smith will make the second start of his career Thursday night, when the Jets face the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass.
Sanchez appeared for the start of practice Tuesday, throwing only with his left arm. Those could be his last tosses for the Jets with either hand.
When asked last week about possibly putting Sanchez on IR, coach Rex Ryan said the team was not contemplating that at the time, "but absolutely things can change."
General manager John Idzik, in his most recent comments on Sanchez on Sept. 4, said: "No, we're not looking at that. We're looking at Mark continuing to rehab. We said it's day-to-day. It's very unpredictable sometimes. Mark knows his body better than anybody else. He's working very hard and so hopefully we'll get him back here soon."
Before visiting Andrews, Sanchez said, "We're getting every opinion possible. I think it's prudent."
Sanchez's diagnosis was first reported by ESPN, which also said surgery was "likely," but Sanchez quickly responded by saying, "If I needed surgery right now, I never would have left Andrews' office. I would've stayed and got the surgery."
The stumbling block to discarding Sanchez has been his salary. He counts $12.9 million against the 2013 salary cap, and if he is released, he also would count $4.8 million against the cap in 2014.
Before his injury, the Jets might have been able to trade Sanchez, but they likely would have had to absorb most of his contract to make him marketable. The shoulder injury takes that possibility -- which was remote to start -- off the table.
