ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Eagles have released Asomugha today.
Asomugha was a colossal failure in Philadelphia. He came to the Eagles after spending eight years with the Oakland Raiders. He signed a five-year, $60 million deal in July 2011. He record three interceptions with 40 tackles in his first season in Philadelphia. Many believed that Asomugha underperformed in 2011 and would regain form in 2012 playing in press coverage. That was not to be as 2012 was a complete disaster for almost every Eagle. Asomugha had one interception and looked like he had lost all foot speed. At 31 years old, Asomugha appears to be on the down side of his career.
I think it is safe to say that Eagles fans are happy about the move to rid the team of their “shutdown” corner.
