    Steelers not going after Nnamdi Asomugha

    According to the National Football Post:

    The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't planning to pursue Oakland Raiders free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has comnfirmed.


    Asomugha is the top free agent available regardless of position.


    And the Steelers are more likely to re-sign cornerback Ike Taylor than go after Asomugha.
    Asomugha's $45.3 million contract has voided due to him not reaching certain playing time and performance level clauses in his deal.

    If this holds true then Ike Taylor can pretty much be handed a blank check and fill in the numbers accordingly. We've seen things like this before, and something ends up happening days or weeks later and a player shows up on the roster. However in this case I don't know that the Steelers ever even considered a move like bringing in Nnamdi; the price tag would be too steep for a free agent.

    Not surprising. I wouldn't expect them to make a splash in free agency until some bigger names leave/retire.

    Any fan who really sat down and thought about it knew the Steelers were never going to seriously spend 40+ million on a free agent anyway. I agree though K train, it would be a sick unit with Ike and Nnamdi back there..dayum!!!

    Wasn't Ike Taylor here last year? And he was getting torched up with the other guys wasn't he? Sorry,...but the truth is that the secondary needs to be upgraded or every team we play will pass on every down.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I never thought for one minute that the Steelers were going to sign Nnamdi Asomugha and I thought all the talk from some of our fans was just plain silly.......It would be nice but its just not the Steelers way....I think they will resign Ike and wouldn't be shocked if they signed a 2nd tier FA corner......

    Sign Carlos Rogers. Ike and Rogers lined up opposite of each other with Brown in the slot and Butler in dime would be a nice backfield.
