49ers sign Nnamdi Asomugha
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (NAHM'-dee AH'-suhm-wah) has reached agreement on a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers that could pay him as much as $3 million this year.
Asomugha's representative, Ben Dogra, says Asomugha is expected to sign his new deal Wednesday. He was busy taking high school students around his native Bay Area on Tuesday in an effort to show them their future options and college choices.
Dogra says Asomugha met with the 49ers two times during the past two weeks.
The former All-Pro was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on March 12 after two disappointing seasons - and now he is ready to help the 49ers return to the Super Bowl and win after losing 34-31 to the Ravens on Feb. 3 in New Orleans.
