SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - A fresh start in a familiar place is bringing out the best in Nnamdi Asomugha.
The four-time All-Pro cornerback felt right at home Saturday as the San Francisco 49ers practiced in pads for the first time in training camp, using the size and press-coverage skills that made him a star during his first stint in the Bay Area.
Asomugha is looking to regain the form at age 32 that made him one of the NFL's elite defensive players during his first eight seasons with the Oakland Raiders.
And the defending NFC champion 49ers are looking for an upgrade in their secondary, which struggled in the playoffs during the team's run to the Super Bowl last season before losing All-Pro safety Dashon Goldson to free agency earlier this spring.
