Eagles Release CB Nnamdi Asomugha

The Philadelphia Eagles have released cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, just two years after he was the NFL’s most sought-after free agent.

The Eagles announced the move in a statement Tuesday. General manager Howie Roseman says he and new coach Chip Kelly spoke to Asomugha and “he took the news with a lot of class.” Roseman says the Eagles talked to Asomugha’s agents at the NFL combine in Indianapolis last month about the cornerback’s future with the team. “In the end,” Roseman says, “Coach and I both felt we needed to move in a different direction at the cornerback position for 2013 and beyond.”

Asomugha was due to make $15 million this season, including $4 million guaranteed, after signing a five-year, $60 million deal with the Eagles in 2011.
