    Cassel for Asomugha seems like a no brainer to me, both franchise their players and do a simple trade.

    Question is, is there still bad blood between Al "The Hotel" Davis and BB? Remember Al accused the Pats of tampering with Moss then couldn't come up with proof to back it up, so they lost face over it.

    Cassel is more fundamentally sound than Russell. He would bring the Raiders closer to a winning record and do far more than Asomugha could ever do.

    But then again, Al Davis was never known for his common sense.

    Ashmougha is better than Cromartie or Jammer or pretty much anyone SD has in their secondary. Cromartie is the hype. How good can he be when the Broncos put 25+ points on the board ? The stats bring it out. Ashmougha is the best player on the Raiders. That said, I really don't see him playing for the Pats in 09.

    Before you think about acquiring Ashmougha please remember that he'll get 9-10 per yr. and Wilfork and Mankins will want their money too.

    What's the deal with franchising a player a second time? I thought they couldn't or is it the amount of money they would have to pay.

    If they slap the tag on a player a second time they have to pay him the higher of the franchise number or 120% of his previous year's salary. So unless the tag number goes up by 20% the team has to pay more than the going rate.

    The same logic which many here use to claim NE should tag Cassel. If the Raiders had needed a QB there could have been a sweet deal. And we all know how senile Al is getting. BB could possibly talk him down in the compensation department, especially if Asomugah declares he will sit out the season. He talks great about Moss, and my guess is he'd love to be his teammate again. The question is, how willing is he to forgo the "top" dollar to do it? It would be a great addition, though it doesn't look likely to happen. But I recall thinking (and I wasn't the only one here) that there was no way AD would sign here, yet he did. We shall have to wait and see.

    [Quote]Bub,

    We can hope. If he is comfortable signing a three-five year offer for the seven million per that Asante was offered, with the obvious advantage of playing DEEP in the postseason every year then it could work.

    He would answer a LOT of problem this defense has. Man to man, bump and run, moving the top CB to the top WR, and freeing up a safety. Those are all issues we had even with Asante.

    Wow. A great corner makes everything easier.[/Quote]

    ZB and Bub. I could be wrong ( I sometimes am when it comes to other team's players) but I think the Ravens have Suggs, Lewis, and Dawon Landry as FAs. I could live with the Pats getting one of those. I think Ashmugha is out of the Pats price range. And BB tends to value LBs more than DBs (I like Suggs as a pass rushing OLB). Through Free Agency and the 09 draft the Pats have to acquire replacements for the aging vets. Like most I believe the pass rush complements the secodary and vice versa. I just believe that Belichick would improve the pass rush before improving the secondary.

    JHR you're full of it on this one. Cromartie & Jammer are both better than this guy. Ive watched Asmo closely since he came in the league & I find that this thread is downright humerous. Shoot make him an all pro ricky. LOL

    LOOK: 2 tackles a game/ 2 ints per season.

    ricky12684 is his agent me thinks

    Seems like BB has a "Man Crush" on Asomugha. When discussing the Raiders talents to the Globe, he was raving about him. Usually, when BB does this, it is to send a message that they intend to go after him. I remember him doing the same thing with Adalius Thomas prior to getting him in free agency.

    That's pure "salesmanship"! Giving someone the "warm & fuzzy's" prior to offering them a contract.

    I have a good feeling about the Pats getting him.

    he also has that "Man Crush" on Ed Reed... i think he's a FA too... it would be a dream come true to get one, let alone two...
