Nnamdi Asomugha On Fitting In And Not Being Able To Practice

Nnamdi Asomugha was a guest of Macnow and Gargano on WIP for his first local radio interview this week and covered a few topics. We've mostly already heard about how/why he came to Philadelphia, but he did have some interesting things to say about how he fits with the other corners and how he feels about not being allowed to practice.

First, on the issue of having three corners, Nnamdi's response seems to be that there is no issue. It's not a problem  that needs to be fixed.

"I mean, what it does for us is it gives us flexibility, allows us to move around, and allows us to put our top talents on the field at the same time. So I definitely think it's going to work in our favor. And as far as I'm concerned, I can play anywhere. Wherever they want me to play, I can play and do a good job for the squad. So I just let him know that because I didn't want to let this become a ‘let's really try to figure this out' type of issue. I'm here, I'm flexible, I've played it all before, I can do it all again. I've played all over the field in Oakland, so I've done it."

He also explained how frustrating it's been to be at camp, but to not be able to participate until the new CBA is officially ratified (expected to happen this afternoon).

"Yeah, because you feel like my legs will be fine, my wind will be fine. But you don't know, we haven't done anything; we've just been watching so. So trying to learn and see it and get everything full speed, it will be good to finally get out there and do that. But the defensive coaches have been great at giving us all the information we need to be prepared, and everybody is loud and fiery and just excited out there. So it's a good mix."
