Evening AFC West notes

AFC East blogger Tim Graham suggests that it is “remote” that the New York Jets will sign Oakland Raiders’ free-agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

I know a lot of people would love to see an Asomugha-Darrelle Revis tandem. But that would be awfully difficult to financially maneuver.

Even if the Jets don’t come calling, plenty of teams will pursue Asomugha. Still, don’t count Oakland out of the Asomugha sweepstakes. Perhaps the longer the lockout goes, the better the Raiders’ chances of keeping Asomugha become.

It could be difficult for many free agents to leave for a new team if the lockout ends shortly before the regular season for personal reasons and it could be a factor in a player staying put if the terms are similar.
