Nnamdi Asomugha to retire with Raiders
By Paul Gutierrez
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Nnamdi Asomugha, a first-round draft pick of the Oakland Raiders in 2003 who spent the first eight seasons of his NFL career in Oakland, will sign a ceremonial one-day contract with the Raiders on Friday and retire as a member of the organization, the team announced Thursday night.
Asomugha left Oakland after the 2010 season and signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was cut after two seasons in Philadelphia, and signed this past offseason with the San Francisco 49ers. He appeared in only three games with the 49ers and was cut on Nov. 4.
Asomugha, 32, had 11 of his 15 career interceptions with the Raiders and finished his career with 80 passes defensed. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection as well as a two-time All-Pro in Oakland.
