In all seriousness if we don't sign Asomugah(Posted by Zoltan on 3/18/13 at 8:22 pm)
Since we are obviously targeting a second corner hard, what other corners may we be looking at? I've lost so much focus today after all the shennanigans I have forgotten who else is out there at this point.

Brent Grimes -- With virtually all of the young, healthy corners taken off the market, interest is picking up in rehabbing, 30-year-old Grimes. He visited the Dolphins on Friday and Browns on Saturday, and the Falcons remain squarely in the running. Because Grimes tore his Achilles' tendon last September, teams' initial offers probably consisted mostly of incentive-laden deals. Grimes figures to sign with the club that offers him the most guaranteed money.
Antoine Winfield -- Winfield was so shocked by his March 12 release that he needed a week to "decompress." He spent the last nine years in Minnesota, earning three Pro Bowl trips and grading out in 2012 as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 cornerback. Winfield can still play, though he shouldn't expect much money in an incredibly watered-down cornerback market. At 36, Winfield will be looking to sign with a Super Bowl contender. He'd make a ton of sense in Seattle.
Mike Jenkins -- There are plenty of reasons to dislike Jenkins. He's not a physical player. He's been injury prone. He didn't play much in Dallas last year. But Jenkins is a 28-year-old former first-round pick with a Pro Bowl on his resume, and enough god-given ability to rejuvenate his career in the right spot. NFL teams can never have too many talented cornerbacks.
DeAngelo Hall -- Hall seems like he's been around forever, but he's still only 29. A report he'd signed with the Lions proved erroneous. Hall is generating scant interest on the open market. The Redskins would take him back, but only at a significantly reduced salary.
E.J. Biggers -- Still developing, 25-year-old Biggers ran a 4.32 forty at Western Michigan's 2009 Pro Day. He's long and lean at 6-foot, 185, and graded out in 2012 as a top-20 cover corner in Pro Football Focus' ratings. Biggers has been getting no free-agency love.
Pacman Jones -- Although Jones held up well as Cincinnati's nickel back last season, playing right corner in all sub-packages, he doesn't have many friends left in the NFL. Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer is one of the few and wants to bring Pacman back.

Thread Starter Saints likely landing spot for Nnamdi Aaomugha per John Clayton John Clayton at the owners meetings just reported on ESPN that he had an excellent visit with the Saints and it looks like because of slightly more money and better system fit the Saints are most likely to be the landing spot for Nnamdi Aaomugha.
