Today, the San Francisco 49ers released veteran cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. Although it wasn’t much of a surprise considering the depth on the 49ers roster and all the young talent that they have, one team that could be desperate for his services are the Minnesota Vikings.
Despite being a poor scheme fit, Minnesota is desperate to find something that can help this struggling secondary. Rookie Xavier Rhodes has been shouldering a lot of the load, followed by the struggling A.J. Jefferson and Josh Robinson. If nothing, Asomugha could act as a mentor for the young players hoping to make a name for themselves in the league.
The Vikings could easily handle Asomugha’s $1 million base salary if they claim him off waivers. This is a move that the Vikings should try their hardest to pull the trigger on.
