Nnamdi Asomugha Retires, Shows How Short NFL Careers Really Are
One of the best acronyms in sports is the one used to describe the NFL. Due to the game’s fast-paced nature many ex-football players replace National Football League with Not For Long. And in all reality; the game of football isn’t meant to be played for more than six or seven years. In fact, if a non-quarterback can stay in the league for longer than five years, then it’s considered an accomplishment of sorts. According to those standards, Nnamdi Asomugha had a heck of an NFL career as the cornerback lasted 11 years and was an All-Pro for three of them.
However, the problem with Asomugha is that he never could go from a good player to a great one. Now, that wouldn’t have been such an issue had the Philadelphia Eagles not signed Asomugha to a five-year, $60 million contract. When signing a deal like that; a player is not only expected to be great he’s also not allowed to fail — which is exactly what Asomugha did.
So while many Oakland Raiders fan will remember Asomugha in a positive light; many NFL fans will forever remember the cornerback as an overrated player on a team full of overrated players. Needless to say, the NFL career of Asomugha didn’t end well, yet he still has something to hang his hat on considering the 11-year veteran was a highly revered defensive back during his time.
