Tuesday, WIP host and former Eagles lineman Hollis Thomas reported that Nnamdi Asomugha did not eat lunch with the rest of the team in 2012, but rather chose to eat in his car by himself. His reasoning? Nnamdi needed some “me time.”
At first I looked at this and said, who really cares? But the more I thought about it Nnamdi Asomugha is a people person. Nnamdi is a guy who has done tons of work in the community( in both Oakland and Philly), and appeared as a guest analyst on NFL Live. So for him to eat by himself, not just once, but on a rather consistent basis just comes off as him being disgusted with a team, that he didn’t perform well on at all.
Could the Eagles restructure his deal? Yeah they could, but why would they? As more stories like this come out, it reminds us all how dreadful the past two seasons were in Philly(as if we needed to be reminded), and that like I said last week, Nnamdi Asomugha has become a cancer. The Eagles need to take their losses, cut Nnamdi, and hope that it is addition by subtraction.
