Yesterday, I wrote on the Pro Bowl controversy surrounding statements by Nnamdi Asomugha that were quoted by ESPN. The more I thought about it, the more I remembered Asomugha being asked about recruiting other players at the Pro Bowl to come to the Raiders.
Turns out, I was right. He was asked if he would be actively recruiting other Pro Bowlers to come to the Raiders. This is what he said:
If a guy wants to come here, I’m bringing him along. It’s building talent and that’s what we have to do here. And I can show them I have the facts, I can show them the games we did win and what we did offensively, defensively in comparison to the games we didn’t win and that’s something we can build off of. I think guys will be able to get behind that. We have talent and guys should appreciate that.
Not necessarily the type of answer you’d expect to get from a guy ‘wanting’ out of Oakland.
