The Saints could be the front-runners for landing free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and the mutual respect between he and Rob Ryan could be the deciding factor.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk has a source close to Asomugha saying Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is very interested in the free agent cornerback and is making a "big push" to land Nnamdi in New Orleans.
Even better, the feelings between Ryan and Asomugha are mutual.
Said the source of Asomugha's attitude toward Ryan: "[Asomugha] loves him and trusts him.
This could be a big signing. Nnamdi is currently visiting with the 49ers, but if he leaves San Francisco without an offer, it looks like the Saints are front runners in the Asomugha sweepstakes.
