Asomugha day two update: Jets interest is serious, Bucs may be out

N. Asomugha1

Nnamdi Asomugha’s first day on the sorta open market was relatively quiet. Expect that to change Wednesday.

From NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi:

“I keep hearing from well placed relible NFL sources that this Jet talk and Nmandi Asomugha is serious and I mean serious,” Lombardi wrote on Twitter.

A report from’s Tom Kowalski echoed the sentiment. Kowalski is a Lions beat writer, so it’s possible Detroit has heard that Asomugha is set on exploring his options in New York before entertaining other ideas.

Tampa Bay made some sense as a destination, but they don’t sound interested. First: They are keeping Aqib Talib. Second, G.M. Mark Dominik had this to say when asked about Asomugha:

“The way we’ve been building this football team . . . over the last couple of years, I think there’s a blueprint that’s already sitting in front of you all, and we’re going to follow that blueprint,’' Dominik said via the St. Petersburg Times.

While we’re still just in the rumor stage, it’s worth remembering the Jets blueprint too: They like to make a big splash.
