Houston columnist hears Asomugha “doesn’t want any part” of Texans

Texans have a huge need a cornerback and arguably the best cornerback in football will be available in free agency. It only makes sense that there would be some speculation in Houston about going after him.

A few days back, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle wrote “of course” the Texans will pursue Asomugha. He just doubts they’ll get him, because Asomugha could end up being the highest paid defensive player in history.

There’s another reason why Asomugha may not land in Houston.

“Word is Asomugha doesn’t want any part of our little corner of paradise,” Richard Justice of the same paper writes. “Really? Well, buddy boy, I’ve got about 30 million reasons you might just change your mind.”

We’d expect the theory that Asomugha doesn’t like the Texans to be shot down at some point, regardless of whether it’s true. Eliminating potential landing spots won’t help Asomugha become the highest paid defensive player in the league.
