The challenge: taking more than 1,000 players and sorting them onto 32 rosters, working out contracts that must be signed and then processed by the league office, with every deal from rookies to free agents fitting under the salary cap and falling within the other boundaries of the new, still-being-understood labor agreement _ and, getting all this done in time for the start of the preseason, preferably by the start of training camp.

We mentioned last night that the Texans were working hard to sign either Nnamdi Asomugha or Johnathan Joseph last night.

According to NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi, Houston is now in the “lead” for Asomugha’s services. He believes the deal would average between $12-14 million per season.

That’s actually less than many anticipated for Asomugha, but the bidding hasn’t ended. And the numbers are already higher than the Jets pay Darrelle Revis.

We have a hard time believing the Jets would pay Asomugha more than Revis because of the problems that could create. If Asomugha really wants to play in New York, he may have to take less money to do so.
