  49ers | Nnamdi Asomugha waived    Mon Nov 4, 04:50 PM

The San Francisco 49ers have officially waived CB Nnamdi Asomugha.

Footballguys view: Asomugha is no longer the player he used to be, and he hasn't been for some time. The 49ers had to make a move here to clear a spot for Eric Wright. Asomugha will hit waivers and there may not be much of a market for him as he struggles against the pass and the run at this point in his career.

  49ers | Tramaine Brock locks up No. 3 CB job    Tue Oct 8, 12:10 AM

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers CB Tramaine Brock played so well in Week 5 against the Houston Texans, head coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed Monday, Oct. 7, that Brock has earned the right to remain the team's No. 3 cornerback ahead of CB Nnamdi Asomugha (knee). 'Really pleased with the way Tramaine is ascending,' Harbaugh said. 'When you play like that, you're going to continue to play.' Brock has two interceptions in Week 5, including a pick that was returned for a score.

  49ers | Nnamdi Asomugha expects a lot of playing time    Fri Sep 6, 06:54 PM

San Francisco 49ers CB Nnamdi Asomugha (collarbone) said he expects to receive a lot of playing time Week 1 because he believes the Green Bay Packers will be throwing a lot during the game. He said he will learn Saturday, Sept. 7, if he needs to wear any support for his injured collarbone.

Footballguys view: The Packers will surely be in a three-wide set most of the time, which will put Asomugha in the line of fire. He was a shadow of his old self for the Eagles last year, so it will be interesting to see if Aaron Rodgers tests the one-time shutdown corner often early in this contest.

  49ers | Nnamdi Asomugha to play Week 1    Thu Sep 5, 02:56 PM

San Francisco 49ers CB Nnamdi Asomugha (collarbone) is expected to play and serve as the team's third cornerback in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Even as the third corner, Asomugha could see work as the Green Bay Packers will throw the ball often. He's definitely lost a step but is a much better fit in San Francisco's scheme than he ever was in Philadelphia's.

  49ers | Backup options at corner spot    Mon Aug 5, 02:18 AM

With the season-ending injury to CB Chris Culliver (knee), the San Francisco 49ers are searching for other options at the corner spot. CB's Tramaine Brock and Nnamdi Asomugha have been mentioned as possible replacements, but the team may take a second look at CB Eric Wright, who was to join the 49ers in a trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before Wright failed his physical.

  49ers | Nnamdi Asomugha will have to compete for roster spot    Mon May 6, 02:12 PM

San Francisco 49ers CB Nnamdi Asomugha likely will have to win a role over CB Carlos Rogers, CB Tarell Brown or CB Chris Culliver during training camp to win a roster spot since he does not play on special teams. The team did not give Asomugha any guaranteed money in his deal, which means he has to compete for a roster spot.

Footballguys view: Asomugha is hoping a change of scenery will do him some good. He lost his confidence during his time with the Eagles but gets a fresh start with the 49ers. Playing behind that dominant front seven should bring his confidence back.

  49ers | Nnamdi Asomugha signs    Tue Apr 2, 06:10 PM

The San Francisco 49ers signed free-agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha (Eagles) to a one-year, $3 million deal Tuesday, April 2.

Footballguys view: Asomugha isn't the same player he used to be and is hoping to give his career a bounce back with the 49ers. He lost his confidence with the Eagles and was constantly exposed in coverage. The 49ers have a better pass rush and overall defense so he could play stronger than he did with the Eagles.
