Texans to Make a Big Push for All-Pro CB Nnamdi Asomugha

The Texans indeed are prepared to be aggressive in free agency, according to league sources, and will be among the teams pursuing All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha. While awaiting a collective bargaining agreement and new free-agency rules, it’s very difficult to gauge the market and how high the price for a top cornerback will go, but look for the Texans to closely monitor that market and determine if the price point on Asomugha fits their budget.

The secondary is an area in need of upgrade, and the Texans routinely have been willing to spend under dedicated owner Bob McNair. Asomugha, who has spent his entire NFL career with the Oakland Raiders, is far and away the premier cornerback available this year, but the Bengals’ Jonathan Joseph is another option. Houston also is looking for safety help, and Gerald Sensabaugh is a logical free-agent candidate.
