Eagles Release CB Nnamdi Asomugha

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Tuesday that they did "part ways" with cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha shortly before the NFL's free agency period began.

Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman was quoted by the team as saying, "[Nnamdi Asomugha] has been a true pro on and off the field for this organization and our community. … We wish [Asomugha] all the best as he continues his NFL career."

The team's management also says they "look ahead to NFL Free Agency at 4 p.m."

Unofficial tallies have the team with about $35 million to $40 million to spend under the league's salary cap, after releasing Asomugha.

And the team has plenty of needs on defense, especially in the secondary. Among the targets they could be looking at are Miami cornerback Sean Smith, or safeties LaRon Landry of the Jets and or Dashon Goldson of the 49ers.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
