Also official: 1. It will expand. 2. It will create all manner of problems and controversies, solving nothing. 3. It will suck, but not enough to stop me from loving a sport that doesn't love me back, which has been true of just about every change in college football in my adult lifetime.
Rotoworld.com: In an NFL.com chat Wednesday, NFL Network's Jason La Canfora suggested that Nnamdi Asomugha could command a contract in free agency that approaches $19 million a year. It'd make him the highest paid player in NFL history. Our projection in the spring was $72 million over five years ($14.4 million annually), but it appears we were too conservative. It's worth noting that Asomugha's last contract was for $45.3 million across three seasons, with $28.5 million guaranteed. La Canfora believes the Bucs could be serious bidders for Asomugha, pointing to their "pretty massive" proposal to Albert Haynesworth in February of 2009, and need to reach the salary cap "floor" in the new CBA. Speculation, sure. But the possibility bothers me quite a lot. He's better than Revis. We don't need that headache in the division, even allowing for the Panters.
