More than any other team, the Houston Texans have made waves about signing Nnamdi Asomugha.
Whether it be through sources within the organization its locked out players, the Texans seem keenly interested in acquiring the Oakland Raiders free agent to be.
Quarterback Matt Schaub is the latest Texan to get onboard the Asomugha lobbying train.
“I totally think it would be a great fit for him,” Schaub said this week on SiriusXM NFL Radio (via PFT). “A lot of us on the team know him fairly well. We played Oakland it seems like every year, at least since I’ve been in the organization for the last four years so we know him well. Him and Andre [Johnson] have a good relationship so I definitely see it as a great fit for him.”
The aforementioned Andre Johnson was the first to lobby the Texans to sign Asomugha back in May.
Schaub, meanwhile, is realistic in knowing the Texans will face stiff competition in vying for his services. The cornerback is this year’s Crown Jewel of free agency.
“I think about 1500 other guys across the league are going to try to recruit him for sure,” Schaub said. “But I think we definitely will do our part . . . he’s a tremendous player, arguably the best corner in the game and so he can definitely help us and really help shut down half of the field.”
