General Manager Trent Baalke mentioned that Wright’s return means “these guys are all fighting for postions right now.”
While Baalke did not mention that Asomugha is most likely to be cut, he has dropped down the 49ers depth chart to the No. 5 corner and has been a healthy scratch for the past three games.
Asomugha’s decline continues as he goes from being one of the best defensive backs in the league just a few years ago, to a liability as a player. At this point in his career, it’s hard to say if Asomugha would get another shot in the league after what was a horrible go of things in Philadelphia and then being marginalized in San Francisco.
It’s worth noting that the Saints did show a lot of interest in him during the offseason, but they may not be in the market for a corner at this point in time.
