We just posted that the Jets appear to be the favorites and that there hasn’t been a whole lot of interest from other teams and then this report surfaces.
Lombardi adds that the Houston Texans are likely to be in play as well but the 49ers and Jets are the clear cut favorites as of now.
This would be a huge addition for the 49ers as they are going to be without some key players from their roster. Cornerback is huge need for them and signing the one of the best players at the position would definitely be a win. Nate Clements has been rumored to be on the chopping block which would give them the necessary room to sign Asomugha.
I still wouldn’t consider the 49ers the favorites but there’s a shot that they could land him.
