Nnamdi Asomugha Says 2 Years In Philly Shook His Confidence
Nnamdi Asomugha is trying to find himself again as a football player.
Asomugha signed with the Eagles during the 2011 off-season, and was a consensus top two cornerback in the game, and a rich man after getting a $60 million deal in exchange.
Fast forward two years, and Asomugha is in San Francisco fighting for his football life. Asomugha is no longer considered the top corner in the game or on any team.
Asomugha is a has been in some eyes, and extremely washed up in others. Nnamdi has admitted to some that “his experience in Philadelphia shook his confidence,” but according to the Sacramento Bee, he’s still confident in those skills.
“I’ve been out there making plays and doing a lot of the things that I know I can do,” the 32-year-old cornerback said. “So my confidence is in a good place.”
“I’m highly critical of myself – highly, highly critical of myself,” he said. “So there’s not much that someone else might say that makes me feel like I need to be motivated in a different way. Like I said, I’m a self-motivated guy. And I’m probably saying worse (things) than the next guy’s saying anyway.”
