Nnamdi Asomugha’s role on the San Francisco 49ers is one of the most fascinating storylines set to unfold in 2013, according to NFL.com’s Adam Schein, who named the 11-year veteran cornerback as the No. 4 most fascinating player to track in 2013.
Asomugha, 32, has spoken positively about his early experience with the 49ers. The four-time All-Pro cornerback told reporters that he likes San Francisco’s defensive scheme and has instantly fit in well with new teammates in the locker room.
Comfort is one thing, but many NFL observers are curious to see how Asomugha will perform in his return to the Bay Area.
Count Schein in the group.
“This offseason, however, Asomugha signed with arguably the most talented team in the NFL, to play on arguably the most talented defense in the NFL,” Schein wrote. “Plus, Niners coach Jim Harbaugh has a way of bringing out the best in players. Asomugha escaped Philly after being the poster child for disaster, returned to the Bay Area and just got married. I am fascinated to see which Nnamdi we get this year.”
