NFL Free agency doesn’t start until Sunday, and news will be coming fast and furious as players are signed, cut and traded, and a former All-Pro cornerback is now on the market. Howard Eskin is reporting the Philadelphia Eagles will release Nnamdi Asomugha today. Asomugha was due to make $15 million. The Eagles will have to pay Asomugha $4 million if they cut him. This comes less than two years after Asomugha agreed to a five-year, $60 million deal with $25 million guaranteed with Philly.
The Dolphins, with nearly $40 million in salary cap space, are well-positioned to land Wallace’s services and give their young franchise QB Ryan Tannehill a go-to receiver. Wallace has 32 touchdown catches in his first 63 games. He has gone over 1,200 yards in a season twice.
