08:04 AM ET 08.02 | Philadelphia may be great, but the Bay Area had become home for Nnamdi Asomugha. [Asomugha] confessed that the sudden end to his eight-year Raiders career still stings. ... By last Friday, Asomugha said he hadn't received an offer from the Raiders, so he was advised by his agents to move forward. "There was contact," Asomugha said, "but nothing was able to be worked out." For the first time, Asomugha contemplated life with another team. "Pretty tough would be an understatement," Asomugha said. "It was pretty tough because I never thought about that. I never seriously thought about that possibility, leaving the team, leaving the organization, leaving the state."

One thing for sure, Nnamdi... you won't confuse the Iggles owner with the Raiders owner.

And he can't find the box with his Kaopectate in it, either.

He misses those sweet kisses goodnight when Al tucked him in.

He looks more than "unsettled" in the photo. Maybe constipated?

I'm thinking the opposite. He should have gone to a team that wears brown pants.

More than likely caught a whiff of his new home city..:-(

In all honesty - with what Philly's been doing this off-season, 31 other teams are probably the ones who should be "unsettled" by the move.

Buck up, Nnamdi, you'll be okay little camper...

August 2, 2011  08:43 AM ET

a good actor indeed

August 2, 2011  08:53 AM ET

Are you kidding? Leaving the joke franchise of the league? The crazy, babbling, embarassing owner? Leaving a perennial loser for a chance at a SB?

Yeah, that would be unsettling.

I was saying yesterday that he is gonna have a problem when he realizes he has to LIVE in Philly too....
