07:54 PM ET 02.26 | Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is currently trying to save as much money as he can while the Eagles chip away at his $15 million base salary for 2013. But at a time when Asomugha's contract could be ripped up, a report has surfaced that paints the cornerback as aloof. According to Hollis Thomas of 94WIP in Philadelphia, Asomugha used to eat his lunches alone in his car so he could get away from his teammates. It's interesting that this story is coming out now. since Asomugha's future with the Eagles is already in flux. But if he's as cold and distant as the report says he is, it's hard to believe the Eagles will be bending over backward to get him to stay in Philly. The Eagles are prepared to cut Asomugha if they can't get his salary for the 2013 season well below the $15 million it's at right now and Asomugha's play alone the last few years is all the justification the Eagles need to be in the position they're in now with the cornerback. Add Asomugha's anti-social tactics into the mix and it's looking less and less likely that the two sides will agree on a salary reduction.

I bet he ate alone in his car because he didn't want to share his fries.

If the guy is that bad with his money, then Mark Brunell has a couple dozen investments he'd love to sell him.

He avoided his teammates because they couldn't pronounce his name.

He's no longer the player that he was for the Raiders.
