g-dawg Posted July 8, 2011 Share Posted July 8, 2011 AsoAsoAsoAso.....Would you guys quit being "Aso's" and forget about him.Nnamdi Asoumugha is going to get a 5yr deal at $15mil/yr - he will be making more than Matt Ryan.As great as Aso is, he will be 30yrs old to start the season and he will be in decline in about two years - so you will be overpaying for 3 of the 5 years of the contract.Brent Grimes and Dunta Robinson are probably a better combo of corners than 70-80% of the NFL corners out there. The problem is a lack of pass rush and a passive defensive scheme. To fix the defense we need:1) To sign a DE (Charles Johnson, Ray Edwards or Jason Babin)2) Stay Healthy3) More aggressive secondary coverage (more bump-n-run)4) Better disguised Blitzes5) further development of a healthy Sean Weatherspoon.We don't need Aso. Besides that, we are back in the salary cap area that many of you have forgotten because there was no salary cap the last year or two. While Aso might permanently fix the secondary, the Falcons would start leaking in other areas with the inability to spend money at other position needs.
