Nigerian NFL Star Nnamdi Asomugha Retires From Professional Football

Oakland Raiders’ Nnamdi Asomugha has announced his retirement from professional football.

He played eight seasons with the Raiders and was once considered one of the top-two corners in the league.

But he’ll probably be best remembered for his flameout in Philadelphia. Asomugha was the biggest free agent in the summer of 2011, and signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Eagles.

After the team missed the playoffs both years and his performance slipped, he was cut in February of 2013 — nullifying the bulk of that five-year deal. Since the NFL can cut players without honoring the remainder of their contracts, Asomugha ended up earning about $25 million of that $60 million deal, according to USA Today.

He signed a one-year contract with the 49ers this season, but was cut in November.

He’s retiring as an Oakland Raider.

His post-football prospects look promising. He’s considered one of the more intelligent players in the league. He’s also married to actress Kerry Washington, who is currently expecting a baby.
