Asomugha not interested in Texans?

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer

The Houston Texans have been my personal favorite in the Nnamdi Asomugha sweepstakes once the NFL gets back to business.

A blog by Houston Chronicle columnist Richard Justice suggests Asomugha doesn’t want any part of Houston.

I figured with Houston’s pass defense (pathetic) an excellent offense and a strong desire to get to the playoffs, owner Bob McNair would open his checkbook to bring in Asomugha.

Can’t say I’ve heard anything definitive about what Asomugha wants. He’s pretty good at playing it close to the vest. It’s simply not his style to denigrate a potential destination. He hasn’t ruled out the Raiders in the few interviews he’s done since the end of the season.

There are true believers who think Asomugha could still wind up re-signing with the Raiders, but virtually every road sign is pointing out of town.

The evidence is simply too strong. Owner Al Davis has already said publicly the money that would have been spent on Asomugha could be used to sign other players _ and then the Raiders brought back Richard Seymour and Stanford Routt for big bucks, not to mention Daniel Loper, Hiram Eugene and Rock Cartwright.

Besides re-upping with Routt, the Raiders drafted cornerbacks DeMarcus Van Dyke and Chimdi Chekwa a year after taking Walter McFadden and Jeremy Ware.

Add to it the fact that Asomugha is so far and away the top free agent on the market, he’s liable to bring home something in the ballpark of what he got the last time he signed _ a $45.3 million, three-year contract (the final year voided) that was the talk of the NFL. It was a contract so big the Raiders were relieved when the last year voided because of failure to meet statistical incentives.

Aside from Houston, expected suitors for Asomugha include NFC East teams Philadelphia, Dallas and Washington.

    There are documents that LBJ and Billie Sol Estes (who took the fall for LBJ in a securities scam) were involved in Kennedy’s murder.

    Mr. Estes, states that Mac Wallace, whom he describes as a “stone killer” with a communist background, recruited Jack Ruby, who in turn recruited Lee Harvey Oswald. Mr. Estes says that Cliff Carter told him that Mac Wallace fired a shot from the grassy knoll in Dallas, which hit JFK from the front during the assassination.
    Mr. Estes declares that Cliff Carter told him the day Kennedy was killed, Fidel Castro also was supposed to be assassinated and that Robert Kennedy, awaiting word of Castro’s death, instead received news of his brother’s killing.
