2011 NFL Free Agency: Nnamdi Asomugha Lands With The Philadelphia Eagles

This is the nightmare scenario for New York Giants fans. Nnamdi Asomugha has landed in the one place that likely hurts Giants fans -- and their Super Bowl aspirations -- more than the Dallas Cowboys or New York Jets. With the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles.

The deal is reportedly worth $60 million over five years, with $25 million guaranteed. And yes, Eagles fans are in a celebratory mood over at Bleeding Green Nation. To be honest, how can anyone blame them?

Along with Darrelle Revis of the Jets, Asomugha is one of the two best cornerbacks in the league. With Asomugha on board, you have to wonder if Philadelphia will keep both Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, just acquired in the Kevin Kolb trade, and veteran Giants nemesis Asante Samuel.

No matter what they ultimately decide to do with that surplus, this is a stunning move. And I have to agree with BGN's JasonB, who wrote "Good luck to anyone that tries to throw a pass against this defense next year."

Your thoughts, Giants fans! And do your best to keep 'em clean
