Shortly after the news broke the Eagles confirmed they have signed Asomugha to a five-year deal. This means that for the foreseeable future, the Eagles' cornerbacks will be Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha. Talk about the rich getting richer.

Throughout the last few days it looked like the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys or even the Oakland Raiders would land Asomugha. In the end, the Eagles pulled out a shocker and have made their defense even better, and they have seriously stung the Cowboys in the process.
