Raiders Asomugha a free agent

Oakland Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha is not longer an Oakland Raider.

Failing to reach certain incentives, Asomugha’s last year of a three-year, $45.3 million contract was voided, making the three-time Pro Bowl cornerback an unrestricted free agent.

Raiders senior executive John Herrera confirmed to The Associated Press that the contract had been voided.

Entering his third season of the contract, Asomugha, 29, had to play more snaps or boost his interception, fumble recovery or sack total from their 2009 levels to keep the last year of the contract. But Asomugha played in just 14 games — two less than 2009 — because of an ankle injury, and he didn’t post an interception, a fumble recovery or a sack. He also had 19 tackles, 15 fewer than last season.
