Free-agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha reached agreement on a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday that could pay him as much as $3 million this year. The contract has no guaranteed money. The ex-Eagle is due to earn a base package of $1.35 million with salary and bonuses, and could make an additional $1.65 million in incentives. "It's not about the money for him. He wants to play for a winner," his agent said. The former all-pro was released by the Eagles on March 12 after two disappointing seasons.

The Eagles are in the honeymoon period of free agency. Last week's shopping spree produced eight players, most of whom arrive at a ripe age, fill a targeted need, and appear to have signed at reasonable prices. Yet a signing cannot be properly assessed in March because the nature of the marriage between a free agent and a new team creates so many unknowns. "When you go into free agency, it's like an arranged marriage in some aspects because you've never lived with the person.

After they added five cost-efficient free agents Tuesday evening, the Eagles were content to sit out as another wave of players was signed to hefty contracts on the second day of NFL free agency. The Birds hosted Ricky Jean-Francois for a visit Wednesday, but the San Francisco defensive lineman left for his next stop - Indianapolis - without a deal. Rumors linked the Eagles to cornerbacks, pass-rushing outside linebackers, and tackles, but nothing materialized. Coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman took a break from the activity to introduce two of their new players - tight end/fullback James Casey and defensive lineman Isaac Sopoaga - and to update the Eagles' free-agency plan.

JUST AS FANS started to get good and worked up about the Eagles' inactivity in the early hours of free agency, the team dropped a load of signings on the reeling Twitterverse. Five new Eagles joined the roster, though they weren't the splashy, top-of-the-market guys some fans always seem to want, in the face of solid evidence that trying to build a winner that way doesn't work. The signings reflected what general manager Howie Roseman and new coach Chip Kelly said in the weeks leading up to the opening of the market: The Eagles need players, as they transition from the Andy Reid era to new systems.

It was exciting to see the Eagles make a big splash on the first day of NFL free agency, especially since it was Nnamdi Asomugha being thrown overboard. Hey, at least he made contact. The Eagles will pay Asomugha $4 million not to play for them in 2013 and that is the best bargain general manager Howie Roseman could have made. There are two ways to make your team better, and subtraction is the easy one. It is the addition part that gets tricky, as Asomugha's two-year display of ineffectiveness demonstrated.

THE EAGLES celebrated the commencement of free agency on Tuesday by excising their biggest free-agent disappointment in recent memory. They cut Nnamdi Asomugha. Perhaps their lesson is learned. Entering free agency as a rebuilding franchise, they can ill afford to direct too much money and too much hope on one or two veterans. They are nowhere near inserting a final puzzle piece to ensure Super Bowl contention, as evidenced by their signing of five players on Tuesday, all of whom have a chance to impact the reconfigured roster.

On the day the NFL's free-agent market opened, the Eagles released cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, one of the most heralded free-agent signings in franchise history. Asomugha, who played two seasons in Philadelphia, was scheduled to receive a base salary of $15 million this season, with $4 million guaranteed. Eagles general manager Howie Roseman met with Ben Dogra, Asomugha's agent, at the scouting combine last month. The sides could not agree on a restructured deal. Roseman said Tuesday that the Eagles had thought over this decision for the last two weeks.

The peril of a high-profile free-agent signing is evidenced by an examination of Nnamdi Asomugha's two seasons in Philadelphia. During that time, Asomugha's reputation sank from perhaps the finest cornerback in the NFL and the marquee free agent on the market to a player who might be unceremoniously released any day. Asomugha is still on the Eagles' roster. But unless the two sides can renegotiate the big deal he signed in 2011, the Eagles will be scouring the free-agent pool to find his replacement.
