The San Francisco 49ers are looking for assistance in the defensive backfield, so how about a pair of former All-Pros?
NFL.com's Akbar Gbajabiamila cited a league source to report that the team is engaged in 'serious' discussions with both cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and safety Charles Woodson.
With Dashon Goldson defecting to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Woodson makes more sense with the 49ers than he would have otherwise. The Niners also met with 25-year-old free-agent safety Louis Delmas on Wednesday, overall a more attractive target. Still, coach Jim Harbaugh isn't afraid to bring in veterans and we trust coordinator Vic Fangio's ability to squeeze production out of new faces.
Asomugha earned $21 million over two seasons with the Eagles. Whoever gets him next will be in for a bargain by comparison. Placed in the right situation, both of these 30-somethings still have something to offer.
