PFW: Asomugha and Lechler Could Bail in Offseason

From: Pro Football Weekly

Despite their team’s shoddy record, two Raiders — CB Nnamdi Asomugha and P Shane Lechler — were named to the Pro Bowl. Both players, though, will be free agents this offseason and there is no guarantee either of them will be back in Oakland. Sources say each is unhappy with some of the organization’s recent decisions as well as the overall direction of the club. Asomugha, who is playing under the franchise tag, has been vocal about his disagreements with the front office and there’s little doubt he’ll explore options that would lead him elsewhere. He recently replaced his long-time agent, Steve Baker, with Tom Condon, sending a signal of his intentions to get the long-term deal he failed to obtain last year. Al Davis will have a tough decision to make, since both players would like to move on and he’ll only be able to franchise one of them.
