The New York Post reported Friday morning that the Jets are waiting on making any other moves until Asomugha makes up his mind.
The Jets won't be able to offer Asomugha the most money due to salary cap restraints, but the opportunity to win and play opposite Darrelle Revis could be a deal too sweet to turn down.
"Not sure if the $$$ works in the end," tweeted NFL Network's Albert Breer. "But I'll say this — Nnamdi wants the Jets, and the Jets want Nnamdi."
ESPN.com's Rich Cimini also felt a deal with Asomugha was imminent.
"Got a feeling that Rex Ryan and [Jets GM] Mike Tannenbaum are going to be high-fiving each other real soon. #Nnamdi #Jets," he tweeted.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News also chimed in, adding, "I've been told that money will not be the sole determining factor in Nnamdi Asomugha's decision. He wants to win a Super Bowl."
NFL Network's Michael Lombardi also reported that the 49ers, believed to be other top candidate to land Asomugha, are out of the running.
"Right now, Dallas and Jets, Ryan brothers are battling. Stay tuned," he wrote.
None of these comments exactly mean anything, but it's rare for there to be so much smoke without any fire.
