Ryan family fued breaks out over Nnamdi Asomugha

It’s on in the pursuit of Nnamdi Asomugha.

The San Francisco 49ers have reportedly backed out of the bidding for the services of the All-Pro cornerback and with a new entrant in the derby it’s a two-team race, according to our friend Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network.

Per Lombardi, Asomugha is being chased by the New York Jets, the favorite for the last few days, and the Dallas Cowboys. Jerry Jones loves making a huge splash and he could do just that. There was speculation when the Cowboys slashed payroll by announcing many cuts that they could be in play for Asomugha. Now, they are.

Rex Ryan coaches the Jets and his brother Rob Ryan is the new defensive coordinator for the Cowboys. Let the feud begin, boys.
