A day after Charles Woodson‘s marathon visit, the 49ers hosted another 30-something secondary star Thursday in cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
And as with Woodson, the face-to-face meeting didn’t lead to a quick agreement to join forces.
As of late Thursday night, the 49ers had yet to sign Woodson, Asomugha or another secondary target, former Detroit safety Louis Delmas, who also visited the team’s headquarters in Santa Clara.
Woodson, 36, the former Packer and Raider who is seeking a second Super Bowl ring, has the 49ers at the top of his list, according his agent. Of course, Carl Poston added the usual caveat: The money has to be right for the eight-time Pro Bowler to sign with San Francisco.
In a radio interview Thursday, Poston said he’s yet to engage in contract talks with the 49ers, who hosted Woodson for a morning-to-evening visit Wednesday.
“He’s made it very clear that he wanted to go to a contender where he could make a difference and he wanted to win another Super Bowl ring,” Poston said on 95.7 The Game. “So we’ve kind of narrowed down the teams that he wanted to talk to and San Francisco is clearly one of those teams.
“So, if the numbers are right, I’m assuming that Charles would want to pull the trigger with the 49ers. … The ball’s really in their court in one regard, but we haven’t really talked yet. We haven’t talked numbers at all.”
Asomugha, 31, found big numbers in free agency in 2011, but the former Cal standout was released Tuesday by the Eagles, two seasons into a five-year, $60 million contract. A three-time Pro Bowl selection with the Raiders, the lockdown corner gradually morphed into a liability in Philadelphia. His physical, man-to-man style was viewed as ill-suited for the Eagles’ zone-coverage schemes.
