The Earth shudders on its axis as the Eagles sign coveted free agent prize Nnamdi Asomugha

OK, there are now two questions.
One, how in God’s universe did the Eagles pull THIS off?
Two, will the Birds give up a completed pass this entire season?
In the blockbuster of the wild and wacky NFL free agency frenzy this week, Philly hit the mother lode today.
The Eagles somehow landed the biggest prize on the market and it did it seemingly out of nowhere. Who knew they were such cunning devils?
The Birds signed Nnamdi Asomugha, one of the best if not the best cornerback in the league, for a relative bargain at five years and $60 million, with $25 million guaranteed.
Guaranteed, everybody in Iggles Nation swallowed their Adam’s Apple over this. And pinched themselves.
Now the Eagles have the best cornerback trio in the entire league in Asomugha, Asante Samuel and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The latter was just acquired from Arizona in the Kevin Kolb trade.
Talk about cornering the market! Talk about shock and awe!
These days most NFL teams use three cornerbacks on most snaps, so there’s enough room for the Terrific Trio. According to a source, all three corners will remain on the team for the season — unless the Eagles get a fantastic trade offer.
The Eagles also signed wide receiver Johnnie Lee Higgins (formerly of the Raiders) and tight end Donald Lee (formerly of the Packers), two quality guys.
Throw in the signings of Vince Young as Michael Vick’s new backup and pass rusher Jason Babin and the Eagles now have so many toys that the porcine Andy Reid just might dress in Santa-red on the sideline this year.
