Woodson: Hopefully Asomugha will be back

After seven-plus years at NFL Network, Rod Woodson took his place on the other side of the camera Monday in his new role as cornerbacks coach of the Oakland Raiders. It was a bit of an odd sight to see Woodson on Raiders Cam, sporting silver and black.

One of Woodson’s first orders of business might be to pick up the phone and call pending unrestricted free agent Nnamdi Asomugha, who has credited the Hall of Famer for his development since the two were teammates during his rookie season in 2003.

“Hopefully, Nnamdi will come back,” Woodson said. “I think we’re going to do some different things this year on a defensive side, some more looks, some more things for the corners to make plays, get them to face the football, hopefully, a little bit more so they can get interceptions, so they can be playmakers for this defense. If we can do that, and if we can get a Nnamdi Asomugha back in Oakland, one of the best corners in the National Football League, it makes my job a lot easier.”
