Will 49ers go after Asomugha?

Here is a look at a possible pursuit of the Raiders free-agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha by Bay Area rival San Francisco. I have two reactions.

First, the 49ers won’t be alone. Many teams will consider pursuing Asomugha. My second thought is reports of potential interest by San Francisco will only make Oakland owner Al Davis want to keep Asomugha more. I can’t see Davis letting Asomugha walk to a rival.

In other AFC West evening news and notes:

  • Kansas City coach Todd Haley was on ESPN’s Rome is Burning on Tuesday. He would not say for certain if he will call plays this season or not. He promoted offensive line coach Bill Muir to offensive coordinator. Meanwhile, there has been talk that Chris Palmer could become Kansas City’s quarterback coach. That is now not expected to happen. Haley could promote Nick Sirianni to quarterback coach. He worked closely with Matt Cassel last season.
