Report: Nnamdi Asomugha ate in car

Nnamdi Asomugha ate lunch in his car during practices instead of eating with his teammates last season, WIP Radio in Philadelphia reported Tuesday.

WIP Radio's Hollis Thomas, who played for the Eagles from 1996 to 2005, reported the information, citing unnamed sources, who told Thomas that Asomugha chose to eat in his car in order to secure some "me time" during the season.

The Eagles have asked Asomugha to restructure his contract or they will release him, league sources have told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The two sides met Friday in Indianapolis at the NFL scouting combine. Asomugha, 31, is scheduled to make $15 million in 2013, $4 million of which is guaranteed.

A three-time Pro Bowler with the Raiders from 2003 to 2010, Asomugha has been a major disappointment with the Eagles since signing a five-year, $60 million contract in 2011.

Philadelphia thought it was assembling an all-star team that would compete for the Super Bowl, but the Eagles finished 8-8 in 2011 and 4-12 last season, leading to the firing of longtime coach Andy Reid.

Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, another member of the Eagles' 2011 free-agent class, was released Monday.
