Report: Asomugha Ate Lunch In His Car Instead Of With Teammates

From: GCOBB.com

Early last season, I had heard a rumor about Eagles cornerback Nmandi Asomugha going to his car to eat his lunch so he could make some calls on his phone to run his affairs outside of football such as; his foundation, speaking schedule and endorsement deals.  He has a team of professionals who help him to manage his off the field life and he talks to them nearly every day.

I didn’t like it when I heard about it because it’s very important that veteran players spend time with their younger teammates.  The veteran are supposed to be making sure everybody is on the same page on coverages.  A veteran like Asoumgha should be making sure that each young player in the secondary understands exactly what type of receivers they’re going to be facing in the next game.

Asomugha didn’t do a good job of serving as a veteran mentor to his young teammates in the secondary.
