    From everything I've seen, it appears there is an option that extends the deal beyond 2011, but at greatly escalated salaries.

    I guess they could trade for him and not exercise that option, thereby having him under contract for the rest of 2009 through 2010. They could then at some point try and work out a more reasonable deal, but that's taking a pretty huge risk, given what they would like have to trade to get him.

    That said, reports now seem to indicate that Asomugha is one of he untouchable players - and rightly so - so Oakland has no intention of dealing him and they perhaps can't anyway based on the cap hit they would likely realize from the bonus he just got.

    They'd also have to create some cap space now to accomodate his present salary of $4.5M. They'd be responsible for 11/16ths of that, but they only have less than $2M in Cap space right now, so they'd have to do some manuevering.
    Frank Walker, Chris Carr, maybe both.

    This surely must be a tease. No way they'd trade Asomugha, right?
    IT'S THE RAIDERS!!!

    Since we are post June 1st wouldn't any acceleration go into next year anyway?

    Since they are both vested veterans, they still get paid if they are released and the team still has to account for them on the Cap.

    So, if it was even possible to get Asomugha, they'd have to restructure a couple of contracts to get it done.

    Since this is the "last capped year", there is no post-June 1 deferral. The full amount of acceleration hits this year. This is one of those built in CBA rule changes that were specifically aimed at preventing teams to take too much advantage of the next year being uncapped.

    Otherwise (think the Ravens with McGahee), teams would have released a lot of players after June, thereby pushing the bulk of that acceleration into next year, when it (likely) wouldn't matter anyway.
