The venerable Matt Maiocco says every team in the league is going to be after the Raiders Nnamdi Asomugha.

One team that is reportedly already after the All-Pro corner is the Raiders' division rival the San Diego Chargers.

The San Diego Union Tribune reports that the Chargers may target Asomugha to be a center piece on an already stellar defense.

There are connections between San Diego and Asomugha as well. Current San Diego head coach Norv Turner coached the shutdown corner when he was the Raiders' head coach in 2004 and 2005.

But there are other teams that are being linked to Asomugha as well. Some analysts have linked the corner with the New York Jets and a dream pairing with fellow shutdown corner Darrel Revis.

Some reports indicate that Asomugha may be willing to take less money to play for a winner, which the Jets certainly are.

No team will be able to secure Asomugha's services until the league and its players reach a new collective bargaining agreement.
