Asomugha expects franchise tag from Raiders

Last year, the Raiders waited until the deadline day to franchise-tag Asomugha. He suspects they'll drag it out again this time.

"Last year, Al (Davis) called me the day before just to let me know he's going to do it, and then they waited until the very last possible second," Asomugha said Wednesday. "I don't know how they'll do it this year, but the expectation from my agent is that the tag will happen.

Poor Asomugha, hopefully he can get out of the mess in Oakland. :(
