The Oakland Tribune named Asomugha one of the best Oakland Raiders of all time in August 2009.

Asomugha went on to be a three-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time First-Team All-Pro.

Asomugha was a sought-after free agent entering the 2011 season, and he signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

He finished the season with 40 tackles, 5 passes defensed, and 3 interceptions before signing a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

When did Nnamdi Asomugha and Kerry Washington get married?

Nnamdi and Kerry married in a private wedding in Hailey, Idaho in 2013.

“How private and secretive it was?

“That’s how the anniversary is going to be too.”

Do they have any children?

Nnamdi and Kerry have two children together, but Nnamdi also has a child from a prior relationship.

Their daughter Isabelle is eight years old, and their son Caleb is six.

Kerry has stated that she wants her children to have a thick skin and be able to function independently.

“I try to show up as the person they need to help them be the best versions of themselves.”
