Unfortunate news for Nnamdi Asomugha, the football cornerback husband of “Scandal” star Kerry Washington. The San Francisco 49ers have waived Asomugha, while activating cornerback Eric Wright.
The report comes from ESPN, who points out Asomugha was once considered one of the NFL’s most promising cornerbacks. He joined the 49ers during the offseason, after receiving a release from the Philadelphia Eagles.
It’s still a joyous time for Asomugha, who is celebrating the news that he and Washington are expecting their first child together. That news broke at the end of October, when a friend revealed Kerry was about four months into her pregnancy, something that wasn’t mentioned at all during her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig.
