EAGLES WASHOUT NNAMDI ON BROADWAY: THEATER OF THE ABSURD!

By Mary Cunningham

Nnamdi Asomugha was paid a king’s ransom by the Eagles in 2011 to shore up their secondary, and it turned out he couldn’t cover or tackle.

The 38-year-old cornerback-turned-actor has hit a milestone in his second career … starring in the Broadway play, “A Soldier’s Play,” alongside huge names like Jerry O’Connell, Blair Underwood and David Alan Grier, according to TMZ Sports.

Asomugha plays the role of Class Melvin Peterson, which was initially played by Denzel Washington when the play made its Broadway debut back in 1981.

Of course, the two-time first-team All-Pro has taken a serious approach to acting since leaving the league in 2013 … with roles in short films and other Off-Broadway gigs.

BTW — Asomugha is married to “Scandal” star Kerry Washington … so that’s one powerful couple in the industry.
