Chris Trotman/Getty Images(ALAMEDA, Calif.) — Three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha will retire Friday.

The 32-year-old will sign a one-day contract with the Oakland Raiders Friday, the team he had most of his NFLsuccess with, and then will make the official announcement at the team’s headquarters.

Asomugha spent his first eight-seasons as a member of the Raiders, compiling 271 tackles, 62 passes defended and 11 interceptions while being named a first-team All-Pro twice (2008, 2010).

After the 2010 season, Asomugha signed a five-year, $60 million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. Asomugha struggled to find his Pro Bowl form in Philadelphia and was released after two seasons.

He played three games for the San Francisco 49ers this season before being cut last month.
