Nnamdi Asomugha will be this years biggest free agent prize, and his interest in acting could play a part in determining where he goes.

Asomugha wants to act when hes done playing football, and that could help the Jets attract Asomugha even though they probably wont be the team that offers him the most money.

Asomugha is interesting because the Houston Texans, probably, are going to make him the biggest offer, Mortensen said. Yet you keep hearing that Nnamdi wants to go somewhere where he can begin to focus on his post-playing career, even though hell give his all as hes playing, and he has a great interest in being an actor, whether its in theater or whatever, and that could factor into it.

Derek Carr approves of Tiger Woods' new pool table

Tiger Woods' re-felted pool table is for all of Raider Nation.

To no surprise, quarterback Derek Carr approves of the new look. 

The golf legend tweeted a picture of his new table where he went with silver felt and a Raiders logo right in the middle. Woods' table also has silver and black balls with the Raiders logo on them. 

Woods grew up in Southern California and attended Stanford in 1994, the Raiders' last year in Los Angeles. That same year, Woods helped the Cardinal become the NCAA Division I golf champions before turning pro.

After eating her food as kid, Lynch purchasing restaurant from 79-year-old

Marshawn Lynch first tasted Cassie Nickelson's food when he was nine years old while she catered out of her Oakland apartment.

"When he was 9-years-old, he came across the street to get a hamburger and French fries. 25-cent French fries and a 75-cent hamburger," Nickelson said to KTVU.

Lynch, 31, is now set to take over Nickelson's popular soul-food restaurant, Scend's Restaurant and Bar, in Emeryville. Nickelson, 79, will be retiring in August. 

"I'm comfortable with him and I like him," Nickelson said.

Lynch will not become the official owner until the liquor license changes hands. Scend's, an acronym for Nickelson's children and grandchildren, is known for its seafood, fried chicken and red beans.
