Asomugha tries to buy jersey No. 24 for $24,000

Nnamdi Asomugha has made tens of millions of dollars in his NFL career. Anthony Dixon has made about $1 million. When Asomugha was signed by the 49ers, he had his eye on the No. 24 jersey which already belonged to Dixon. Asomugha figured he could just buy Dixon off.

Looks like it didn’t work.

In an interview with, Dixon said that he and Asomugha had a conversation on the matter, and Asomugha thought $24,000 would be a fair price for No. 24. The offer wasn't enough for Dixon.

“We tried to go $24K for 24, but I told him, ‘No, I’m going to keep my 24,’” Dixon said.

Asomugha may have to up his offer. Dixon told Asomugha, “I’m not ready to sell it, yet,”  the “yet” may imply that Dixon may eventually be willing to sell the number.

So if Asomugha wants to end up with No. 24 on his jersey when the 49ers open the season on the Sunday, he’ll have to spend more than $24,000.
