Instead of eating with his teammates, Asomugha used to eat lunch, by himself, in his car at the Novacare complex to get some “me time” during the 2012 season sources told Thomas.

Thomas is a host on 94WIP, and played for the Eagles from 1996-2005.

Asomugha was signed to a $60 million contract before the 2011 season, and is due to make $15 million for the 2013 season. A report last week suggested that the Eagles will release Asomugha if he doesn’t agree to restructure his contract.

The Eagles released defensive tackles Cullen Jenkins and Mike Patterson on Monday. No word on where they ate lunch.
