Nnamdi Asomugha, who stunned the nation over the summer with his marriage to actress Kerry Washington, just received some unfortunate news from the NFL.

According to NBC Sports, the San Francisco 49ers are releasing the 32-year-old upon the return of injured cornerback, Eric Wright. Once considered one of the league’s top defensive backs, sports insiders are optimistic that Asomugha’s chances of signing with another franchise are “pretty good.”

Prior to the unforeseen announcement, the baller was spotted over the weekend in Manhattan with the “Scandal” star following her hosting duties on “Saturday Night Live.”

"She was adorable, as you can imagine" an observer revealed to Us Weekly. "She was with her husband, parents and family and friends. When she arrived to the table, they gave her a standing [ovation]!"

Washington's appearance on the popular sketch comedy show also contributed to its highest ratings of the season, making it the most watched episode since Justin Timberlake's March 9 airing.
