SANTA CLARA -- Nnamdi Asomugha's visit Thursday to the 49ers has not produced "serious" contract talks, nor are any expected until the veteran cornerback completes his free agent visits, a source indicated Sunday.

Asomugha met this weekend with the New Orleans Saints, and he had lunch Sunday with Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Metairie, La., where the Saints facility is based, according to Saints radio reporter Kristian Garic. Ryan was Asomugha's defensive coordinator with the Raiders from 2004-08.

Asomugha got released Tuesday by the Philadelphia Eagles, two seasons into a five-year, $60 million contract. After Asomugha's visit to the 49ers, NFL Network's Akbar Gbajabiamila reported that the 49ers were in "serious discussions" with Asomugha and free agent defensive back Charles Woodson, who visited them Wednesday.

Gbajabiamila, who played with Asomugha and Woodson on the Raiders a decade ago, tweeted on Sunday morning that talks between the 49ers and those two players were in "a holding pattern."

The 49ers have had several players come and go since Tuesday, when the league's fiscal year opened and free agency began.

They've acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin (trade), defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey (two-year contract), linebacker Dan Skuta (two years) and safety Craig Dahl (three years).

They've lost quarterback Alex Smith (trade), tight end Delanie Walker (Tennessee Titans), nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga (Philadelphia Eagles), safety Dashon Goldson (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois (Indianapolis Colts).
