    EAGLES STILL WORKING TO TRADE ASANTE SAMUEL

    EAGLES STILL WORKING TO TRADE ASANTE SAMUEL

    "Despite a few potential obstacles, the Eagles will try to trade Asante Samuel
    before April's draft according to Jeff McLane of the <a href="http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/eagles/20120325_Eagles_have_Samuel_on_the_trading_block.h tml">Philadelphia
    Inquirer</a>.


    The cornerback is 31 and due to earn $9.5 million next season, so it's
    unlikely they'll get anything close to what they would have had last August in a
    near-complete swap with the Detroit Lions.</p>


    The Eagles won't likely publicize their interest in dealing Samuel, who
    blasted the front office last October when rumors surfaced that he was on the
    market before the trade deadline. The four-time Pro Bowl corner knew he was
    dangling as far back as training camp, however.</p>


    In fact, he was part of the process after the Eagles and Lions agreed to an
    exchange that would have netted the Birds two second-day draft picks. That deal,
    though, fell apart for reasons other than draft compensation.

    Despite the
    difficulties in dealing Samuel, he is a proven corner and one of the best
    pickoff artists in the game. There will be a market for such a player in today's
    pass-happy NFL."</p>

    Is it just a cap thing?

    Cap is certainly part of the issue though.

    I'm just uncomfortable with the ability of the Eagles to rip off desperate teams in a trade.

    Some stupid team will probably give away a first round draft pick at least.

    A first, a second, a third and a trillion dollars. At least that's what it seems like the Eagles get whenever they make a trade.

    I'm waiting for the "Why don't we trade for Asante Samuel?????" thread to pop up.


    Anyway, that hefty salary will make him tough to shift.

    granted they never win the Superbowl and aren't a threat to win it, but they're a divison threat and have knocked out the Giants in the playoffs or out of the playoffs race a couple of times. How soon did we forget the 0-7 matchup losses which got finally put to an end this past season? They can be an annoying speed bump sometimes...

    The Eagles are indeed trying to trade Samuels. Looks like they couldn't rip anyone off.

    And just to answer a future question that just might be asked...

    No, the Giants are not going to trade their 6th round pick for Samuels. Simple because he is due $9.4 million dollar base salary in 2012.
