Asante Samuel Gives Us The Most Memorable Quote Of Camp

The most memorable quote isn't always the best as evidenced by what Asante Samuel had to say yesterday as he spoke to reporters after practice.

"If they’re tired of my big-playmaking ability, maybe they’ll ship me out," Samuel said. "Maybe they’ll keep me. I don’t know. Who knows."

Samuel reported to camp on Monday, just days after the Eagles acquired both Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. That has led to speculation that the Eagles might deal Samuel, despite their claim that they're happy to have three all pro corners.

"I want to be where I’m wanted," Samuel said. "If I’m wanted here, [I want to be] here. If I’m not appreciated here, then life goes on. I move on."

Samuel said that it's "50-50" as to whether he thinks the Eagles do want him. It's an odd situation because seeing Asante on the practice field yesterday, it's clear that he likes being here and on this team. As always he was the loudest and biggest trash talker on the field. He also had nothing but good things to say about Asomugha and spent a good portion of camp standing and talking with Cromartie. 

He simply doesn't like the speculation and frankly that's understandable. But, I get the impression that if he's here then it's not going to be a big deal. Now, we know the Eagles are getting calls about him and obviously they are going to listen. However, I would think it would be wise to not let that go on too long. If they decide not to trade him, they should make that clear and hopefully that's something that happens sooner rather than later. If he's gone, he's gone. But if he's going to be here, I think he'd perfectly happy with that, but they should make it clear.
