Mike Florio is a Hater

With Samuel, Eagles could be sizing up another sucker Posted by Mike Florio on March 29, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT Getty Images Multiple and conflicting reports have emerged as to whether the Titans or the Lions will swing a trade with the Eagles for veteran cornerback Asante Samuel. Annnnnd roll the theme from The Sting. The trades that sent A.J. Feely to Miami or the trade that sent Donovan McNabb to Washington or the trade that sent Kevin Kolb to Arizona or the trade that brought DeMeco Ryans to Philly showed that the Eagles know how to get the better of a transaction of this nature. Thus, no one should give up anything significant in return for a 31-year-old cornerback due to make $9.9 million this year and $11.4 million. Though the pass-happy nature of the NFL puts a premium on defensive backs, if Samuel was a premium defensive back the Eagles wouldn’t have acquired a pair of defensive backs last season to render him unnecessary. And now the Eagles can’t afford Samuel, and they’re looking for a sucker who will take him off their hands. History tells us that they’ll find one. For more, we suggest a slice of Thursday’s edition of PFT Live. It won’t cost you a conditional third-round pick.
