King then goes on to say he thinks the Eagles would regret giving Samuel that kind of money because he played poorly down the stretch last year.
I find this little note from King worthwhile because of the numbers he quoted. Until now we had heard crazy rumors of Samuel looking for a 10 year $100 million contract with $30 million guaranteed. All too often reporters get floated these numbers from players' agents, but 5 years for $55 million is clearly below what Samuel's agent would be looking to throw out there. That makes me think this rumor could be coming from someone closer connected to the Eagles rather than Samuel's agent.
