Eagles place Samuel on the trading block - Wire Lifestyle - The Sacramento Bee
Despite a few potential obstacles, the Eagles will try to trade Asante Samuel before April's draft. 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. But don't underestimate the Eagles' negotiating powers. It's one of the front office's strongest traits, although the bartering has had to camouflage systemic failure in the evaluation of draft prospects on defense.

LeSean deal could be tricky for both sides
He's been extremely durable, averaging 20 touches a game the last 2 years. And unlike the now-you-see-him-now-you-don't Jackson, he's been consistently productive, averaging 5.0 yards per carry and scoring 24 rushing touchdowns in 2010-11, including a league-best 17 last year. On the minus side, well, he's a running back, which isn't a good thing to be if you're looking for an NFL team to send a Brinks truck to your house and fill your swimming pool with dead presidents.
