Atlanta Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel is writing checks in advance of Sunday's playoff matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, labelling himself and his playmaking prowess as 'Swag 100'. "I'm swag 100% of the time,'' Samuel told Jim Corbett of USA TODAY Sports. "In order to have swag, you have to be balling -- doing your thing and making game-changing plays, like I've been doing." (he's talking about football, right?) To Samuel, the man with the "Get Paid" tattoo, its all about swagger (well, and getting paid of course). "It's all about being a leader, making everybody around you better," he said. "That's what I want to do, make everybody around me better and have everybody go out for one common goal: to win a championship.'' Although Samuel gave himself a new moniker, teammate Roddy White already had one for him. "Human Crowd Noise," he said laughing. "Asante talks a lot. And he makes practice fun. Nobody is exempt, including me and Matt," said head coach Mike Smith. "Asante's been a great addition to our team. He exudes confidence in his game and it rubs off on other guys in the locker room.'' Note: Somebody make sure to get video of any conversations between him and Seattle CB Richard Sherman before and after the game, could be a veritable cornucopia of swagger. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
