Asante Samuel is set to take on his old team, the Philadelphia Eagles, as a member of the Atlanta Falcons this weekend. Samuel’s four seasons in Philly had plenty of ups and downs. He was not exactly on good terms with head coach Andy Reid when he left town, as evidenced by the shot he took at Reid on Twitter earlier this week. Reid is not the only one Asante had a problem with. It appears as though he is also holding a grudge against the Philly media. Former #Eagles CB Asante Samuel, currently with the #Falcons, has refused to do a conference call with #Eagles beat writers. — Bob Grotz (@BobGrotz) October 22, 2012 The Eagles blog PhillyBlurbs.com also confirmed that Samuel snubbed the media. Notable players who are returning to face their former teams typically participate in at least one conference call with that team’s writers and reporters, but Samuel is clearly making a statement. An immature one, but a statement nonetheless. Why are we not surprised? H/T Crossing Broad via Black Sports Online Photo credit: Rob Christy-US PRESSWIRE
