According to the NFL, The Eagles are looking to trade CB Asante Samuel before the NFL Draft. Samuel is due to make $8.4 million dollars in 2012.
This is not news as much as it is a declaration of an obvious writing on the wall. When the Eagles traded for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and lured in then free agent Nnamdi Asomugha, Samuel was reportedly very upset.

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.
