ASANTE SAMUEL RUMORS

Do any of these remaining free agents fit in with the Detroit Lions?

The last days of free agency before the 2014 NFL draft are upon us, and the Detroit Lions still have multiple holes to fill.

Asante Samuel avoids talking about future with Falcons

Doesn’t look like defensive back Asante Samuel is going to be in Atlanta for more than a year. Samuel was benched for Sunday’s win versus the Green Bay Packers in favor of rookie Robert Alford.

Philadelphia Eagles Get Peanuts In Return For Asante Samuel

Asante Samuel has been traded to the Atlanta Falcons for what has been described as an “undisclosed pick” in this year’s draft.  The consensus, though not official, is that it’s Atlanta’s sixth-rounder. Using the term “undisclosed pick” in compensation for Samuel is code for “we got absolute crap for a good player.” How in the world did they only get so little...

Philadelphia Eagles Desperate to Dump Asante Samuel Before the Draft

But Denver’s low offer–a 5th or 6th round player or an unnamed player–wasn’t the straw that broke the camel’s back.
