Falcons and Eagles are getting close to a deal that would send CB Asante Samuel to Atlanta for a late-round pick.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 25, 2012
The Falcons are agreeing to a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles which will send former New England Patriots stud cornerback Asante Samuel to Atlanta.
Andy Reid has been trying to deal Samuel for nearly two years now. Samuel isn’t the most coachable player in the NFL and the Eagles are loaded at the position. By the sound of things, Atlanta will be getting him really cheap, too.
It’s a win-win situation.
UPDATE: The trade is now official.
