  • Samuel signs monster-deal with Philly

    Asante Samuel just signed a 7 year 95 Million deal in Philly, just heard it on the radio here.

    Apparently he is being guaranteed 28 million of it.

    Anyone seen anything on the web?

    No, nothing yet. I guess it's just a matter of time then.

      guess this means a Lito Sheppard trade is guaranteed now

        If that is true, I am very pleased as a Giants fan. He is definitely not worth that money at all. I think it is a reaction to the Hall sweepstakes going on with the other 3 NFC East teams.

          To bad Hall plays for Atlanta, cause I doubt they would want to trade him within the division.

            ~13.5 mil a year

            Definitely over payed, but they wanted a playmaker...

            Thanks to BK for the sig

              It may be a monster deal in terms of dollars, but what really matters are the structure of the bonuses and how much of the money is weighted towards the end of the deal. In theory, it could be a 3 year deal with a bunch of fluff.

                Again, actual value, not paper value, is what counts. When we get those details, then we'll see what's doing.

                  Before we judge this contract, if confirmed, let's wait for the breakdown. That's always more key than anything, and I wonder if this is backloaded, perhaps moreso than Clements was last year.

                  I like Samuel, but no way do I think this is worth it. I'm not even sure he's all that great of a fit, but that's my 2 cents. I think the Patriots style was something that fit him.

                  If this is confirmed, I'll be a tad surprised. It looks like the Eagles are gearing up for one more run, as I didn't expect them to make a move for a CB this big entering the offseason.

                  Let's not jump to conclusions on Lito just yet. Now, I'm guessing it'll likely happen, but they COULD move Sheldon Brown to safety, thus addressing another hole.

                    I'm sure there's some serious backloading going on, ala Nate Clements. 28M guaranteed, wow. Would someone else have really paid that?

                      They've got two younger guys in Considine and Mikkell who they like, and Brian Dawkins coming back for one more run. I don't see it, I suppose, especially when Brown was their most consistent corner in 07.

                        I would not have wanted to pay that kind of money for him.....Im glad we did not get him if that was the cost.

                            Hopefully this comes with the agreement that they give the Patriots Lito Sheppard on the cheap for "letting" the Eagles talk to Samuel before they were actually allowed to...
