Eagles Samuel Flys Away

Asante Samuel leaves the Philadelphia Eagles and heads south to play the Dirty Birds down in Atlanta.  The new Falcon corner will join yet another packed secondary with Dunta Robinson and Brent Grimes.   The possibility being that Robinson will slide back to safety and allow Samuel to come in at the starting corner spot.  Philadelphia received only a seventh round pick for the former shut down corner, but having Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha left Samuel on the outside looking in.

Samuel agrees to restructure his contract and by doing so gets a 3 year 16 million dollar extension.
