Asante Samuel is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. Sadly, Samuel is also one of the most expendable players on the Philadelphia Eagles roster.
Expected to make $8.4 million next season, Samuel’s contract as well as the presence of former Pro Bowl cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the Eagles roster, make the nine-year veteran an easy trade piece for Philadelphia.
Samuel should be a hot commodity for most teams that may be in desperate need of a phenomenal ball hawk corner who has his most success in zone coverage. Samuel ranks amongst the NFL’s best corners, such as Darrelle Revis and teammate Nnamdi Asomugha, but does struggle in man coverage.
With big holes to be filled by the Eagles this offseason, Samuel’s tenure in Philadelphia may be coming to an end. Here are five teams that could benefit for trading for his services.
