Levy recorded 109 tackles in 2011.
As little as the Eagles currently require his services, Asante's value around the league is unimaginably high. The Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans, St. Louis Rams, and Detroit Lions are just a couple of teams who are prime destinations for Asante.
And what would the Eagles get in return for this trade? A lot.
In fact, according to 247sports.com, the Titans have shown mild interest in the soon-to-be 32 year old.
These teams are hurting for cornerback talent. They'd give up plenty in return for a proven interception machine like Samuel.
St. Louis, which is alarmingly deficient at the position, has this year's sixth overall pick, plus four more first-round picks in 2013 and 2014. Those are valuable picks that the Eagles could make good use of in the future.
Tennessee could provide similar return value.
The Titans have the 20th pick in each of the first four rounds, and one or two of those plus a guy like backup running back Javon Ringer would suffice in a trade.
Even Detroit could offer the Eagles something good, with DeAndre Levy and Justin Durant at the outside linebacker position. Those are two above average 'backers, and would plug a key hole in the Eagles defense.
In fact, whatever the Eagles get would be a bonus. They have three legitimate starters at cornerback: DRC, Nnamdi, and slot specialist Joselio Hanson. And so, by trading Asante, they would be bolstering other positions, building up picks for the future, and improving their roster as a whole.
