The trade talks surrounding Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel have been rampant since the Eagles' additions of Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Those talks have not abated.
As little as four days ago, the Samuel rumors have been heating up. They seem to get hotter as we get closer to the draft.
It certainly makes sense for the Eagles to trade Samuel and his $9.9 million salary considering they have two corners on the roster who get the bulk of the playing time.
Samuel has also said that he would rather be a starting cornerback instead of being buried on the Eagles depth chart.
The Eagles have been rumored to want to trade up in this year's draft, and it's certainly possible that Samuel could be involved in a draft day trade.
The Buffalo Bills are a team in need of some help in their secondary, and they would certainly welcome a dynamic corner like Samuel.
However, if the Bills were to make a trade involving their No. 10 overall selection, they'd likely be trading back with thoughts of taking a cornerback in the draft.
The Denver Broncos have been a team rumored to be in on the Samuel sweepstakes. The move certainly makes sense for John Elway's club now that Champ Bailey is no longer the player he once was.
Only time will tell where Samuel will play next year, but there's a high possibility that it won't be for Philly.
