Asante Samuel Trade Rumors: Latest on Eagles CB to 49ers and Jets

Philadelphia Eagles' Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel wants out.

In a frantic free agency period that has seen a large group of players flock to the Eagles for a chance to win a Super Bowl, the eight-year veteran finds himself on the outside looking in.

With cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie landing in Philadelphia, Samuel's place in a loaded secondary is being questioned.

Will he start? Is he going to come off the bench? Can the Eagles switch to a nickel defense (to accommodate all three corners) defense, like Green Bay did last season?

The main cornerbacks available in this offseason are all signed now, so Samuel's sudden availability should have at least a few teams jumping at the chance to sign the 30-year-old star. The San Francisco 49ers cut Nate Clements, the New York Jets missed out on Asomugha, and both squads should be considering Asante.

Check in here for the latest news on which teams are showing interest in Asante Samuel, and whether the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers can realistically make a play for the four-time Pro-Bowler.
