I think the eagles know something we dont... Asante is what 30 this year?... he could very well be on the downside of his career and I don't wanna hear bears fans bitch about grabbing another over the hill guy even though I agree he could be an upgrade for the next year or two till we bring in some young proven guys who can take over.... Still... the fans of this team freakin CREATE crap to be upset about... and this has bad news written all over it.
I'm betting/hoping we stick to what we got, and try to bring along the guys we have with great potential in Corey Graham and the often beat up Bowman... and just look to the Draft FA next year to dry and grab some youth instead of another guy that doesn't have much left in the tank.
Yeah, if we were hurting so badly at CB that we absolutely needed some immediated vet help then I think Samuels would be a great pickup but giving up higher picks plus his salary for someone who isn't a primary need doesn't make sense to me either. CB is a position where we need some youth so we need to see how guys like Bowman and Moore develop this year. Playing them behind Samuels helps now but what happens when both he and Peanut hit the wall another year or two down the road?
If we were gonna give up two 2nd round picks then I trade them for a LT who could pass block well enough to replace Webb until Webb get's the hang of what a blindside OT is suuposed to be able to do every passing down, not just occasionally.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap.
