    Your title is misleading. He has not signed. They have been linking him to the eagles for a while now

    I understand the title is your opinion but at least note it as such.

    I've also had reports that the Saints were very interested.

    Well here is my thought, if Asante signs with the Eagles, then Lito Sheppard becomes very expandable. How about we offer a 3rd rounder for Lito? Obviously the pick will be conditioned on the Pats extending Lito to a reasonable contract first.

    They'd never do a third, what about Seymour and their second plus lito, jk or our second straight up for lito i'd do that.

    SAMUEL VISITING EAGLES

    Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com reports that free-agent cornerback Asante Samuel will visit the Eagles on Friday.

    On Thursday night, it was reported that Samuel already has a deal in place with the Eagles.

    Samuel is looking for at least $10 million per year.

    The top free agents usually sign with the first team they visit with. Usually, they decide who to visit first by who has agreed to meet their contract demands.

    I'd rather have Asante in Tampa, but I don't think Philly is a terrible place for him to end up. This is much better than having him wind up within the division or with a serious SuperBowl contender.

    I'd love to add Lito Sheppard for the Pats 2nd rounder, if he can be had for less than a 2nd...even better.

    not necessarily, if that was the case it should have been written as 60m including incentives.

    CB Asante Samuel is scheduled to visit the Eagles on Friday, according to FoxSports.com. It looks like it will be Samuel's only visit, with the sides close to striking a six-year deal that could be worth a maximum of $60 million if Samuel reaches all his incentives.

    Good, I hope Arlen Spector enjoys it when he drops a Super Bowl winning interception for them.

    I hope he goes to the Eagles and the Pats get Sheppard. I have never been too high on Samuel he doesn't play bump and run well and is a gambler.

    We now need Lito since Samuel is all but gone especially with the loss of Gay, signing Lito would be Huge for this team.

    Re: Asantes an Eagle

    I dont think Asante is signing real quickly. He will play the offers against each other and get every penny. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I think his priority is the biggest contract he can get, over who he plays for.

    I know Asante's a good player, but I was secretly hoping he'd end up on the Jets.
    a. They can eff up a wet dream.
    b. He'd constantly be reminded of what he left behind.

    WEEI says Comcast Sports in Philly is reporting a deal is in place and the rumor is it's just a matter of getting the physical done before the press availability before they sign on the dotted line.

    Re: Asantes an Eagle

    Yea, it's kind of unusual for a team to schedule a press meeting for a visiting free agent, if they haven't signed him. Seems more than likely that a deal is done.

    His going to the Eagles is actually kind of funny to me, as I don't think he fits their system.
