    Doesn't he need to be cut first, and pass through waivers for us to even have a chance.

    And isn't it highly unlikely that he would drop all the way to us, or his contract that absurd?

    I'm just wondering because people here and on WEEI are mentioning it. Thanks!

    He has about $18.8 million left on his deal. That's one of the reasons I'm assuming why no one took him at the deadline. That's a ton of money, the final year of his deal(2013) he has a cap hit of 11.5 million.

    Thanks for that. Based on his history, I doubt he would be one to restructure his contract...

    Too many people think we can still trade for him, I don't see any reason why people want to either. Just because he is making a lot of money doesn't mean he is worth it.

    Also, we're 31st in line for waivers and Philly would never cut someone they could get at least a 3rd or 4th if they'd drop their demands for a 1st.

    -A complete d-bag, spoiled athlete
    -A terrible teammate
    -Undisciplined, uncoachable style of selfish play
    -A tattoo that says "pay me"
    -Responsible for the most costly play (and series) in franchise, if not NFL history
    -Burned bridges with the team already after not getting paid enough

    What, you don't want him?

    No problem, and for sure. No chance he restructures, at least, unless he really, really wants to go to a certain team.

    It's really a Bodden for Samuel trade. The Eagles will claim Bodden off waivers, and then they'll cut Samuel. The Patriots will then claim Samuel, and the 'trade' will be done. :eek:
