Asante Samuel Returns To Philadephia Eagles Training Camp

Asante Samuel joined training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday. Samuel had been sitting out training camp for an excused personal issue. Of course, with the recent signings of Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, rumors have swirled that Samuel is now on the Eagles' trading block.

Samuel is still an Eagle for now, however, entering the fourth-year of a six-year contract worth $57 million. He may participate in Monday afternoon practice following a physical, in which case he would join Rodgers-Cromartie on the field while Asomugha sits.

Samuel has been outspoken, saying through his agent that he would like to stay in Philadelphia. In a increasingly pass-happy league it certainly doesn't hurt to have a stacked secondary. Still, the team may have a difficult time justifying the salaries due to three elite corners.
