Asante Samuel, Falcons Agree On Deal As Trade Nears, According To Report

The Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel have reportedly agreed to a new deal that would make it possible for a trade to go through, according to Albert Breer. The two teams have reportedly been working on a trade for two days now, and Samuel's involvement signals that it's probably just about to go through.

The Eagles have had Samuel on the block for about a month now. The Denver Broncos had interest, reportedly considering dealing a pick from round five or six. It would make sense if the price tag is about the same for the Falcons.

Samuel is a multiple-time Pro Bowler for the Eagles and Patriots. He's made the playoffs in almost every year of his NFL career, which could provide the kind of veteran leadership the Falcons have said they're looking for.
