The Giants seem to have a problem on their hands with Osi Umenyiora, even if the team has most of the leverage in the situation.
In Philadelphia, the uncertainty surrounding Asante Samuel doesn’t seem as dire. The Eagles are clearly open to trading Samuel, but they should be able to fit his $5.9 million salary under the cap.
Then again, Samuel doesn’t seem pleased with the situation.
“I want to be where I’m wanted,” Samuel said via the Philadelphia Inquirer. “If they’re tired of my big playmaking ability, they can ship me out.”
Team President Joe Banner joined PFT Live Monday to give his stance on the matter. Unless the team can get a quality pick for Samuel, we don’t see why they have to move him.
