Amid rumblings and reports that the Titans are interested in Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel, the move could soon be coming to fruition.
Derrick Gunn of CSNPhilly.com reports that Samuel could be traded to the Titans within the next few days.
Per Gunn, the Eagles would receive a conditional third-round pick. Which could mean that the pick would come in the 2013 draft based on Samuel’s performance in 2012, since the only condition that would apply before the 2012 draft would relate to signing Samuel to a new contract.
Samuel has a $10.5 million cap number in 2012. Per NFLPA records, Samuel is due to earn a base salary of $9.9 million.
The Eagles signed Samuel on the first day of free agency in 2008. He previously played for the Patriots. The arrival of Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in 2011 made Samuel a luxury that, as of 2012, the Eagles no longer can afford.
