The Philadelphia Eagles have been shopping former Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel around the league before next week's draft, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Samuel, who led the NFC in interceptions in two of the past three years, is scheduled to make $9.9 million this season. He attended the Eagles' voluntary workouts this week.

The nine-year veteran has 45 career interceptions, including nine in 2009 and seven in 2010, and five career touchdowns. He picked off a career-high 10 passes for the New England Patriots in 2006.

In 14 games last season, Samuel was credited with 34 tackles and had three interceptions.

$9.9M for year is kinda steep...even if he has led the NFC in INTs 2 of the last 3 years.

I dont see the Texans as interested in his price tag. Otherwise I would have assumed they would have brokered the DeMeco deal to include him.

i dont think he'd fit us very well. with wade we've gone to a lot more man to man and press coverage. asante's more of a space player.
