    Yea I heard this is hours away from happening.

    Anybody think Sheldon Brown could move to FS?

    Then they would have

    Lito Sheppard Sheldon Brown Brian Dawkins Asante Samuel.

    Otherwise they have 3 probowl corners and one of them doesn't see the field in the base defense.

    SAMUEL SET TO JOIN THE FLOCK

    Various media reports, collected and referenced by our good friends at SportingNews.com, indicate that cornerback Asante Samuel will indeed sign a contract with the Eagles on Friday.

    It's reportedly a five-year, $47.2 million deal. To the casual fan, that's short of the $10 million per year average from the eight-year, $80 million deal signed last year by Nate Clements of the 49ers. As everyone in PFT Planet knows, the Clements deal is actually seven years and $64 million, making it worth a hair over $9 million per year.

    Samuel's deal carries an average of nearly $9.5 million. They could have added a phony final year that would have pushed the average to $10 million per year or more, and we respect both sides for doing what looks to be a "real" deal.

    Also, there's a certain irony regarding the five-year duration of the contract. Typically, the Eagles like to lock players up for looooong periods of time. As it now stands, Samuel's deal will expire before the contracts signed by some of the young players who cashed in early.

    It's nice to see a Cowboys rival making a big upgrade. The enemy of my enemy is my friend and all that jazz.

    "The Eagles wasted little time making an offer, reportedly worth around $57 million with $20 million guaranteed, on the first day of the free agent period."
    ******************************************
    The NFC East is getting even stronger and its just gonna make it tougher
    for every team in that division to compile a playoff-caliber record. Our division is tough, but with the SB champs and all now in the NFC East it is
    inarguably the NFLs top division.
