    Hope #Texans can find some cap room RT @JasonLaCanfora: Eagles letting it be known that CB Asante Samuel could be had in trade

    Its certainly possible. Samuel very likely in his last year in Philly. Eagles already loaded with picks though. Need LBs and linemen

    Hmmmmmm, what LB's would we be okay with parting with that would make the Eagles want to give up Samuel.

    I thought I saw Samuel get carried off the field last Sunday? It didn't look too good. Might be risky trading for a possibly injured player.

    That seems a little shallow doesn't it? Regardless, I doubt they have enough depth to give up anything the Eagles need.

    Jamison had a good showing this week.

    I wonder what Samuel salary cap number is?

    2012: $8.4 million, 2013: $10.4 million, 2014: Free Agent

    wow!

    They could bring his cap number down with a new contract with a large bonus right?

    To make the money work, I think it would have to be Ryans.

    I'd try to make this happen.

    Does nothing for a spotty run defense, but it's helps a lot against the pass.

    We would need to send about 6-7 million in salary back to the Eagles to make this work. Guys in that range are OD, Ryans, Smith, Schaub or a combination of lower paid guys like KJ and Jacoby. Not gonna happen.

    Apparently LaCanfora is reporting the same thing, I can't get it to show up on twitter, but someone else posted this:

    RT @JasonLaCanfora: Deal to send Asante Samuel and 1st round pick to 49ers for Patrick Willis almost complete..pending contract restructure

    Unless I'm being trolled.

    You're trading a beastly MLB for a fairly ordinary #1 corner and a possible first round pick? I would riot if the Texans did that.
