    I'm with you, but I was trying to get into the same ballpark as (somewhat) reasonable possibility... give or take a future draft pick.

    I wonder what kind of pick + Slaton we would be willing to give up to get Asante Samuel.

    the eagles are up there with the patriots when it comes to raping people in trades....they would probably jedi mind trick us into giving us a 2nd round pick for slaton....and our 1st next year.

    And how we'd make up the cap difference.

    Can you imagine:

    Samuel
    Quin
    Manning
    Joseph

    That would be rather satisfactory.

    Probably a second.

    Not a chance in hell that Slaton for Samuel is even in the same universe as "something reasonable." That's asinine.

    That said, if we could get it to work with the cap, I'd give Slaton and a 2nd for him in a heartbeat.

    And to think Nate Allen was there late in the draft two years ago and we didn't draft him then. Instead we got Dorin Dickerson.

    Maybe Wade will ask for it. We all know Wade get's whatever he wants because his daddy is Bum.

    That's what I'm saying. However looking as how Philly wanted a first for Kolb, I'm sure they aren't going to let Samuel go for peanuts. Although, he has been pretty vocal these days.

    Yeah, Ed would send the Eagles Andre Johnson and we'd get one of their UDFA guys.

    That's Ed Wade: Helping Phillies fans any way he can. Swell guy.

    Yeah, it was said tongue in cheek, hence the statement "give or take a future draft pick" following directly behind the "something reasonable" statement.
    Been fun, though, thanks for playing.

    I think Nate Allen was a 2nd round pick and Dickerson was a 7th .

    Ok. I may be talking about a different DB but I do recall the same draft.

    Straight up, do we get any compensation for Slaton at this point?

    Were they drafted or did they go undrafted?

    The secondary guys drafted after Dorin were:

    Kurt Coleman, Eagles
    Ray Fisher, Colts
    Robert McClain, Panthers
    Stevie Brown, Giants

    I don't recall any of those guys doing anything great last year.
