    With Aso going to Philly along with DRC in the Kolb trade and Desean Jackson crying for more, would Texans be interested in Samuel? Here is his contract from 2008. Click on view contract to right of his name. $5.9 this season

    It'd be amazing to get Asante, but I don't see it happening.

    Asante will NEVER go back to the Patriots. Guaranteed.

    Texans probably can't afford to take on Asante's cap hit.

    The Eagles need a safety after losing Mikell to free agency. I wouldn't be surprised if they dealt him or DRC. However, they may want to dump his 5.9 million salary to another team for a draft pick.

    I would not be surprised if they asked aso or Asante to play Fs.

    How much money do the Texans have left? Still have to sign our draft picks along with any other depth players they plan on adding. Asante may be beyond our price range now. Can't go too hog wild in free agency. Don't want to end up like the Redskins.

    To get another solid corner? We can cut several players. Remember according to McClain we were @$118m against a $123m cap. We spent that $5 on JJ and Leinert.

    The guy had 7 INTs in 10 games last year. He is a turnover machine. No way he gets cut

    This. It would make no sense to cut Asante. None.

    I doubt he gets cut, but there is a report he's on the trading block.

    They also cut Dan OshitIranoutaboundski ..... and signed Tim Bulman.


    0k0y3 and Anderson have been given permission to seek trades - they could also be cut if nothing comes of that.

    I can see Samuels going to safety for them and the eagles having their other corner focus on the bump and run

    Been saying that since they got aso.

    I could also see aso going to safety.

    But they are not going to cut Asante. Trade? Maybe. But unless they're getting a real good player in return it doesn't make sense.

    I'd trade Mario and Kevin Walter for Asante and desean Jackson.

    :thinking:

    The trade I proposed wouldn't even work in madden.

    But the point is that id trade mario for Asante and something else.

    Could we trade the obvious players - okoye, slaton, and anderson (probably a low draft pick too) for him or is this a crack pipe dream also?
