Now I see why Denver pulled out of the deal. 3 year 18.5 mil is still a lot for him.

from the eagles message board


"This is a horrible move. The best CB on our team to a playoff contender."


'I'll be sad to see him go. People are saying that he's lost a step, I disagree. 2010 and 2011 were the best years of his career, and were truly elite. Everybody said when Nnamdi got here, people would start throwing at Asante. Well they didn't, they threw at Nnamdi instead. I just hope DRC can step up."


"I for one will hate to see him go. I thought he was a terrific CB, better than Nnamdi last year."

"Wish he was going to the AFC."

there were other responses too you know like...

here is the proof you need....face it, he isnt worth that much. nothing to do with what he said about the FO. no matter what his criticism was, if AR could have gotten a 2nd or 3rd, he would have. he couldnt cuz the dude aint worth it. if samuel could have signed a mega 10million a year contract, he would have. he couldnt cuz the dude aint worth it

"Samuel, who was slated to earn $21.4 million in the final two years, gets an additional year on his contract but the deal maxes out at $18.5 million."

instead of 2 years at almost 11million per...he gets about 6million per and he likely wont see even all of that

his gambling for INTs hurts the entire defense. not to mention his refusal to tackle, switch sides or play press

i know it will be really, really, really hard to make up for all the INTs he gave us last year....we just have to hope that we can get both of them from like a DT or something
You people crack me up. He's gone because he criticized the front office? Really?

How bout:

He's gone because he's a free lancing fraud who refused to play within the scheme since he got here. That was tolerable while he was getting buckets of INTs, but those stopped happening. For every INT he got us, he gave up 2 TDs by giving a 10 yard cushion on x and goal from the 5.

Good riddance.

And the poor compensation was based on the fact that everyone and their uncle knew nobody (especially not the iggles) was going to pay him 10 mil this year and 11 mil next.

We're lucky to get a 6th for him because he was gonna get released outright if nobody ponied up a token offer for him.
there's always a ying to the yang

they gave up a throwaway pick because we didnt want him, we gave him away. like i said addition by subtraction. no there is nothing to "get over"

Pretty much. We traded him because Aso and DRC's strength is press man coverage, Asante is better suited for Zone. If Jim Johnson was alive and DC, he would of made it work because he could run a hybrid scheme, Juan is still learning the guy was a offensive line coach and they stick him in as a DC. But in the end, it still came down to salary and the style of D they are running now. DRC is younger and a free agent after this year, it basically had to happen. You couldnt have all 3 start, DRC isnt a nickel back. Your wasting your time arguing with this clown.

TBH I loved Asante as an Eagles, still a Top CB in this league. One of the best ballhawks in the game.


That being said, he's 31, has been known to get beat by double moves from times to time, can't form tackle worth a damn and when he does lay a big hit(i.e. the hit on Hagan) more than likely a flag is getting called for using the helmet. He's an off-cover corner no matter what he thinks and in this new scheme we need guys that can press. Nnamdi and DMC are perfect for that. Asante, not so much. Plus by getting rid of him we open up more cap to extend both Shady and Maclin

Not trying to belittle him in the event of him leaving but just telling y'all why the Eagles probably did this. Good move for Falcons. Necessity for us.
Everything this man said. Its a win/win for both teams. We get cap and Atlanta gets Sante for a pretty nice price. sh*t we probably would have ended up cutting him anyway. Plus i wanna see what we have in DRC. Him and Nnamdi excel in press coverage and with the wide 9 we need tight man coverage out there. Sante will always be a fan favorite in Philly but it was time to part ways, n*ggas jobs in on the line this season.

I had 14 on my list........s**t was on point, but like I said Im not hatin' its a good move. IMO those guys on that list are more complete corners than Asante right now. Tackling, ball skills, man coverage skills, zone coverage skills etc all factor into that.

sounds like an L for philly on the trade, but he probably would've tripped in the locker room seeing as he's still the 3 cornerback; but didnt have still have the most picks of all the corners? lol
