“That [Tampa Bay] is a situation that makes sense,” said Alonzo Shavers, Samuel’s agent. “Tampa Bay is definitely worth considering. It was an organization that was in the Super Bowl not too long ago. It is an organization Asante wants to play for. It’s definitely something that makes perfect sense for everybody.”

His agent is probably the source that starts these rumors.

He knows the more teams intrested in Asante, the more money he can ask for.

I'd say let him go to Tampa. He fits their scheme better than ours. Could you see him being a scheme guy like JDavid. Obviously he is better than JD but who knows.

It's called "negotiating".
Work those interested to get the most out of them!

Why would Tampa want to pay top money for a man corner to play in a cover 2 scheme? Doesn't make sense to me.

At 10 Million a year, Tampa has other fish to fry with that money, i think this is a false leak by Asante's Agent, The Buc's has several contracts to work out such as Earnest Graham and half the team will have their hands out as well, Gruden will most like get a raise, They still haven't found out what to do with Simms other than pay him, Garcia is slated for a Bonus, looks like Galloway will milk the Glazers pocket books for another 2 years.
Plus Asante don't fit into that defense, it'll only make sense to get him just to keep us from upgrading our Defense, but i doubt he'll be of benefit to them.

I wouldn't be shocked to see Tampa sign M.Turner from San Diego.
Word out of Tampa is that C.Williams career may be over..
