According to this site, he is...

Just saying but...this site predicted the Dolphins would sign WR David Kircus (who just signed today) like a month ago.

"The minutes tick away before the official start of free agency tonight. We will be up through the wee hours to report on the first signings and we have the first piece of breaking news.

We can tell you that minutes ago an NFL inside source reported to us that New England Patriot cornerback Asante Samuel will be signing a free agent deal with the Philadelphia Eagles."

Why would the Eagles want to trade away Lito Sheppard just to sign Samuel? Doesn't make sense and the Eagles are certainly not known for breaking the bank.

Who cares, we might be on the verge of getting Vilma

Could be very well true..but I have gone to the Eagles site and they are not even discussing the issue...and there are plenty of people on their board right now because their local sports radio program is staying live up until 12 am..I would at least think that there would be some reports of this development.

For real... I'd rather juice up the front 7... Fujita, Briggs and Vilma at LB? man please... our front four will have no choice but to up their game with that kind of talent behind it.

I agree. I'm not saying it won't happen, but I don't understand the logic. Honestly, for what the Eagles do defensively, I think Lito Sheppard is the superior player anyways. I don't see the logic.

I could have sworn Asante said he wanted to either play in a dome or for a warm weather team...

If they landed Asante, Lito would pretty much be gone, right? If it were between Samuel and Briggs I would rather Samuel.....but if it were Briggs and then Lito I would be insanely happy.

Vilma does not phase me as I don't care who is on our IR.

It seems as though its a sure deal.

per rotoworld:
The St. Petersburg Times "has it on good authority" that free agent Asante Samuel will sign with the Eagles.
In the last hour, there were all kinds of unsubstantiated reports coming out of Philly that the sides have a deal in place. The Birds may wait a few more hours or (ugh) until tomorrow to announce the agreement formally.

Why is a Tampa bay area paper breaking an Eagles signing?

I also don't get why they would break the bank on Samuel when they already have Lito and a pretty good secondary. Don't get it.

You'd think they'd focus on spending that cash more on help for McNabb, like Moss or someone. They're secondary is much better than their receivers.
