"There's increasing chatter in league circles that the Saints have worked out a deal with cornerback Asante Samuel."

WOW.... this would be huge, i know people gonna criticize but we'd have two of the top 15 corners i would say and i think we'd allow a touchdown a game less with another corner besides david or fred thomas.

Sounds more like speculation than tampering. There is no way this happens without a deal in the pocket for a crackerjack DT or LB. Doesn't have to be a MLB, as Shanle can survive there for a year or we can draft one.

rotoworld.com has this prediction by one of it's columnists...I wonder where this started or the prediction came after some inside info that PFT has...

http://www.rotoworld.com/content/features/column.aspx?sport=NFL&columnid=59&articleid=29990

1. Asante Samuel (Patriots) - Samuel was not as effective in coverage in 2007 and is considered a "system player" by some GMs. However, he is experienced in a man-coverage scheme and has elite ball skills. Samuel, who just turned 27, has 19 picks and a startling 58 pass breakups over the last three seasons. He is in search of a ten-year, $100 million contract, which he won't get from the Patriots.

Prediction: Saints - 10 years, $100 million ($24 million guaranteed)

Shanle is an OLB

Why? It's happened in the past numerous times. Until the team tampered with complains, the NFL will do nothing.

Great news....but we still have a few days to go. If the Saints have a deal in principal allready...then it must be a monster deal.

I think tampering happens pretty often.

If this is true, I can't say I'm disappointed.
But does that really mean no DRC?
