Breaking News: Asante Samuel Update

Asante Called Andy Reid

A friend of mine was talking to a source earlier today, and gave some itneresting insight.

After the Philadelphia Eagles announced the signing of free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, just days after trading for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Asante Samuel decided to pick up the phone. Samuel called Coach Andy Reid about the situation and revealed how much of a team player he is.

Samuel told Andy Reid that he wants to stay in Philly, and he would restructure his contract (keep in mind that WR Desean Jackson and first round pick OL Danny Watkins have been holding out).

That is great news for Eagles fans, and Samuel continues to show leadership on and off the field. He made his first appearance at training camp today, after previously being excused for personal reasons.
