According to Geoff Mosher, Asante Samuel has come to Lehigh today. He had been out on an unspecified excused absence.
Speculation has been rampant that Samuel will be traded. For his part, he says he wants to remain with the Eagles.
Having him around camp could make things a bit more interesting, for sure.
We’re hearing and reading that DeSean Jackson could come to camp in the next few days. It’s our opinion that this absolutely would not happen without a new contract, so we think there’s been serious progress on that front between his team and the Eagles front office.
The Eagles made huge waves in the NFL this weekend, surprising everyone by getting the best free agent on the market in Nnamdi Asomugha. Asomugha has signed a 5 year, $60 million contract. Additionally, the Eagles signed Cullen Jenkins to shore up their defensive line and Donald Lee, who will join Brent Celek and Clay Harbor on the tight end depth chart.
