SAMUEL SAID TO BE A "DONE DEAL" IN NEW ORLEANS

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

Yeah, it's tampering. But no one seems to care about that.

Samuel supposedly is looking for a contract with an average value in excess of $10 million per year.

Re: Asante to Saints a "done deal"

Asante is an exciting pickup, and has been a good corner for New England.

My only concern is that I feel like the ghost of Tebucky Jones is coming back to haunt our secondary (Given that they both come from N.E.).

I know their positions are different, so spare me that... But, both were/are believed to be in the prime of their careers, both coming from a Super Bowl winning Patriots team, both had a lot of HYPE and N.E. let them go...

Is this a homerun? 10 million a year? I gots concerns...

Re: Asante to Saints a "done deal"

If we don't get more pressure up front, and a better LB corps, then we could have Champ Bailey, AND Asante Samuels, and we would still have major problems. I hope that we do get him, but not at the expense of our front seven.

"The Saints are currently the leader to land Samuel, although that could change"

FOX Sports on MSN - John Czarnecki - Talk isn't just about college stars at combine

"One problem with tampering is that teams sometimes lose verbal agreements when the real thing starts. It fortuiosly happened to the Eagles in 2006 when they thought they had LeCharles Bentley signed. Samuel may have a great offer from New Orleans, but another team could always jump in."
