Samuel set for massive FA deal,

“Don’t talk to me about the Clements deal,” Shavers (SAMUELS' AGENT) said, with mild disdain. “Everybody brings that up to me and that’s not anything like what I’m thinking. That was last year. That’s history.”

Without being too detailed, Shavers’ new touchstone is the six-year, $72 million contract Indianapolis defensive end Dwight Freeney received before last season. That deal included $30 million in guarantees. The deal also was the biggest ever for a defensive player. While Shavers admits that pass rushing defensive ends are more valuable than cornerbacks in the pecking order of NFL position importance, the difference isn’t enough to put a comparison out of the realm of discussion.

“I think you start at where Freeney is and work your way down, not from Clements and work up,” said Shavers, who expects interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, New Orleans Saints and possibly Dallas Cowboys. He said the Patriots remain a serious contender to re-sign Samuel."

Re: Samuel set for massive FA deal,

I think what he's asking is "too far." The thing I would say is that I hope he's not guaranteed the money. I hope that he has to earn it, I'm tired of seeing people sign fat contracts and then blow.
