Eagles Trade Rumors: Asante Samuel Offer Would Have To Be "Exceptional," According To Report

A trade offer would have to be "exceptional" for the Philadelphia Eagles to part ways with cornerback Asante Samuelreports Reuben Frank of Comcast Sports Philadelphia

The Eagles are open to trading all-pro cornerback Asante Samuel before Tuesday's trade deadline, but no deal is imminent and the offer would have to be exceptional to pry Samuel away, a league source said.        

The Eagles are loaded at cornerback with Samuel, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha, but have nonetheless given up an average of 24.2 points per game, tied for 22nd in the NFL.

Samuel led the NFC with seven interceptions last year despite missing five games, but has just one so far this season. He is set to earn $5.9 million this year, $8.4 million 2012 and $10.4 million in 2013. Trade rumors have surrounded him since the Eagles acquired Asomugha and Rodgers-Cromartie this offseason.
