Asante Samuel Trade Rumors: Falcons In Talks, Broncos No Longer Interested

With the 2012 NFL Draft quickly approaching, the Philadelphia Eagles are running out of time to trade veteran corner back Asante Samuel for a low-round draft pick. Luckily for the Eagles, the trade rumors are swirling and it seems as they're some teams interested in trading for the former All-Pro, one of them being the Atlanta Falcons, says FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer. Glazer says the Eagles and Falcons have held talks over the past couple days.

Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos, who were reportedly one of the original teams interested in acquiring Samuel, has slowly lost interest and has backed-out of talks, says ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.

If Samuel is traded, it is likely to happen before or during the 2012 draft, which gets underway this Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

According to Adam Schefter, Buffalo Bills free agent offensive tackle, Demetrius Bell, is scheduled to meet with the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday afternoon.

Pro Football Focus graded Peters as, far and away, the best tackle in the NFL last season with a grade of +27.6 on their grading scale. The next highest tackle was Dave Steward at +14.7, to give you an idea of how dominant Peters was.

As for Bell, PFF ranked him as the 17th best offensive tackle, tied with Jared Gaither, with a rating of +6.8

Philadelphia Eagles Free Agency 2012: Todd Herremans Signs Contract Extension, According To Reports

A few hours before the NFL's Free Agent period officially began Tuesday, the Philadelphia Eagles signed offensive linemen Todd Herremans to a contract extension that will keep him in Philly until 2016, says reports. Herremans, who was drafted and has played for the Eagles since 2005, reportedly signed a three-year extension for $21 million with $11 million being guaranteed.

"We are excited to be able to sign Todd to a new contract," said Eagles head coach Andy Reid. "Todd’s intelligence, toughness, durability, and leadership are second to none. Very few players in the NFL can play at an extremely high level at both the guard and tackle positions and Todd has done that for us. He has been a big part of the success of our offense over the last several years."

Last year, after playing most of his career at guard, Herremans was moved to right tackle when the Eagles lost starter Winston Justice and signed Ryan Harris. During his tenure as an Eagle, Herremans has started in 89 of his 91 games.
