Asante Samuel Trade Rumors: Titans Less Seriously Interested Than Believed

Perhaps the Philadelphia Eagles aren't that close to trading Asante Samuel, as Jim Wyatt of The Tennesseean recently put out a succession of tweets that has tempered some of the buzz surrounding a potential trade.

Wyatt denies the CSN Philly report that a deal is near to send Samuel to the Titans, stating that although Tennessee does have lukewarm interest in acquiring him, there's "no way" they'd ship a third round pick in exchange for his services.

Samuel is on the block as the Eagles work to re-allocate salary cap resources. Both he and Nnamdi Asomugha are due to have cap hits around $11 million for the upcoming season, and it's likely necessary he'll have to restructure his deal for a trade to be consummated.

Should Samuel be traded, the Eagles will likely insert Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie into the starting lineup.
