Asante Samuel: 'Obviously [the Eagles] Don't Want Me There'

Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel has been the subject of trade rumors since the Eagles aquired Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and signed big-name free agent Nnadmi Asomugha. With the Eagles on their bye week Samuel appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly earlier today and voiced his displeasure.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk has the story:

"Definitely, it doesn't sit well with me," Samuel said. "Definitely, I've been nothing but what they expected me to be when they brought me there. . . . Definitely, it doesn't sit well with me. And obviously they don't want me there, so life goes on. So we'll see where I'll be at."

However; Samuel said it won't affect his play.

"Well, as long as I'm getting paid I'm gonna do my job," Samuel said. "So whoever [is] cutting the check, I do my job. . . . So I'm not worried about that."
