Asante Samuel Trade Rumors: Tennessee Titans Interested In Philadelphia Eagles CB

The Tennessee Titans reportedly have interest in acquiring Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel.

A league source told Titan Insider's Terry McCormick that the cornerback-hungry Titans are considering Samuel as one of their options, though they could also choose to build secondary depth through the 2012 NFL Draft.

McCormick reports that the Eagles are looking to net at least a third-round draft choice in any Samuel trade, and the cornerback's contract could also be an obstacle to any deal.

Samuels' agent, Alonzo Shavers, said he is allowing the Eagles to examine the trade market without his input.

"At this point, the Philadelphia Eagles are driving the train. They don't have to do anything," Shavers said. "They have always been very professional about their business and we would expect them to continue to be."

Shavers added that, "At this point, nothing has materialized," regarding any move for Samuel, and that he and his client would likely be informed only if and when the possibility of a trade becomes serious.
