The Falcons story said Atlanta traded an undisclosed draft pick, but the Eagles official Twitter account said it was a seventh-round pick.
Earlier, it was reported that Samuel had agreed to a restructured contract, which seemed to make the trade all but official. Now it is official. From the story on the Falcons' team site:
"We are pleased to be able to add a player of Asante's caliber to our roster," Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. "Asante has established himself as a very productive player during his career. He is a proven player in this league and we feel that this move upgrades the talent of our roster and improves our football team.
Since 2006, Asante Samuel has a league-leading 38 interceptions. He started all 14 games he appeared in last season, but his sizable contract has had him on the trading block for a long time. As mentioned above, the Eagles now have 10 picks in this year's draft, which begins tomorrow.
