When Asante Samuel first established himself as a shutdown corner for the New England Patriots, it was no secret he was in line for a big pay day. Unsurprisingly, the sack of money was never going to come from the Pats. Since Bill Belichick took over, spending big bucks on cornerbacks has never been an option for New England. When Samuel’s deal was expiring, many thought the Patriots were being unfair for not paying him. Others were content with letting the egotistical 27-year-old — and his “Get Paid” tattoo — find a new home. The way things are headed, Asante could be looking for a third home in the near future.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Eagles Blog, Samuel seems a little put off by the Eagles going out and getting two top-notch corners in Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
“I want to be where I’m wanted,” Samuel said. “If I’m wanted here, If I’m not appreciated here life goes on. I move on.”
