Yahoo! Sports’ Michael Silver reports that the Philadelphia Eagles are looking for two second-round picks in return for CB Asante Samuel but so far haven’t been able to find a team willing to part with such a package.
The Eagles have publicly stated that they’re willing to move forward with all three cornerbacks. Philadelphia will be able to find ways to get all three players involved this season and having depth at a crucial position is always a benefit.
Andy Reid and company have done a good job of turning their assets into quality draft picks and they’re not going to give Samuel away just because they signed Nnamdi Asomugha. I’d expect to see him in Philly for the entire 2011 season.
