Even though there have been a lot of rumors swirling around about the Philadelphia Eagles looking to trade cornerback Asante Samuel, Samuel still believes he’s an important part to them finally capturing their first Super Bowl title in franchise history.
“Any time your name comes up, of course you’re going to pay attention,” Samuel said. “It’s my future. I’m not going to dwell on it or whatever, but I just know the Eagles’ main focus is to win a Super Bowl and I think I’m an important part of that, so we’ll see how it goes.”
Samuel claims that he wants to play for the Eagles and his future is up to management.
“Of course, I love it here. This is my home. I’ve never been to a place I love more than Philadelphia,” Samuel said. “It’s up to management. I want to be here. I’ve always voiced that opinion. It’s up to them.”
At the end of the day, if the Eagles aren’t able to trade Samuel or restructure his current deal, they’ll likely be forced to cut him since he’s scheduled to make just over $9 million in 2012Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
