I’m not sure if Atlanta Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel was just reminiscing or what, but on Tuesday afternoon he openly questioned why the Philadelphia Eagles traded him this offseason.
Last time I played against the Eagles I had two interceptions and 1 for a TD. #justsaying What was they thinking!

Samuel has been one of the most dominant corners in the NFL, but he’s much more effective in zone coverage then in man coverage. With the Eagles planning on using more man coverages this season to suit Nhamdi Asomugha, it wasn’t worth it for them to keep Samuel.
