The talks were so far along that the Broncos presented the Eagles with two proposals: one involving a fifth- or sixth-round draft pick, the other involving an undisclosed player. But the Broncos don't believe they will be able to strike a deal with the Eagles.

Samuel still has two years left on his contract. He's owed $10 million with a $100,000 offseason workout bonus next season and $11.5 million with a $100,000 workout bonus in 2013.

Samuel started 14 games for the Eagles last season, recording 34 tackles, one forced fumble and three interceptions.
