Report: Eagles put CB Samuel on trading block

Disgruntled Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel could find himself playing for a new team next season.

Davis: Mock Draft 3.0

With the first three picks presumably set, Charles Davis says the Browns can really shape next month's NFL draft. **More ...**

The team will try to trade Samuel before the NFL Draft begins on April 26, according to a Sunday report in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Samuel, 31, is set to make $8.4 million in base salary next season with a salary cap hit of $9.5 million as part of the contract he signed with the Eagles in 2008.

The Eagles' desire to trade Samuel is nothing new. General manager Howie Roseman said in February that the team will listen to teams interested in a Samuel deal, and the team admitted it tried to deal the cornerback last offseason.

Samuel was upset when the team acquired two high-profile cornerbacks last offseason, signing free-agent Nnamdi Asomugha and trading for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

If he is traded, it won't be a surprise to the four-time Pro Bowl selection. Samuel asked his Twitter followers last month where they'd like to see him end up.
