    Yeah I could care less about tampering. I'm not even sure what it matters. It probably helps the team to know the market for their players so they can decide how long they want to concentrate on resigning them and when to allocate recourses time elsewhere.


    Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

      I'm kind of glad the Patriots didn't pony up that kind of money to keep Samuel, even though he's been such a playmaker for us.

        This signing really puts Philly on the map. If they get all the tools in place they could be dangerous.

          Samuel isn't shutdown, but he's a playmaking corner who does a pretty good job defending his man. Over the last two regular seasons, he's accounted for 16 INTs and 32 pass deflections. Include the postseasons, and it's 19 INTs and 43 PDs over the last two years, and he's missed only one game. Very quick guy.

          I think Philly is a great fit for him, they play an aggressive scheme that mixes up man and zone coverage which suits his versatility.
          Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

            Why would the Eagles sign the top corner on the market after having 2 solid corners in Sheppard and Brown?

            Not that i dont like the move. The 95 million is obviously fluff, the guaranteed money is what matters. But i didnt think the Eagles had such a need at corner that they had to spend that kind of guaranteed money on it...

              I definitely thinks he fits Philly's scheme more than he does New Orleans. I'm relieved.
              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

              “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                A) One of the two is always hurt. If it's not one, it's the other.
                B) Brown could move to S, or at least play nickel.

I don't think they had any intention of signing him to close to that kind of money, but I can guarantee they were pissed that people were talking to their player while he was still their property. If a little handshake deal was made where they gave permission to the Eagles as part of a Lito Sheppard trade, then I am cool with it. But if that's that, I don't see how this is fair to the Patriots or any other team that followed the rules and planned on getting involved.

                      And for the record, I think people should be just as pissed about what the Dolphins and 49ers were doing actually announcing deals a quarter after midnight and basically acting like high school seniors trying to show off to everyone that they are drinking beer. I am in shock at all of the tampering going on and just how OK everyone seems to think it is.

                      He was signed about 12 hours+ after the start of FA. They have nothing to complain about as usual.


                      Though the 49ers and Dolphins having guys contracts announced merely minutes after the fact.. I could see.

                      Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

                        Deshan Foster and Allen Rossum were released from their teams. The 49ers wouldn't have to wait for today to contact them.

                        If the 49ers were accused of tampering it would be for O'sullivan and Thomas. And they didn't sign the contracts- just agreed to them. No signing yet.

                          Furthermore, after such a tumultuous year, I doubt the Patriots really want to be wading into those waters. Let's be realistic. Everyone tampers. I'm sure there's some team in the past that probably has evidence of tampering on the Pats. You don't want to walk into those waters, and have teams gunning after you for all the wrong reasons. These are still people after all, people that could hold grudges.

                          I don't expect the Pats to cry foul. They were expecting Asante to be gone.
                          Everyone does a lot of things that other teams don't think is a big deal. It didn't stop the Jets from crying foul on the Pats for a video camera or the Vikings for crying foul on Belichick over the Garrett Mills situation.

                          In this case, it is pretty easy to prove tampering because Asante's agent has a really big mouth.

                          That's why I am saying it would make sense if the Patriots were getting a discount on Lito Sheppard via trade in return for them allowing the Eagles to very blatantly bring their guy in for the dog and pony show that fast and before anyone else could really lock anything down.

                          And if any team is going to file a grievence over tampering, it is going to be the Patriots. They did it over Parcells, they did it over Martin and they did it over Branch. Granted, that was all the Jets, but they got a ton of draft picks over two out of those three, and I just don't think it will sit well with Bob Kraft that his team gets penalized for breaking rules (as they should have) and others are not.

                          We'll see. I have no doubt that I have a huge chance of being completely wrong about what will happen. Doesn't make it right, though...

                            Jay, why does tampering matter when you know as well as all of us do that the Pats were not going to match the Eagles offer?

                              And they had a press release out at the start of business this morning letting all media outlets know that Astante "will be made available to the media at 4:30 p.m. EST."

                              How many visiting free agents have scheduled press conferences before they move on to the next stop on the tour? None that I've heard of.

                              We all know this deal was not done today.

                              That's exactly who I am talking about in the 49ers case...

                                Seems to be a done deal. Not as big as people were saying:

                                5 years, $47.2mm.
