Samuel to the Sunshine State?

The Eagles have gotten serious about shopping Asante Samuel, with NFL.com reporting that his asking price has dropped to a 5th or 6th rounder. Now, with a $10 million+ salary over each of the two years remaining on his contract, that’s a pricy pick up, but I think Asante could fit perfectly with the Buccaneers.

Samuel is 31, but he’s still playing at a high level and the Bucs should still have a decent amount of cap room left over. Not to mention Samuel’s signing guards the team against the possibility that Morris Claiborne goes to Minnesota or Cleveland, and makes it an easier choice if Trent Richardson is still on the board.
I would love to see the Bucs get Samuel and then either use their #5 pick on S Mark Barron. I’m increasingly high Barron as I think he can be a valuable assest as a defensive leader, as well as a game changing playmaker over the middle.
And really this deal works out well for the Eagles to, because if you’re giving up a guy like Asante Samuel for a 5th round pick, it may as well be one in the top 5.
