Samuel Update

If this is true (and I’m still skeptical), how I feel about the situation will depend entirely on how much money he’s getting. If it’s the $30 million guaranteed he’s looking for, I won’t understand it.

That’s what I wrote this morning as rumors were swirling that the Eagles were going to sign him. Now the deal appears imminent, and we actually have some numbers from a MSM source (John Clayton) — 5 years, $47 million.

How much of that money is guaranteed remains to be seen, but this less than half of what he was rumored to be demanding only a week ago! Again, we’ll see what part of this contract is “for real”, but I’ve gone from puzzled and disappointed to being a bit excited. I’m quite curious to see what the plans are for the rest of the secondary and what the players think about those plans.
