Samuel happy to be home, kind of

Asante Samuel

Home is what Asante Samuel called the Eagles.

“I’m home,” he said. “Ready to go to work.”

But if it’s not a happy home, then the Pro Bowl cornerback is ready to take his talents elsewhere. With Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie now in the nest, there’s talk of the Eagles trading Samuel and his huge contract.

“I want to be where I’m wanted,” Samuel told reporters yesterday. “If I’m not wanted here, if I’m not appreciated here, then life goes on. I move on. If they’re tired of me making big plays over here, we’ll see what happens.”

Samuel attended his first practice at Lehigh yesterday after being excused the first few days for personal reasons. He seemed in good spirits and met with Eagles GM Howie Roseman and coach Andy Reid to discuss the rumors. Samuel, who has 42 interceptions in eight seasons, has not asked for a trade, and he believes the trio could be special.

“More talent is always the best, so we’ll see how it goes,” Samuel said.

Defensive coordinator Juan Castillo likes the depth in his new secondary and hinted at using Asomugha like the Packers used Charles Woodson.

“We have three starters. We need three starters,” Castillo said. “That’s a great deal.”
