Absent for the start of training camp for an excused personal issue, cornerback Asante Samuel went back to work Monday.
Samuel reported for camp and immediately took a physical, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. He could be on the field by the afternoon, joining Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
For now, Nnamdi Asomugha is watching from the sideline. The Eagles seem very open to trading Samuel and his $5.9 million salary, even though it would be fun to see the three cornerbacks play together.
Philly may have to wait for an injury elsewhere in the preseason to get a good offer. It still wouldn’t shock us if Samuel stayed with the team.
