Say it ain't so Asante

Recent reports coming out of the Patriots' camp say that Asante Samuel is extemely unhappy that the conversations to extend his franchise contract to a long term deal have stalled. He had this to say to the NFL Network last night:
“This is to let everybody know that I’m not happy anymore and things are not going well,” Samuel said. “At first I thought it was going well, but it’s not. We have a difference of opinion in my value. They think I’m worth one price and the other teams think I’m worth a lot more. If a long-term deal can’t be done at fair numbers for me and New England, then I want to be traded.”

Ok, ok, I get it...the Pats do this to all of their Bill we trust...yada, yada yada. But come on! This guy lead the NFL with 10 picks last year on a team where the secondary has more holes in it than Tom Boyce's underwear. With the sick acquisitions the Pats have made to the defense, now is not the time to piss off the best player you have in the secondary. So please, pretty please......MAKE ASANTE HAPPY!!!

I would love to have Samuel back, dont get me wrong, but after watching all the games, I am positive he is overrated in the market place. If you so many of his picks, they were thrown right at him (they weren't the ridiculous athletic pics that Law use to make or that I make in flag football). We dont have the numbers so we do not know if the are truly under valueing him or if badly managed (redskins) teams are putting bugs in his year about his inflated value. Remember Adrien Beltre? Scott Bores put a package together showing how he could be one of the best third baseman ever! How is the one year wonder doing now?

I don't agree with this post. Expect a rebuttal post later this evening.
