Default Asante Samuel looking for a 10-year, $100 million deal

Word from the combine last night was that Samuel is looking for a 10-year, $100 million deal with $30 million guaranteed up front. That would be more than the megacontract corner Nate Clements (eight years, $80 million with $22 million up front) struck with the 49ers last year.

He'll most likely get something close to that from some team. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.

I don't think Brady makes that much.

He won't get it for blowing that easy Eli INT in XLII.

he'll get it from sucker of a team. i hope that team is the patriots but i doubt it. if he thinks his career will eclipse that of d. branch or n. clements, he is kidding himself.

100 million? yea right!!! HAHAHA

what an idiot.... he doesn't play QB... and thats the only position that i think deserves anywhere near 100 million...

plenty of CB''s everywhere.... if anyone dishes that much money out to him watch them suck for the next 10 years...

Come on.. in all fairness it would have been a great grab... from what I remember he was fully extended and still off his fingertips.

Hell of a contract to give to anyone... especially a 27 year old CB.

Regardless of how the contract is structured, that is going to be WAY too much for a 37 year old CB, someday.

Then again, with the way salaries are inflating... HE MAY BE A STEAL IN 5 YEARS!

ROONEYS! INVEST!

Asuante Samuel?

I would take exactly have the contract for half the tie and put him on the other side of Ike.

That way, we are set at all our DB positions finally (well, just one more LB maybe).

That, a couple of OL'ers, and another WR to come up after Ward... and we are set for a few years.
