I would take him, but I think the price will be too high.

We can't afford a former & aged wide receiver who hasn't played in 2 years and two 'B' players like Jericho Cotchery and aged tight-ends to fill a backup position. What makes you think we can afford Asante Samuel?

I beleive Samuel has a cap number of close to 8-10 mil . Bringin him here means we would likely lose Timmons or Troy or both after this season. Not worth it in my opinion.

Hey, I was going to suggest we pick up Revis. It's about as
plausible.

The question was "Do we want him?" Of course we do but where do you make cap room for him? Cut Aaron Smith? Cut William Gay? Who else???
