09:07 AM ET 02.19 | If the Eagles decide to keep Asante Samuel, their star-studded cornerback trio can play together and function effectively. That's the message sent recently by general manager Howie Roseman, who said the combination of Samuel, Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would be more imposing in 2012 than last season. By the same token, Roseman didn't dismiss speculation that the 31-year-old Samuel, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who ranks fifth among active defensive backs with 45 career interceptions, could be headed out the door.

They have too many stars and not enough chemistry in Philly. Get rid of a few of the big names and get in some lesser known guys who are hungry to play.

That star studded trio and "Dream team" rallied to an 8 and 8 record...not too impressive..

He is due to make $9.4 million this year. Only a few teams have that kind of cap room.
That is a lot of pumping.

Anybody trading him would probably ask him to re-work his contract or they wouldn't take him

I have an idea, why not keep the team and replace all the coaches

Does he ever?

No need to pump up the man's value.

He's picked off more passes since 2006 than any other player in the league.
