PATS SLAP SAMUEL

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the New England Patriots have applied the franchise tag to cornerback Asante Samuel.

Samuel has emerged as a quality cornerback, and would have likely drawn plenty of attention in a light free-agent market. Historically, even so-so corners get overpaid in the early days of the league's annual shopping spree; Samuel surely would have cashed in this year.

The use of the tag also sets the stage for another ugly mess between the Pats and one of the team's key players. Last year, the agent for Deion Branch antagonized the front office by grandstanding in the media, and Samuel's agent already has begun that same process this year.

If Samuel accepts the tender, he'll receive a one-year guaranteed salary of $7.79 million.

Law wanted 10 mil last year and wasn't worth it. Could Samuel be looking for the same amount or maybe even more?

This means one of two things: The Patriots plan to trade Asante because the talks over salary have gone amiss.. Or they really do want him long term and are forcing his hand. Either way I don't know if I like it.

The official Pats site is usually way behind ESPN, NFL-dot-com, etc, in relaeasing info on the team.

Per Reiss
Samuel reaction
Quote:
The agent for Asante Samuel said his client is not upset about the Patriots placing the franchise tag on him.

"We don't look at it as a bad thing," Alonzo Shavers said on Friday night. "This is a step in the process in working toward a long-term deal."

Asked if Samuel would hold out, Shavers said: "That is not our intention at all."

That's almost $500,000 a game.

Looks pretty promising so far. Unlike the Branch ordeal. Of course, Branch changed his tune heavily as the season drew closer... Time will tell for Samuel.

Per Reiss:

February 16, 2007
Belichick statement

The Patriots just sent out the following statement from coach Bill Belichick after the team placed the franchise tag on Asante Samuel:

"Asante Samuel is an outstanding player who has been a consistent contributor for us for several years. We hope Asante remains a Patriot for many seasons to come."

Sounds like its a love fest over there....for now.
