Asante Samuel Released By Atlanta Falcons As DB Hits Career Low
Well, the Atlanta Falcons finally pulled the plug on Asante Samuel. It’s always tough to see a four-time All-Pro like Samuel go through the shredder, but it’s a part of the game and we’ve grown to learn the temporary nature of the NFL. Unfortunately, football fans may never see Samuel playing on Sundays again, unless he’s doing so for a local flag football game at a church in his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Let’s face it, Samuel hasn’t been the same defensive back since leaving the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2010. Sure, the play-making cornerback gave the Falcons a temporary jolt of toughness, but the cream always rises to the top and Samuel’s stock continues to drop by the day.
To be fair, it’s really rare for a defensive back of any kind to remain relevant after 11 years at the professional level. And despite being benched toward the end of 2013, Samuel’s attitude and style of play have both withstood the test of time. Even still, the end of the line is near for this edgy defensive back, as the NFL is definitely a young man’s game, which means there aren’t too many roster spots available for this 33-year-old defensive back.
Even if Samuel slashes his asking price in half, he likely won’t find an NFL home this offseason and that’s just the sad reality.
