Top 12 reasons the Eagles are trying to move Asante Samuel

12) In general, they seem to do much better in trades than free agent signings

11) In theory, they still have more guys who are actually qualified to play corner than to play linebacker

10) Somehow not thrilled about the idea of spending $8.5 million for an aging cover guy with no shot at moving to safety

9) Two years of him with Dominique Rodgers Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha would just be too much high-level CB play to be fair to the rest of the league

8) Since they actually traded for a linebacker, kind of interested in having money to pay them

7) Want to make sure that after signing DeSean Jackson and Evan Mathis, Samuel is especially motivated to have a fantastic end career

6) Paying a cornerback who doesn't like to tackle very much isn't terribly satisfying

5) After six months of hearing how they had to move him after the Asomugha signing, there's something of a movement to it

4) He took a long time to come around on how much of a super genius Juan Castillo is

3) Since he only had three INTs last year, as opposed to 9 in 2009 and 7 in 2010, he must not be good any more

2) As they are clearly all-in on Asomugha, having a CB on the roster that might be better than him is a little awkward

1) Every five years, his team has to let him go and live to regret it
