According to Pat Yasinkas at ESPN, Asante will only be a 2.875 million cap hit in 2012. Considering his hit for the Eagles for 2012 was going to be somewhere around 8 to 10 million, this is impressive on every conceivable level.
Even better? The Eagles are still on the hook for 1 million of Samuel's cap hit for 2012. Anything bad for the Eagles is just gravy in my book.
Say what you will about The Comrade, but his ability to snag players at great prices sets this franchise up very well for the long-term.
