According to Adam Schefter (Not Adarn) of ESPN, Philadelphia Eagles Pro-Bowl Cornerback Asante Samuel is close to being traded to the Atlanta Falcons for a late round pick.

The Atlanta Falcons are on the verge of acquiring Philadelphia Eagles Pro-Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel for a late-round pick, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Wednesday.

A deal is likely to be completed as early as Thursday and before the NFL draft, sources told Schefter.

Samuel, 31, is a four-time Pro Bowl pick. He would give new Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan a strong trio at cornerback with Dunta Robinson and Brent Grimes, who Tuesday signed his franchise tag tender. Grimes will make $10.262 million this season.
