The deal to send cornerback Asante Samuel to the Atlanta Falcons from the Philadelphia Eagles has been finalized, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
As part of the trade, Samuel and the Falcons have agreed to terms on a three-year, $18.5 million deal.
Mike Klis reported last week that Denver was essentially out of the running for Samuel, and now it's official. Samuel had been due about $21.5M over just two seasons according to the terms of his prior contract.
Atlanta sent Philly a seventh-round pick in return for Samuel; according to Kils, Denver had been offering either a fifth- or sixth-rounder, or a player.
