Not sure if will be popular choice but i love it, always been a fan of Samuel from Pats right through. like his Aggressive, risk taking style. He is capable of creating turnovers. I know only three last year but is better than that. Can't wait buy this guy?s shirt

Yes i think its a good deal,
And i think he`ll play along side GRIMES and ROBINSON at the back
It`ll add more depth to our D.
Any QB throwing on our DB BEWARE!!!!!!

Being reported that you gave the Eagles a 7th round pick for Samuel. Nice bit of business by the Falcons...

Great move, and a cap friendly deal when you consider the contracts of the top CB's.

At least we don't have to sweat on Grimes any more. If he won't sign a long term we aren't sunk at CB in 2013, and if Grimes stays we can let Robinson go if he continues to play up to his big contract. I think we are looking to re-sign grimes and to cut Robinson after the season unless he has a big year under Nolan

For a 7th round pick and just over 6m a season, we can't go wrong. TD has had done a great job getting value for money in all of our moves and re-signings this year.

I will kinda miss Samuel, a horrendous tackler but an absolute ball hawk. He's definitely an upgrade over Robinson. Good move for the Falcons.

Finally.... The Rov has come BACK...to his senses, and sorted out our damn defensive backfield! Only took ya four years Tommy boy.

In any event Im VERY happy with this.

Lets just hope we dont let any defenders get loose in the backfield, could be a great move but could just be another overrated CB al a Robinson
