Jason La Canfora Says Lions Aren't Interested In Asante Samuel

Do the Detroit Lions have interest in trading for Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel? Mike O'Hara says yes, which makes sense considering the Lions reportedly came close to trading for Samuel last summer. However, if you ask NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, the Lions are not considered one of the teams interested in acquiring Samuel. La Canfora tweeted this on Thursday afternoon:

The big cap number is likely the reason why the Lions apparently don't have interest. Samuel is set to make $9.9 million in 2012 and $11.4 million next year. While he reportedly is open to restructuring his deal, that is a lot of money to move around, as I said earlier.

For now, it appears we can tone down all of the talk about trade scenarios involving Samuel, but you can bet the topic of adding help at cornerback isn't going away as the offseason progresses.
