I think they should focus on a guard like Faneca more than Asante Samuel. Though, a Revis/Samuel duo is dangerous.

Eagles sign free-agent cornerback Samuel to six-year deal

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA --The Philadelphia Eagles (http://www.nfl.com/teams/philadelphiaeagles/profile?team=PHI) have signed free-agent cornerback Asante Samuel (http://www.nfl.com/players/asantesamuel/profile?id=SAM616410) to a six-year, $57 million contract on Friday.
The deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money and $32 million in the first three years of the contract, reports NFL Network's Adam Schefter.
Samuel spent the last five seasons with New England and had 16 interceptions the last two years.
Samuel also tied the NFL career playoff record with three interceptions returned for TDs.
Philadelphia had only 11 interceptions last year and failed to score a defensive touchdown. Its defense had an NFL-worst 19 takeaways.
The Eagles will likely trade or shift positions for either Lito Sheppard (http://www.nfl.com/players/litosheppard/profile?id=SHE556636) or Sheldon Brown.
Samuel, a two-time Pro Bowl selection with two Super Bowl rings, has 22 career interceptions. He was protected by New England last year by the franchise player tag.
