Has "Zant" found a new nest already?
According to the Philadelphia Eagles' website, free agent CB Asante Samuel is visiting that NFC East team today and will be addressing the local media there late this afternoon.
And it could be close to the end of the line for Randall Gay in Foxborough, too. According to his agent, Albert Elias, Gay and the Patriots are far apart in contract talks.
"Basically, it's very disappointing that we weren't able to work something out because both Randall and myself really wanted him to remain a Patriot, but we're going to keep the lines of communication open," Elias told The Boston Globe.
The Patriots linebacker, according to published reports today, has agreed on a multiyear contract to return to New England for at least his 13th season, and possibly beyond.
Teammate and fellow LB Junior Seau, however, revealed that he had shoulder surgery already this offseason and hasn't decided whether he'll continue playing football or not.
"I have a choice of playing or a choice of surfing," Seau said from his home in the San Diego area. "Those are great choices to have."
And as reported by a Louisiana newspaper, The Daily Advertiser, New England RB Kevin Faulk has passed a drug test and will not enter the league's substance abuse program.
Faulk, you may recall, was charged with marijuana possession at a recent rap concert in his home state.
