Na-na-na-na, Na-na-na-na, Hey-ey, Good-bye

I think that it's pretty safe to say that Asante Samuel will not be a Patriot much longer, particularly if he thinks his contract demands are realistic. I give him an outside chance of being in the red, white and blue next season, but based on what I read in the Boston Globe, Samuel has no actual clue of his market value...

As part of the recent negotiations between cornerback Asante Samuel and the New England Patriots, Samuel's representatives were seeking a contract that included about $30 million to be paid out in the first three years of the deal.
The Patriots were offering a package that averaged around $6 million per season, and although it is not known how much money would be paid out in the first three years, one thing is clear: It wasn't close to the $30 million Samuel was seeking, which led to his recent comments about being unhappy with the state of negotiations.
