Asante Takes Jab At Reid Over Castillo Firing

One person who voiced his opinion publicly soon after the Eagles announced Juan Castillo’s firing was Asante Samuel.

Here’s what he Tweeted:


The Eagles, of course, traded Samuel to the Falcons during the offseason. The second Tweet references an Inquirer story that reported Reid felt the cornerback was in steep decline, and that was a major factor in dealing him.

Samuel and the Falcons visit the Linc after the bye.
