Questionable moves in Patriots history

It was all about terms for cornerback Asante Samuel. He wanted to sign for better terms with the Patriots, but didn't get an offer he liked and left on less than great ones. He traded in his chowder for cheesesteak and signed a massive deal with Philadelphia in the 2008 offseason - a six-year, $57 million contract with $20 million guaranteed. When Samuel's name was announced after he made a tackle in his return to Foxborough as an Eagle, boos rained down. "They love to hate me," he said. "They love me, they miss me, but I'm not with them so they hate me."
