Reid: We Are All On The Same Page

Head coach Andy Reid and cornerback Asante Samuel met earlier this afternoon after Samuel made some remarks about the front office.

Samuel met with reporters before leaving the NovaCare Complex and said that he had a much better understanding of the business of the NFL and wants to focus on getting a win over Dallas on Sunday.

Reid issued a statement through the team a short while ago which explained that after the meeting with Samuel the two "left with a positive feeling going forward."

"I am aware of how Asante felt and we have since talked. We both left with a positive feeling going forward. As I have said previously, when we acquired Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha, we had received numerous calls on the availability of our cornerbacks. After discussing significant trade offers with other teams, we decided to keep all three cornerbacks on our team," Reid said in the statement.

"Asante is a valuable member of our team and we appreciate all that he brings to this organization. As far as my relationship with Howie and Joe, I have a great deal of respect for both of them and I know we are all on the same page."
