NFL news, notes from SB Nation: Asante Samuel released by Atlanta Falcons

News and notes for Wednesday from around the NFL

Otto Greule Jr


Let's look around SB Nation and see what NFL news the other fine football writers around the network are reporting and talking about. We have always called it 'Touring The Nation.'

The Seattle Seahawks' Super Bowl victory parade was today. You can catch up with all the fun at Field Gulls.

The Atlanta Falcons have released cornerback Asante Samuel and linebacker Stephen Nicholas. As much as Samuel has tormented Eli Manning over the years I am going to guess many would like to see the four-time Pro Bowler with the Giants. He is, however, 33 and coming off a poor season.

The Daily Norseman is bumming that Matt Cassel will void his contract and hit free agency. Over at Bucs Nation, they are recommending that the Bucs consider signing Cassel. That would be a switch after the Bucs released Josh Freeman and the Vikings picked him up in a failed attempt to replace Cassel.

The Phinsider says the Dolphins lack leadership, not talent.

Behind the Steel Curtain says Terry Bradshaw gets no respect in debates about who is the greatest quarterback of all time.  News flash! That's because he isn't in that discussion.

SB Nation writes that the Philadelphia Eagles have a tough decision at wide receiver. Could that end up helping the Giants?
