Citing two league sources, the Denver Post reports that the Broncos have "expressed interest in acquiring" Asante Samuel from the Eagles.

Per the report, Denver made two proposals to Philadelphia. One involved a fifth- or sixth-round pick, and the other a player currently on Denver's roster.

The Eagles turned both offers down.

With the draft less than a week away and Philly's sense of urgency growing, it's still possible that trade talks could be rekindled but according to the Post, the Broncos are pessimistic about a deal getting done.

On Wednesday, the Nashville Tennessean reported that the Titans are "still not in the mix" to trade for Asante Samuel, citing Samuel's large base salaries in addition to the compensation requested by the birds.

For a deal to get one, two things must happen.  Samuel must restructure his deal, and the Eagles must lower their asking price.

They likely will as the draft nears.
