Eagle says front office playing fantasy football

PHILADELPHIA — Unhappy he was trade bait, Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel criticized management and compared the team's front office to people who play fantasy football.

"Couple people upstairs might not want me, but who cares. They've probably never played football," Samuel said Wednesday. "It's a business and they run it like a business. … They're playing with a lot of money, playing fantasy football, doing their thing."

Asked if he was referring to GM Howie Roseman and president Joe Banner, Samuel said: "Do they fit the comment I made? There you go. You think they're upstairs playing fantasy football with the owner's money?"

More Eagles: Quarterback Vince Young is being sued by a Dallas strip club manager he allegedly punched in the face last year. Creiton Kinchen claims Young hit him after he refused to convert $8,000 off a credit card into single dollar bills. Young was cited for misdemeanor assault.

Viking fined $20K for kick: Defensive end Brian Robison was fined $20,000 by the NFL for kicking Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang in the groin after a field goal attempt Sunday.

Stafford practices: Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford practiced on his injured right ankle, but coach Jim Schwartz hasn't said anything definitive on Stafford's status yet.

Owens offer: Receiver Terrell Owens, who wants to return to the NFL after rehabbing a left knee injury, has a contract offer from the Arena Football League's Chicago Rush for 2012. Owens' agent did not comment.

Rams: Quarterback Sam Bradford (high left ankle sprain) did not practice so it appears A.J. Feeley is likely to start this week.
