Asante's Agent: No Worries

Asante Samuel went from "assertive" to "absent."

Samuel, the most vocal Eagles defender in last week's OTA drills, opted  to take advantage of the "voluntary" part of the voluntary minicamp, a team spokesman said. He was not present for Monday's practice.

A team source said Eagles coach Andy Reid was disappointed, but such absences are not unheard of among veteran players who feel they got enough work in the first week, or who have pressing personal business.

That seems to be the case with Samuel. In a text-message response to a question from the Daily News, Samuel's agent, Alonzo Shaver, said: "He is tending to some family matters. No worries."

Shaver did not indicate whether Samuel planned to attend workouts the rest of the week or identify where Samuel was amid a report that he had returned to Florida.
