Samson Satele is happy with the trade to Oakland

About how Samson is happy with his trade to Oakland, his agent Leo Goeas said:
“Samson is excited about the trade. He wanted to be some place where he would be appreciated. As soon as Jake Grove signed with the Dolphins, the Raiders wanted (Satele) at center.” (HA)

About the trade to Oakland, Samson said:
“I’m happy. It’s close to home. It’s just a hop over the ocean.” (HA)

“When I got the call from the (Dolphins’) GM, I thanked him. It’s a business. They went one way. I’m happy to go to the Raiders. It’s a fresh start.” (HA)

HA Note: “Satele started every regular-season game in 2008 despite a torn labrum in his right (snapping) shoulder. During the postseason surgery, doctors discovered that there was a piece of bone that was broken off from the shoulder. A procedure was performed to correct that tear. Goeas said the surgeries were successful, and Satele will be ready to play. Satele will earn $460,000 in base salary this season, and $550,000 in 2010.”
