The Charlie Samuels case has been adjourned until October 18, according to a spokeswoman for the Queens District Criminal Court.

Samuels' attorneys appeared with lawyers from the district attorney's office before Justice Fernando Camacho in Queens Supreme Court on Monday.

Both sides apparently need more time to talk things over so Camacho adjourned the case. The prosecution and defense could be in discussions for a plea.

In May, Samuels was arraigned on charges that he criminally possessed nearly $2.3 million worth of game-used memorabilia -- including signed jerseys, bats and baseballs -- that belonged to the Mets' organization.

Samuels, who was with the team 27 seasons, was also charged with embezzling $24,955 from the Mets by submitting inflated expense claims and failing to report or pay taxes on $203,789 in tips and dues that he received from Mets players and others in 2008 and 2009.
