SEVERAL TEAMS INTERESTED IN SHEPPARD by Michael David Smith

It's only been 24 hours since the Philadelphia Eagles signed cornerback Asante Samuel, but they're already hearing from teams interested in trading for the cornerback Samuel replaced in the starting lineup.

A league source tells PFT that several teams are showing preliminary interest in trading for cornerback Lito Sheppard. Those teams include the Texans, Saints , Buccaneers, Browns, Rams and Jets.

A team can never have too many good cornerbacks, and the Eagles could choose to keep Sheppard, especially if they move right cornerback Sheldon Brown to safety. But given how much interest there is in Sheppard, it seems more likely that he'll be shipped elsewhere.

Re: Lito Sheppard

I'm guessing since they don't have to move him and that CB's are in demand that they'll want high draft picks (yes more than one) in this and next years drafts. And perhaps Drew's first born...
They really have nothing to lose by asking for the moon and stars now that they've upgraded big time in the secondary.

One can only hope Devery Henderson now that he has signed a one year contract with the Saints!

Re: Lito Sheppard

If Loomis mans up and pulls off a trade for Sheppard, this off-season is officially a winner.

Re: Lito Sheppard

Agreed... getting Sheppard would make my off season. Well that and a good draft.

Yep. And if Dorsey falls to #10 I might just die of a heart attack from the excitement right then and there. LOL

Re: Lito Sheppard

I would say Rivers(draft) and Sheppard, this would be the most anticipated year ever on both sides of the ball. We would finally have the playmaking defense that would make us legit contenders.

Re: Lito Sheppard

What would you give up for him?

Henderson and a 2nd? Seems like they always need recievers. We always need Cb.
