The upcoming 2014 NFL Draft reminds me a lot of the 2002 draft in the way it feels like it is shaping up. The Eagles, coming off a winning/playoff season, picked 26th that year. They selected cornerback Lito Sheppard in the 1st Round.
A playmaker at corner…seems like a plausible pursuit in 2014, too.
Sheppard had an outstanding career at Florida. He contributed to the Eagles secondary...
Many have wondered whether or not Donovan McNabb lost his lunch during the waning minutes of Super Bowl XXXIX.
Thanks to Lito Sheppard, you can wonder no more.
In a recent appearance on WIP radio, the former Eagles cornerback confirmed that McNabb did indeed puke.
"Yes," said Sheppard, via Philly.com. "He did."
McNabb has consistently denied tossing his cookies...
Jabar Gaffney took to Twitter today to vent about his “soon-to-be” ex wife and fellow Gator Lito Sheppard.
In just an hour, Gaffney demonstrated exactly how not to use social media, and it’s not the first time. Back in November, Gaffney utilized Twitter for another probable cause: telling a Cowboy fan to go kill himself.
Can’t really pull out the trusty “hacked” excuse...
Jabar Gaffney’s marriage does not seem to be in a good place if the tweets sent from his verified Twitter account are any indication. Thursday was apparently his anniversary with his wife, but he says she was not around. Based on a tweet he sent last Saturday, his wife is messing with free agent cornerback Lito Sheppard, who is also Gaffney’s cousin. Below is a censored version...

The Raiders have been stung by the injury bug of late. The latest injury has rookie starter Demarcus Van **** on the shelf. He will be replaced as starting right corner back by Lito Sheppard of whom the Raiders just signed as a free agent just nine days ago.
Lito becomes the fourth starter at the right corner spot for the Raiders. The season began with Chris Johnson as the starter...
The Oakland Raiders returned from their bye week on Monday by signing former Pro Bowl cornerback Lito Sheppard and are planning a workout for former Pro Bowl receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh.
Houshmandzadeh played in Cincinnati with new Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer and was coached by current Raiders head coach Hue Jackson, but has been out of the league so far this season.

The Raiders showed up for practice today with a new #21 in the fold. That player turned out to be former Eagle Pro Bowl corner Lito Sheppard.
The Raiders worked out Sheppard a few weeks ago as the team was a bit thin in the secondary. They had signed cornerback Ron Parker but he became the sacrifice when the team was forced to sign kicker Dave Rayner to replace the injured Sebastian...
