NFL Networks Adam Schefter reports that since the Philadelphia Eagles signed Asante Samuel they have been flooded with calls from other teams about 26 year old, 2 time Probowl CB Lito Sheppard. I have believed all along that he is a key piece in the Philadelphia Eagles trying to aquire Larry Fitzgerald from the Cardinals who moved CB Antrelle Rolle to safety this week. New England and their #7 pick have been reported as a potential suitor. Holding the #7 pick makes New England a favorite. It is well known that Bill Bellichick does not like to put young players on the field. Drafting CBs Michael Jenkins, Leodis McKelvin or LB/DE Vernon Gholston is less likley for New England than trading for Lito Sheppard.
