  • Lito to da Bucs?

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8...sits-with-Bucs

    FOXSports.com has learned that Sheppard was in Tampa on Wednesday to visit with the Buccaneers, who have emerged as the frontrunner for the two-time Pro Bowler, and is likely to be traded by Saturday.

    It appears it will take a second-round pick plus and additional pick or player to get the deal done.

    Two or three other teams are interested in the cornerback, who has played with the Eagles since entering the league in 2002.

    He's a terrible fit for their defense.

      Im going to guess that'll it will be a pick + either Jovan Haye or Greg White. White has just come out and said he'd like to be traded if he can't get a new contract, and Haye was shopped to the Chiefs as part of a potential Jared Allen deal.

        We could use a good backup DT. Lito for a 2nd and Haye would be a nice trade.

          I wouldn't mind that trade at all. Perhaps we can use our picks to move up in the second, or maybe back into the late first, depending on what we get for Lito, and what other teams arewilling to trade for.

            I don't get why the eagles want to trade Lito?

                They don't. But he wants to be traded because Samuel got paid big $ and he knows the Birds won't pay him the same type of cash.

                  ehhh we could get more then a late 2nd I think, should be a solid player also in return hopefully.

                    I saw on yahoo sports that Michael Clayton may be included. Maybe he can bounce back to his rookie form but I doubt it wishful thinking.

                      I'm not thrilled with the aspects of this deal. I would rather keep Lito and not get the extra #2. Haye is okay in a rotation, and I like Clayton okay, but I don't know if that kind of package would excite me enough to part with Lito right now.

                        I do not understand why the Bucs want to trade Haye so badly, or why they want Lito, he would not fit in the cover 2 at all.

                          I'm crossing my fingers right now...please stop Bruce Allen.

                            I would LOVE this deal...That's one team in front of Dallas who doesn't need to take Mike Jenkins, and Tamps is who I thought would get him anyway...Go Tampa.

                              Really a side note, but someone mentioned Greg White earlier, and I don't see it. The Eagles have a 4 deep at end already.

                              Overall, I don't see the particular necessity for either side to make this deal. I think Lito could fit (heck, if Phillip Buchanon could fit, physically Lito could fit. That said, I think they can wait to grab a CB, as they have traditionally done, if they miss on a CB at 20 they want (namely Mike Jenkins). Teams are in love with Chevis Jackson and reaching on him late 2nd might not be the worst idea out there, while still giving them flexibility.

                              Now that said, if the trade was simply Lito for the 2nd, then I guess the Bucs should pull the trigger, as they have the cap room and Lito will likely be more help than any rookie. Lito and Mike Clayton - pull the trigger. Clayton's stalled. But Lito and someone like Jovan Haye? I'm not sure you pull the trigger. Their DT rotation isn't exactly great. Put it this way - they could use an impact DT IMO anyways, unless Greg Peterson develops. And if they lack a 2nd, they'd have to wait for scraps in the 3rd or later, or reach terribly on someone in the first.

                              We'll have to wait and see, although Lito claimed he was simply visiting friends.
