In other news, apparently the Lions/Bengals trade involving Shaun Rogers has been called off.
...seriously. If it's Julius Peppers...I'd die. Marcus Stroud would be an amazing trade, too. Sadly, I hear he's going to Bills.
What do you guys feel is the most logical trade scenario?
Lito Sheppard possibly since Samuel is taking the LCB spot over.
I pray its Lito Sheppard. He is clearly the odd man out in Philly and when Reid was asked who is the starting LCB at the Samuel press confrence he said Samuel with vindiction. So I hope the Rams aren't sleeping on this and make a majoy play for him.
really it got called off??? so what type of trade do you think the rams could brew up
Lito Sheppard is a physical corner who can make plays. I think his experience can do wonders for our secondary. Add that with a Vernon Gholston pick in the 2nd rd., and I think we could start feeling hopeful for our defense. =]
I think the Rams will offer a 2nd - 3rd rounder for Lito Sheppard. Maybe Byrd? Either we cut him or trade him. Haha.
vernon gholston should be a top 15 pick. so i doubt he will be there in round 2
well, i doubt we'll trade our 2nd overall pick, so unless we do...I still consider him an option draft day.
maybe I'm just a bigger Gholston fan than Chris Long. =/ I dunno.
but I don't think if we go for a Lito Sheppard, it'll cost us a 1st rd., 2nd overall pick...but I do feel a 2nd rd. pick would be reasonable for him.
It better be a second round pick. I'm sorry, but whoever we pick first round will be better than Sheppard
Sheppard isn't a physical guy, he is an injury prone, blanketer kind of corner. I like him, but I would rather make a play at Deangelo hall who Devany has ties to from ATL
I think any trade to make this defense better is a good one.
With cornerback Asante Samuel in the fold, the Eagles are now going to attempt to trade cornerback Lito Sheppard, according to Adam Schefter of NFL Network.
Calls are already coming in for Sheppard, a first-round draft pick in 2002 who is still only 26 years old.
In recent weeks, there were rumors that that Sheppard was on he block, and the team strongly denied it. In hindsight, it's likely that the Eagles didn't want to tip their hand regarding their plans to pursue Samuel.
Sheppard is under contract for four more seasons, with base salaries of $2 million in 2008, $3 million in 2009, $3.7 million in 2010, and $4.25 million in 2011.
so...sheppard is on the block. hopefully the rams are pursuing him in these trade 'rumors'
IDK if we can get deangelo hall, i think we should do it. lito is injury prone and i don't know if he would help us. Tye hill and DeAngelo hall. "The NFL's Fastest Cornerback Tandem" I like it.
Hall would be great. But Sheppard wouldnt be a bad grab either.
like Phat-Money said Tye Hill and Deangelo Hall would be the fastest CB tandem in the NFL. Lito Shepard and Tye Hill would be the most injury prone tandem in the NFL. I would go with the former
YES!! Somebody Finally agree's with ME!! Thank You Beast. :)
