Lito Sheppard to the Jets for Picks
According to a source the Eagles on Saturday are expected to complete a trade which will send corner Lito Sheppard to the New York Jets for a package of draft picks.
Although details of the deal were not available, the Eagles are believed to be receiving a middle-round choice in the 2010 draft and conditional 2011 draft choice. The level of the 2011 choice will be determined by a number of factors including Sheppard’s 2009 playing time.
Lito will most likely step right into the starting lineup at the cornerback spot opposite Darrelle Revis.
