Browns not showing interest in Lito Sheppard

Earlier this week the Cleveland Browns lost CB Daven Holly to a likely season ending knee injury. There was some talk that this might lead them to inquire about Lito Sheppard's availability... but Browns' GM Phil Savage put that thought to rest.

He said former Pro Bowler Lito Sheppard, who could be traded by the Eagles, is not a realistic target.

"I'm talking about lower-end trade," Savage said.

Savage was asked about Lito in a separate interview and gave pretty much the same response.

Sign free agent Ty Law, a potential Hall of Famer? Trade for former Pro Bowler Lito Sheppard?

"I would say it's highly unlikely we would stretch our budget to go get a Lito Sheppard," Savage said, not closing the door but adding, "I would say those two are probably out of the mix."

Honestly, even if the Browns were to be interested in Lito they really have nothing worthwhile they'd be willing to offer the Eagles in return. With 2 first round picks already in their pocket for 09, it's unlikely the Eagles would rather have another pick instead of Lito in the coming year. As far as players, the Browns really don't have a glaring surplus at any one position. So it's hard to figure what they might be willing to offer anyway. You'd think the Eagles would be interested in a WR, but there's no way the Browns would part with Braylon Edwards and they just signed Donte Stallworth to a big contract which makes him untradeable for a couple of years(plus the Eagle obviously weren't interested in him anyway).

Long story short, Lito isn't going anywhere this year,
