The long-rumored Lito Sheppard trade appears to be getting closer.

 

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.

The Bucs currently hold the 20th pick in the first round, which is likely more than they'd give up for Lito. More likely is the #52 overall pick, which is 3 slots after the Eagles in the second round. JScott over the Tampa Bay blog, Buc 'Em doesn't think it will happen.

Glazer speculates that a 2nd alone will likely not be enough, but you'd have to guess that the Eagles wouldn't get any more than a 2nd and 5th which is what the Raiders paid for DeAngelo Hall. Either way, it looks like today is Lito's last day as an Eagle.
