Raiders sign two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Lito Sheppard

The Raiders just announced that they’ve signed former Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings cornerback Lito Sheppard to a free-agent contract.
Here’s the short story we’ve just posted online. Jerry will update this with more details and reaction from Napa.

NAPA — The Raiders announced the free-agent signing of two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Lito Sheppard Friday morning.
Sheppard, a 30-year-old former first-round pick of Philadelphia, is expected to be at Raiders practice in Napa Friday. He spent the 2010 season with the Minnesota Vikings and was an unrestricted free agent.
Sheppard should provide some stability to the Raiders’ cornerback corps. Projected starter Chris Johnson recently underwent an undisclosed surgery but the Raiders say he should be ready for the opener at Denver. Rookie DeMarcus Van Dyke has missed the last two practices with an undisclosed injury.

    Corkran says the extra roster spot is going to Terrelle Pryor…I thought he didn’t count against it until after week 5?

  • raidertbone

    I was high on Pelc; thought he was really gonna be a sleeper. Apparently, not good enough to crack the roster. Oh well, I would’ve never invested a first-round pick and millions of dollars for his services.

    When I lived in Colorado, I had to put up with seeing Elway sell Chevy’s on TV every other commercial. That overbite made me want to punch my set.

    PA,

    he does while he’s eligible to take part in team activities. Weeks 1-5 (when the final 53 is decided) he won’t count until WK6

    ********

    On his chat, he said that the 3 QB’s are safe and that they could carry 4 when Pryor comes on in week 6. I think he doesn’t count so it’s like we are really carrying 54.

    I am quite positive you are not the only one. I still love to see him go on TV and whine and complain about “The Play” in the Cal/Stanford ’82 game. “No way that play should’ve ever counted!” Shut up, crybaby!!!

    Brian the Genital, you really expect anyone to believe a slender, feminine guy like yourself is tutoring a D1 point guard?

    Anyway, we’re all enjoying the hilarious details of this super crazy party you had with some stiff from Missouri.

    LMAO @ Denver fans talking up how they are going to get revenge in week 1.

    Raiders aint having that. It doesn’t have to be a 59-14 score, but we got to win by at least 2 scores and send a message.

  • hwnrdr

    That play….why shouldn’t it count? Wasn’t that the band play? Not the teams fault!

  • raidertay

    There is a possibility that CJ37 may not be back wk 1. You never know when it comes to injuries.

    Nerds, I’m working on a few alterations to the PARTYBRO 8500 Mai Tai Maker for my massive Reggae Party / UFC Fight Cruise tomorrow.

    When the Simply Red cover band starts jamming, it’s going to automatically spray fresh Mai Tai all over the crowd Javon Walker style. This is guaranteed to get the babes lubed up before I make my “entrance”, if you know what I mean.

    Then hopefully my shrimp cocktail servant KrappyKell will be excited enough to do the Charleston right across the dance floor and into the Pacific Ocean.

    That’s when I’ll start the Van Halen lazer light show.

    LA to the Bay, the Broncos are the only team I love to death and if they went 0-16, I’d feel pity. I used to live in CO during the Elway years. It only inspired my love. I don’t much care about the Chefs or chargers…they are a lot of empty talks and no rings.

    +++++++

    i am in San diego…I LOVE the chargers with an unadultered passion…I hope they go 16-0 every year…
