Another Rosenhaus video for Lito

Lito Sheppard's concerns about not starting echoes comments made by his agent Drew Rosenhaus in another Internet video.

Another Rosenhaus video for Lito


Agent Drew Rosenhaus, via his commentary for Sprint Sports, posted another video recently describing the plight of his client, Eagles cornerback Lito Sheppard.

"I’m not sure what the eventual outcome will be," Rosenhaus said in the video, which you can watch below. "We have talked to the team about an extension. We have talked to the team about a potential trade. All bets are off. We’re going to have to take it one day at a time. Certainly, it's not a positive situation and my client should be starting."

Rosenhaus and Sheppard seemingly are the only ones who think that anything will happen other than Sheppard having to play this season under his current contract as the third corner.

Countered Sheppard after practice Monday: “I think my role is still undetermined right now. I feel fine, I feel great, I feel healthy, I feel ready to play this season, but as to my role, that has yet to be determined ... Me not starting, that’s the biggest propaganda."

Sheppard also had some advice for the reporters surrounding him in the locker room.

"That’s a good question, you should ask that right now,’’ Sheppard said, when reporters asked him why he felt he wasn’t starting. “Given the reasons supposedly — my injuries, me not being able to stay on the field — with that not being an issue [currently], what is the issue? That’s a good question for y’all to bring up.’’

Here is more on the Sheppard situation from today's Daily News.


The Eagles have made an effort to improve their special teams with the drafting of return men DeSean Jackson and Quintin Demps. Mark Kram takes a look at the Birds' new returners and why the Birds have struggled in this area.

And, the Eagles are not the only team in the NFC East to upgrade their return game. Rick Gossellin in the Dallas Morning News looks at the moves made by the other teams in the division to help on special teams.

In other news, the Rams, who open the season next Sunday at the Linc, have picked up cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. That name might sound familiar from an NFC Championship Game of the past when Manning had three interceptions of Donovan McNabb. That fact was not lost on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Plus, here is a report on the Rams' preseason. One thing that might be interesting is the health of the wide receivers behind Torry Holt. The status of Nos. 2 and 3 wideouts Dante Hall (ankle) and Drew Bennett (groin) is uncertain for Philly. Both saw limited action when the team practiced Monday.
