The Lito Suspense Builds

If the Birds get Jammal Brown in a Lito trade, they can go in a direction other than OT when they pick 19th.

The Lito Suspense Builds

     I think I like this rumor about Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jammal Brown being part of the Saints' offer for Lito Sheppard. It's almost too good to be true, unless there's some problem with Brown. If you really wanted an elite wideout for Lito, here's the deal: If you've been reading any of the stories written in the past month NOBODY IS OFFERING AN ELITE RECEIVER. So you get Tra Thomas's successor, and you can draft, say, Arkansas running back Felix Jones at 19. Or wideout Devin Thomas. We're at Pick 14 as I type and those guys are still on the board.

     I would sure like to hear the Lito trade announcement, though. No news is bad news.
