Raiders Add Cornerback Lito Sheppard

The Oakland Raiders have signed veteran cornerback Lito Sheppard according to a tweet from the team’s official account. The 30-year-old former Viking will wear number 21 for the silver and black.

Sheppord previously played for the Eagles from 2002-2008 before one year stints with the New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings. Until now he had not signed with a team for the 2011 season.

The former first round pick’s best season came in 2006 for the Eagles when he intercepted six passes and returned one for a touchdown. He did not record an interception in all of 2010, and only collected one in 2009.
