Rumors Abound About Eagles-Cardinals Making a Deal

On the same day that the Philadelphia Eagle’s signed CB Asante Samuel, speculation has erupted that the Eagles could be sending their first round pick in this year’s draft and CB Lito Sheppard to the Arizona Cardinals for WR Larry Fitzgerald. If the rumor has legs, than both side could be in the making for vast improvement. The Cardinals recently moved CB Antrelle Rolle to S which left a hole and role that Shepherd could fill-in and better. For the Eagles, this could finally be Donovan McNabb’s big break as he has the arm and accuracy to take a team to a Super Bowl like he did in the past. Remember the Donovan-T.O. connection? If this rumor is true, then the Eagles could be right back on track to make another Super Bowl.

There has been solid speculation that Fitzgerald could be on his way out of Arizona due to his enormous contract and cap hits he’d cause in 2008 and 2009, but Cardinals GM Rod Graves has shut down those rumors while holding that Fitzgerald will be a Cardinal in 2008. For Shepherd, he was unhappy with the Eagles while struggling in 2007. There has been rumors circulating with Shepherd’s name on them for sometime now, with one including Chad Johnson from the Bengals.

    Hi, I am an Eagles fan, can you guys some how make this magically happen. Because I think it is all BS but man I wish it wasn’t. I like your team though, get a solid QB (hopefully Leinhart wakes up) and you guys are playoff bound.

    I do think that the eagles will make a move to trade lito if sheldon brown is not moved to safety (if the eagles ink a FA or believe they can draft one). The eagles would agree to this trade if and only if the cardinals took on the responsibility of restructuring Fitzgerald’s contract to make it friendly to the eagles cap room (between $9M and $11M).
