Josh Dubow - AP Sports Writer reported today ...
"The Oakland Raiders have signed cornerback Lito Sheppard ... Sheppard took part in practice [today] after signing the deal with the Raiders.
Sheppard spent time in training camp with the Raiders and played in the final exhibition game before being cut. He had not caught on with any other team and was brought back by the Raiders, who have two cornerbacks banged up in Chris Johnson and Chimdi Chekwa."
Sheppard is a former Pro Bowler but started only two games for Minnesota last season. He started nine games for the New York Jets in 2009 and three for Philadelphia the previous season. He had been a starter for the Eagles before that, intercepting 14 passes from 2004 to 2006.
