Free agent CB Lito Sheppard talking to NFC North squads

In the midst of walking my dogs, brewing coffee, and eating my Wheaties I noticed a quick blurb on the NFL Network.

Lito Sheppard is visiting the Lions soon, but they also said the Vikings and the Bears could have interest in his services.

At age 29, it is unclear what type of market Sheppard is finding himself in.  He is not the typical cornerback the Vikings like to peruse, given that he has a tendency to make a splashy play and then get burned for long yardage or a score.

The Vikings interest probably does not run too deep, and I suspect another team will easily outbid them for Sheppard’s services.
