    Lito Sheppard traded to the Jets

    http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/02/27/eagl...ppard-to-jets/

    Sheppard traded to the Jets for a '09 5th and '10 conditional pick.

    Good deal for both teams. Jets making another strong push this year.

    Should've traded him to the Saints for their 2nd last year, so they could've gotten Forte. Oh well, as long as he's gone I'm happy.

    I'm liking the details of the deal more now. If Lito wants to see that money, he's going to need to earn it. If he plays back to pro bowl form, he'll probably get the extension and the 2nd rounder will be well worth it. If he doesn't well, a fifth rounder on a flier for Lito Sheppard is a good deal too. :)

    Jets | Sheppard receives contract extension
    Sun, 01 Mar 2009 10:56:22 -0800
    Rich Cimini, of the New York Daily News, reports the New York Jets have given CB Lito Sheppard a four-year contract extension worth $27.2 million that will begin in 2010. However, the deal will only kick in if the Jets decide to pay a $10 million option bonus in March 2010. If Sheppard misses considerable time during the season, they would only have to trade a fifth-round draft choice to the Philadelphia Eagles. The conditional 2010 draft choice will be a second-round draft choice if Sheppard plays 85 percent of the season and receives the four-year extension.

    Yeah, certainly a good trade for both. Not really robbery on either side.

    How does Lance Moore make sense? Is he a #1? No. So no, he makes no sense. The Eagles already have a cluster**** of non-#1 receivers. Why add another one?

    5th and a conditional for a #4 corner? Robbery.

    Nice trade for us.

    As far as not thinking we'll succeed with Clemens...eh...rarely do non-elite QB prospects ever get looked at as the QB of the future anyway...and even then no QB gets the benefit of the doubt on leading a team anywhere until he's done it.

    Basically, we could win with Clemens. It's just also highly possible we can't.

    They could still trade for Derek Anderson...That would be giving up alot of picks on two guys, but honestly Anderson is a better option then someone like Freeman or anyone they have so if your going to make a run why not.

    It's about time they got rid of Lito.

    Jets need a receiver to compliment Cotchery and a QB and they will look solid going into next year.
