Jets Trade For CB Lito Sheppard

The Jets continued a busy day by trading for Philadelphia Eagles CB Lito Sheppard.  According to Adam Schefter of

New York and Philadelphia are completing a trade that will send cornerback Lito Sheppard to the Jets while the Eagles will receive a 2009 fifth-round pick and a 2010 conditional draft pick.

The pick could be as high as a second-round choice in 2010 and as a low as a fourth. But the eagles will get two picks and the Jets get Sheppard, who will be in New York Saturday for a physical.

Lito, who will turn 28 on April 8th, has played for 8 seasons.  He has 18 career interceptions.  It is expected that he will start opposite Pro Bowl CB Darrelle Revis.
