JETS PICKING UP WHERE THEY LEFT OFF IN 2008
Posted by Mike Florio: Friday, February 27, 2009 9:32 PM
The New York Jets tried to buy a playoff team in 2008. They failed.

And coach Eric Mangini paid for it with his job.

This year, the Jets are at it again. On the same day that they signed linebacker Bart Scott and re-signed right guard Brandon Moore, the Jets are completing a trade for Eagles cornerback Lito Sheppard.

According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, the Jets will surrender a fifth-round pick in 2009 and a conditional draft pick in 2010, which can range from a second-round pick to a fifth-round pick.

The specific 2010 selection that the Jets ultimately send to Philly won't matter to G.M. Mike Tannenbaum if the Jets again miss the playoffs. Because Tannenbaum likely won't be presiding over the team's draft next year if the coming season ends without a playoff game.

And until they get a quarterback who can throw the ball in the Meadowlands winds, any other moves that they make simply won't matter.

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

Great deal for the Jets. Got him real cheap, depending on what that conditional pick is.

Sheppard hasn't been as good the last season or two. He's weak in man coverage, and limits what plays you can run when he's on the field. Good deal for a 5th rounder though.

I don't think it was such a great deal for the Jets. Seems like they gave up too much for Sheppard IMO.

Care to explain why?

They gave up a 5th round pick for a starting CB. If he stinks it up then they probably get another 5th round next year. So how again are they giving up too much for Sheppard?

I concur. A fifth? Wow...That's ridiculous value for a starting CB, and a good one at that.
