    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.
