Sheppard a goner too

According to multiple media outlets, the Jets will release veteran cornerback Lito Sheppard on Friday.

The nine-year veteran was slated to receive a $10 million option bonus, next week. Sheppard, who was acquired via trade last February, struggled through injuries during his only season in New York. The two-time Pro Bowler started nine games, recording 25 tackles and one interception.

Sheppard was notably benched during the team’s final game of the season in Indianapolis in favor of Dwight Lowery, who was picked-on all day by Peyton Manning, in-turn ending the Jets’ playoff run.
