NEW YORK JETS: Jets Get Lito

Just what we needed — a solid CB to go opposite Darrelle Revis. The Jets completed a trade today for Philly CB Lito Sheppard:

“Sources told ESPN.com Friday night that the Eagles are believed to be receiving a middle-round choice in the 2010 draft and conditional 2011 draft choice. The level of the 2011 choice will be determined by a number of factors, including Sheppard’s 2009 playing time.”

While 2008 may not have been his best year it is certainly an upgrade and I’m happy to see him in a Jets uniform.

Nope, not a typo. I’ll just let Daily News writer Rich Cimini tell it:

“A shocker: The Jets, spurned by Steelers free-agent G Chris Kemoeatu earlier in the day, have re-signed RG Brandon Moore, the Daily News has learned.

Moore agreed to a four-year, $16 million contract, including $10 million in guarantees.

This is a smart move by the Jets, who cut Moore yesterday because they didn’t want to pay a $7 million roster bonus. They quickly came to their sense and re-signed their best run blocker, keeping their line in tact.”

P.S. Sheppard visits Jets HQ tomorrow.

Well, after releasing Brandon more, the Jets attempted to sign Steelers guard Chris Kemoeatu. Problem is: he resigned with the Steelers.

Cornerback Cory Ivy visited Jets’ headquarters today in Jersey, possibly considering an offer from them.

And in some interesting late breaking news, the Jets are apparently trying to work out a trade to bring Eagles CB Lito Sheppard to the Jets. While Lito had an off 2008, he’d still be an upgrade over rookie Dwight Lowery.

We’ll see how it all shakes out.

NFL Free agency started this morning at midnight, and the Jets are obviously going to be heavy players. The following is the list of the “cap casualty” cuts the Jets have issued so far:

David Bowens
Brad Kassell
Brandon Moore
Chris Baker
David Barrett

The following are the free agents of note:

Eric Barton
Ahmad Carroll
Jesse Chatman
Laveranues Coles
Jay Feely
Mike Nugent
Bubba Franks
Ty Law
C.J. Mosley
Hank Poteat
Tony Richardson

Some will get resigned, some will be let go, and big names (or small) will replace them — and I’ll be here every step of the way to update everyone on those moves.

What a great pickup. To replace the departed (see upcoming post) David Bowens sand Brad Kassell, the Jets today signed former Ravens Linebacker Bart Scott to a 6-year, $48 million deal. According to the ESPN.com article:

“Scott has played seven seasons with Baltimore amassing 433 tackles and 16 sacks in his career. His best season was in 2006 when he made the Pro Bowl and the All-Pro team. In that season, he had 103 tackles and 9½ sacks.”

This should be great — first of all he knows new Head Coach Rex Ryan — but especially because he will work great in the 3-4 system.

Tiger made the right decision. He was ready to play, he wanted to play, and he did. He was beat by an opponent who played the best golf of his life against the world’s #1 that was a little bit off. Tiger’s back, golf can take a mini-sigh of relief waiting for his probable next appearance on the PGA Tour, at Doral.

People also may have forgotten that this was a new course to everyone this week, and that the extreme undulating greens caught many off guard and were tough to learn. Tiger will next play at Doral and Bay Hill, most likely, where he knows the golf courses like he does his house. That should take one variable out of the equation and play right into Tiger’s hands — scary right?

MLB: Manny Being Manny

It looks like Manny Ramierez, who like that other player named A-Rod tends to make more news off the diamond then on, has rejected the Los Angeles Dodgers newest offer to him of a one year deal with deferred money and an option for 2010. I’m going to make a prediction right now and I truly, honestly believe it:

Manny will start the season on 0 rosters.

His asking price and wants are too high, he’s too selfish, and he’s going to be forced to have to live through not being in baseball before he gets desperate, takes someones offer, and returns to baseball. It’s the only way it’s going to happen. Hopefully Scott Boras and Manny learn their lesson here, because they are two of the most bizarre people in all of baseball right now.
