Jets cornerback Lito Sheppard has wanted a shot at a market deal for several years.
Finally, he’s going to get it.
A league source tells us that agent Drew Rosenhaus is telling teams that Lito Sheppard will be cut by the Jets.
It’s no shock. Sheppard is due to receive a $10 million option bonus on or before the fifth day of the league year.
Said the source, “Sheppard won’t make a total of $10 million over the rest of this career.”
Sheppard was traded to New York last year, after jostling for a new contract following the arrival of Asante Samuel in Philly.
