Jets ink CB Ivy, look to trade for CB Sheppard

February 27, 2009

D. Rex is at it again.

Now that former Ravens ILB Bart Scott is in the fold, new Jets coach Rex Ryan has turned his attention to the secondary. They have reached an agreement with free-agent CB Corey Ivy, formerly of the Ravens, and - here's the big one - they're working on a trade for Eagles CB Lito Sheppard, according to league sources.

In fact, Sheppard is due to visit tomorrow with the Jets. The former first-round pick has one year remaining on his contract, with a base salary of $3 million, but he has been looking to be traded ever since the Eagles signed CB Asante Samuel last offseason.

Sheppard would step in as a starter, opposite Pro Bowl CB Darrelle Revis. Ivy will be a nickel back, his role with the Ravens.

Terms of Ivy's deal weren't immediately available. It's unclear what the Jets would be willing to part with for Sheppard.

Meanwhile, here's a breakdown of Scott's contract. The 6-year deal includes about $22 million in guarantees, with $27 million coming in the first three seasons. It's believed the Ravens offered a 6-year package for $45 million.

His agent, Harold Lewis, claims that Scott never wavered in signing with the Jets, and that he never went back to the Ravens to squeeze more money out of them.
