Leonhard Deal (Finally) Done; Notes from Sheppard

Jim Leonhard is a Jet. According to Adam Schefter, the Jets gave him a three-year deal. If I get specifics I'll pass them on.

Meantime, got off the conference call with Lito Sheppard a while ago. He gave a lot of very standard answers to most questions - he's excited, looking forward to being a part of the organization, etc. Almost like interviewing a player under Erici Mangini's regime.

He does genuinely appear to be happy to be out of Philadelphia and start fresh in New York. This is a former Pro Bowler with seven years of experience so I think that his interview ability aside, he will make an immediate impact on the field.
