The Jets released CB Lito Sheppard on Thursday, reports indicate.

The move was expected, as the Jets made it clear they would not be paying the $10 million roster bonus he was due this month.

Sheppard started nine games in 2009, his only season with the Jets. He made 31 tackles and had one interception.

The Jets could look to Oakland to find his replacement. There are reports that the Jets are interested in Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha, who is apparently on the trade block. He would be a major upgrade over Sheppard.
