  Seahawks | Seahawks make offer to Sheldon Richardson    Fri Mar 16, 12:31 AM

The Seattle Seahawks have offered free-agent DT Sheldon Richardson (Seahawks) $11 million per year, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, who adds that Richardson wants $15 million annually.

Footballguys view: Richardson wasn't that effective for the Seahawks last year, so their offer doesn't look miserly. Still, players with his size and athleticism are rare and dollars don't go far in free agency, so he might get more- assuming he is willing to wait until Ndamukong Suh picks his new team.

Seattle Seahawks DT Sheldon Richardson will be an unrestricted free agent after this season, and there is mutual interest between the New York Jets and Richardson about a potential reunion, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: If the Jets get a second-round pick and Jermaine Kearse for Richardson and still have him on the roster next year, that is a master stroke. Richardson hasn't had nearly the impact for Seattle that we expected when they acquired him.

  Seahawks | Sheldon Richardson dealt to Seattle    Fri Sep 1, 03:23 PM

The Seattle Seahawks acquired New York Jets DL Sheldon Richardson in exchange for WR Jermaine Kearse and draft considerations on Friday, Sept. 1, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Kearse becomes a starter on the receiver-depleted Jets and Richardson becomes part of the scariest pass rush in the league when he lines with Cliff Avril, Frank Clark, and Michael Bennett on passing down. The Seattle defense just got more potent for fantasy and Jets continued their slide into tank mode.

  Jets | Sheldon Richardson still on the block    Thu Jul 20, 11:11 AM

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson is still available for trade, but it's unlikely the team cuts him.

Footballguys view: They won't cough him up for free and will try to move him right up until the trade deadline. Right now, considering his attitude and lack of impact in 2016. The Jets may not find a partner until he proves both issues are in the past. Of course, the Jets are unlikely to extend his contract in any event so teams might wait for the offseason.

  Cowboys | Dallas not looking at Sheldon Richardson    Sun Jun 4, 05:19 PM

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson is not a trade target for the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys were one of two teams (Washington was the other) that the Jets had discussions with about Richardson. The Jets want to trade him away as 2017 is Richardson's final year of his contract, but teams don't want to pay him the fully guaranteed $8.1 million he's due in 2017. Team insiders believe there's a 50/50 chance Richardson gets dealt before the start of the regular season.

  Jets | Sheldon Richardson shopped to three teams    Fri May 26, 06:41 PM

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson was been shopped to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts this offseason, but the Jets did not find any takers.

Footballguys view: The Jets have been shopping him around for some time. There's a 50/50 chance he'll be dealt before the start of the regular season, but any team interested is going to have to pay his 2017 salary of almost $8.1 million. Richardson is in the final year of his contract and could be in for a big payday if he impresses this year. He had 8.0 sacks in 2014, but Richardson has only compiled 6.5 sacks over the last two years combined.

  Jets | Sheldon Richardson still on the market    Sat Apr 29, 08:20 PM

The New York Jets will still try to trade DE Sheldon Richardson even though they were not able to make a deal during the 2017 NFL Draft, according to sources. The Jets talked with the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins over the last few days, but Richardson's fully guaranteed $8.1 million salary for 2017 was a sticking point for teams.

Footballguys view: Richardson under Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli would be fun to watch. The Jets are clearly in rebuilding mode, so Richardson is not part of that plan. He'll be traded for a mid-round pick at best because of his contract.

  Jets | Sheldon Richardson not a big trade target    Sun Apr 16, 04:17 PM

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson does not appear to be receiving a lot of interest in the trade market this offseason.

  Jets | Acquiring Sheldon Richardson could be cheap    Fri Apr 14, 12:19 PM

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson may not be able to fetch more than a fourth-round pick on the trade market given his recent off-field history and on-field production, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello.

Footballguys view: If that was the case, then why aren't teams interested? The Jets have been wanting to deal Richardson for a while now, but to no avail so far. As the draft nears, we'll see if they can finally unload the talented defensive end.

  Jets | Sheldon Richardson still likely to be traded?    Fri Apr 7, 12:19 PM

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson is entering the fifth and final year of his rookie contract, but the Jets are still expected to trade him at some point this season, according to Darryl Slater of NJ.com.

Footballguys view: Trading Richardson would free up $8.069 million in salary cap space for the Jets and remove a player from the roster who has been suspended in each of the past two seasons due to issues with substance abuse, fought with teammates and suffered a drop in production in recent years.

  Jets | Sheldon Richardson's trade value going down?    Wed Apr 5, 12:17 PM

The New York Jets may have to lower the asking price on DT Sheldon Richardson in the wake of the Baltimore Ravens trading DT Timmy Jernigan to the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, April 4, in order to move up 21 spots in the third round, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: The market has already been cool for Richardson, and this Jernigan deal won't help it get hot. The Jets have been wanting to move Richardson for some time now, but they've yet to unload the talented defensive tackle. Perhaps if they have a more realistic view of his trade value, they'd be able to come together on some sort of deal.
