Jets Attempt To Trade Sheldon Richardson During Offseason

Will the Jets find a taker for Sheldon Richardson? (Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports)

The New York Jets have a ton of depth along their defensive line. With one year remaining on his contract, New York will attempt to deal Sheldon Richardson this offseason. Rich Cimini of ESPN had the following.

“The spotlight will be on Richardson for the next few weeks, as the Jets almost certainly will try to trade him. They can deal him now and get something in return or lose him next year for nothing (unless you count a compensatory pick in 2019). The Jets will ask for a first-round pick for Richardson, but they will have to settle for less, perhaps a third-rounder. He’s a talented player, but he spent last season acting as if he wants out.”

The Jets will start Leonard Williams and Muhammad Wilkerson at defensive end in their 3-4 defense with Steve McClendon as the nose tackle. Richardson is a natural fit as a 3-4 defensive end and probably works best as a 3 technique. Teams with extra picks could entertain dealing for Richardson. Given the current cap problems the Jets have, I doubt he will get a long-term deal from New York.
