  • Richardson reported for the second day of voluntary offseason workouts, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports. The subject of frequent trade rumors the past two offseasons, Richardson is set to play out the final year of his rookie contract at the fifth-year option salary of approximately $8 million. With Muhammad Wilkerson already carrying a huge contract and Leonard Williams still on his rookie deal, the Jets aren't expected to work out an extension to retain Richardson beyond 2017. A trade might seem to make sense for the rebuilding franchise, but Richardson's salary and career trajectory would probably prevent the Jets from fetching anything more than a middle-round selection -- which is what the team will get as compensation if he leaves as an unrestricted free agent next offseason. He thus figures to stick around next to Williams and Wilkerson for one more year, giving the Jets a formidable defensive line amidst an otherwise barren roster. Richardson did have 62 tackles, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 15 games last season, partially making up for his career-low total of 1.5 sacks. His participation at the voluntary offseason program suggests he's fine with staying in New York for another season before hitting the open market next year.

  • Jets' Sheldon Richardson: Eight tackles in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Richardson had eight tackles, including a sack, during Sunday's win over the Ravens. After picking up 13 sacks in 27 games over the last two years, Richardson has really struggled to get the quarterback this season, as he now has just 1.5 sacks through six games (he was suspended for the season-opener). Given his lack of sacks, and his fairly pedestrian tackle totals, he hasn't been a strong fantasy IDP option.

  • Jets' Sheldon Richardson: Returns from suspension
    By RotoWire Staff

    Richardson is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Bills after missing Week 1 because of a suspension, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Richardson missed the team's opener due to a one-week suspension for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. He'll be back at practice Monday and should return to the starting lineup at defensive end for the Jets' Week 2 matchup with the Bills. Richardson started 11 games during his 2015 campaign following a four-game suspension to start the year and finished with 35 tackles and five sacks.

  • Richardson (suspension) returned to practice Tuesday after a brief excused absence, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. Richardson was excused from practice for personal reasons over the weekend by coach Todd Bowles, but was able to return Tuesday. The Jets will be without Richardson for Week 1 due to a suspension, but they should have their starting defensive end throughout the remainder of training camp.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Richardson (suspension) has been excused from practice and is expected to miss a couple of days for personal reasons, the New York Daily News reports.
