    Jets' Sheldon Richardson: Pleads guilty in drag-racing case

    Richardson pleaded guilty Tuesday to resisting arrest, speeding and running a red light in an incident that took place in July, ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports. Shortly after it was discovered that he'd be suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season for violating the NFL's policy on substances of abuse, Richardson was arrested for taking part in a high-speed race in St. Louis. He may open the season with a suspension for a second straight year, but he'll likely escape with a ban that lasts fewer than four games. Richardson will be playing for a new contract in 2016, after notching five sacks in 11 appearances during the 2015 season.
