Richardson's explanation isn't likely to win anyone over.
Richardson went on Twitter and told fans he missed the workouts because, "I have a life outside of football."
"I chose to enjoy my family a little longer," he continued. "So to (you) fans that know everything, please worry 'bout yourself."
Richardson pointed out in another tweet that he "jus' wasn't at practice," but that he was still "putting in work tho'"
Wednesday marked the second day of the Jets' 10-day voluntary workout program. Marshall was present on the first day but Richardson was not.
Jets coach Todd Bowles said Marshall was absent on Wednesday because he "had something to take care of, but "it wasn't conveyed" to him why Richardson was not there.
Richardson was the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2013 and is projected to play a key role on the Jets' defense.
Wilkerson's absence is no surprise, as the defensive lineman is seeking a new contract from the team and has stated he won't take part in voluntary team activities. Richardson and Marshall are not involved in contract disputes.
Richardson left the game late in the second quarter and the Jets listed him as out for the remainder of the game.
