Seahawks' Sheldon Richardson: Traded to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets traded Richardson and a 2018 seventh-round pick to the Seahawks in exchange for WR Jermaine Kearse, a 2018 second-round pick and a 2018 seventh-round pick, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Seattle already had one of the best defenses in the league without Richardson. With him, they should be even better. However, the Seahawks took a gamble in trading for him, as Richardson is entering the last year of his rookie deal.

Jets' Sheldon Richardson: Shows up for voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
