Vikings' Sheldon Richardson: Half sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson recorded three tackles (one solo) and 0.5 sacks across 48 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.

The Vikings set a franchise record with 10 sacks on the day. Richardson now has one sack on the season, which ties season totals from each of the past two seasons. The big run stuffer will now get a chance to rest up as the Vikings enter their bye week.

Vikings' Sheldon Richardson: Distruptive force in Vikings debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson had six total tackles, 0.5 sacks and three QB hits in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Richardson had an impressive debut with the Vikings as he provided a strong interior pass rush that included five QB hurries (according to Pro Football Focus). Opposing offensive lines are going to have a hard time combating Richardson with a need to also account for Minnesota's strong perimeter pass rushers.

Vikings' Sheldon Richardson: Signing one-year pact with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson is signing a one-year contract with the Vikings, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Selected 13th overall in the 2013 draft, Richardson averaged 4.2 tackles and 0.3 sacks per game in four seasons with the Jets, primarily operating as a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. He dropped off to 44 tackles (2.9 per game) and one sack in 15 games last season with Seattle in a 4-3 defense, but the stats undersell his level of disruptiveness. Richardson will be part of another 4-3 defense in Minnesota, where the presence of edge rushers Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffen (undisclosed) should free up one-on-one pass-rushing matchups inside. The 27-year-old interior rusher could cash in with a massive multi-year deal next offseason if he enjoys a big year with the star-studded Vikings.

Sheldon Richardson: Meeting with Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson will visit the Vikings on Thursday, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Richardson's stint with the Seahawks appears as if it'll end after one season, which included 44 tackles and a career-low one sack. The deadline to hand out a franchise or transition tag came and went without the team tabbing any of their players, but negotiations apparently have continued between the two parties. According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Richardson is asking for $15 million per season, but Seattle's counter offer was $11 million per year. Said talks may have been the impetus for Thursday's meeting with the Vikings, who employ a 4-3 defense and have an opening at defensive tackle next to Linval Joseph.

Seahawks' Sheldon Richardson: Unlikely to receive franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson is unlikely to receive the Seahawks' franchise tag, Marc Sessler of NFL.com reports.

Richardson was traded to Seattle just before Week 1, registering 44 tackles (27 solo), a sack, a forced fumble and an interception in 15 games. The Seahawks and Richardson both seem hopeful a long-term agreement will come to fruition in the near future, instead of opting for the roughly $14 million franchise tag.
