Jets | Sheldon Richardson still likely to be traded?

Fri, 07 Apr 2017 09:19:44 -0700

New York Jets DE Sheldon Richardson is entering the fifth and final year of his rookie contract, but the Jets are still expected to trade him at some point this season, according to Darryl Slater of NJ.com. Trading Richardson would free up $8.069 million in salary cap space for the Jets and remove a player from the roster who has been suspended in each of the past two seasons due to issues with substance abuse, fought with teammates and suffered a drop in production in recent years.

Jets | AJ McCarron a possibility for NY Jets?

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 15:01:23 -0800

The New York Jets would "consider" a trade of DE Sheldon Richardson to the Cincinnati Bengals for QB AJ McCarron, according to ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.

Fantasy Tip: At the moment, this proposed trade is nothing more than a "hot internet rumor", according to Cimini, but one he believes the Jets have considered. Cimini also notes that both players will be free agents at the end of the 2017 season and Cincinnati would need to include a draft pick in order to make it work. If the trade ever comes to fruition, McCarron would be hard-pressed to be anything more than a low-end QB2 for the foreseeable future.
