NFL Notes: Sheldon Richardson, Quarterbacks, Cardinals, Eagles

Sheldon Richardson

  • Rich Cimini writes that the Jets would ideally like to trade DL Sheldon Richardson but it’s going to be tough for them to get fair-market value because of his prior suspensions, salary and poor production last season.
  • In AFC executive tells Cimini “good luck” when asked about the Jets trading Richardson.
  • If the Jets are unable to move him during the draft, it’s likely they keep him for the 2017 season and then look to collect a compensatory pick in 2018.
