Sheldon Richardson will wear a different uniform this season. The New York Jets traded the defensive tackle to the Seattle Seahawks on Friday. On the morning after the trade, Richardson took to social media to thank his old team.
“I will like to thank the Jets organization for everything you’ve done for me,” Richardson posted on Instagram. “It was my pleasure to give it my all for gang green but God has another plan for me, so from my family to yours thank you again and god bless!!!”
Richardson is probably ecstatic about his new situation. He went from one of the worst teams in the NFL to one of the best.
Seattle bolstered their defensive line in a big way with the addition of Richardson. The Seahawks are on the shortlist of Super Bowl contenders. This trade might just make them the class of the NFC.
