Jets trade Sheldon Richardson to Seahawks for WR Jermaine Kearse

Fantasy Football Breaking News

Landing Richardson solidifies the interior of Seattle's defensive line and quells some of the concerns raised by the uncertainty surrounding rookie second-round draft pick Malik McDowell, who was injured in a July ATV accident.

For Kearse, it marks the end of an era, as the Lakewood native will continue his playing career somewhere else than the Pacific Northwest.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Seahawks will trade Kearse, a second-round pick and a seventh-round pick in exchange for defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson and a seventh-round pick from the New York Jets.

A trade candidate for more than a year, Richardson will leave the Jets after four tumultuous, yet productive, seasons and join the Seahawks. The two teams will also swap 7th-round picks.

Kearse gives the Jets a veteran receiver, something they desperately needed.

Richardson would presumably play inside in the Seahawks' 4-3 scheme, joining Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril on a stacked Seahawks front that also houses off-the-bench pass rusher Frank Clark. He totaled 153 receptions for 2,110 yards and 11 touchdowns with Seattle. Even with a ton of opportunity in New York, Kearse is unlikely to accumulate any significant fantasy value on the Jets. Sep. The wideout agreed to a three-year, $13.5 million deal prior to the 2016 season.

The officer's family has not been formally notified, but his death is the 15th fatality in Texas blamed on Hurricane Harvey . His wife had asked him not to go into work that day, but Perez responded with, "We've got work to do", Acevedo said .

Last year, Richardson finished with just 1.5 sacks and 62 tackles in 15 games.

But he was suspended twice for off the field incidents.

Well, based on a projected $178 million salary cap for 2018, the Jets could have $83.617 million in cap space entering next offseason, if they carry over all of their current cap space.

Kearse was a polarizing figure among fans but one of the most consistent wide receivers during Pete Carroll's tenure in Seattle.

The 26-year-old Richardson was the 12 overall pick in 2013 out of Missouri and has started four years for the Jets, named the defensive rookie of the year in 2013 and to the Pro Bowl in 2014.
