Jets trade Sheldon Richardson to Seahawks for veteran WR

Jermaine Kearse has been a Seahawk his entire career.

The Daily News has confirmed, via a source, that Gang Green has traded the defensive lineman to the Seattle Seahawks for wide receiver Jermaine Kearse.

The Seahawks could have their best defensive line since winning the Super Bowl in 2013 after trading Friday for Sheldon Richardson of the New York Jets.

Sheldon Richardson's tumultuous tenure with the New York Jets is over.

The teams are also swapping 7th round picks, according to the following tweet from Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Pliskova, Keys through as Kerber exits US Open
Avoiding the word "pressure", Kerber mulled her lost season after the defeat, saying, "I had much less matches [than] past year ". Osaka controlled her emotions and shellacked Kerber, whose rocky 2017 Grand Slam season ended on an unforced forehand error .

Meanwhile, Kearse will help boost a Jets receiving corps that took a serious hit when Quincy Enunwa suffered a season-ending neck injury last month.

Fantasy Impact Since the Jets are thin at wide receiver, Kearse will likely open the year as the team's WR2, behind Robby Anderson, likely sending ArDarius Stewart to the No. 3 spot. Richardson started 14 contests in 2016, registering 72 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Seeming nearly forgotten is a catch that was no less important - a 35-yard touchdown on fourth-and-seven that put Seattle ahead for good against the 49ers in the 2014 NFC title game. Will Kearse have a breakout year in NY? He also has appeared in 12 postseason contests, recording 6 TDs and averaging 15.9 yards on his 31 catches. He has been suspended twice by the league, and he recently angered Todd Bowles with his public criticism of former teammate Brandon Marshall. On July 14 of that year, 12 days after his drug ban was announced, Richardson was arrested for driving 143 miles per hour during an apparent road race in St. Charles County, Missouri. Richardson is making a guaranteed $8.1 million, and the Jets have been trying to trade him since last October because they anticipate losing him as a free agent after this season.

Instead, the Seahawks saw their final offensive play result in an interception at the goal line and a 28-24 loss.

Richardson, 26, had grown unhappy with the Jets and had established himself as one of their top defensive players, recording 62 combined tackles in 2016 and amassing 18 sacks over four seasons with the team.
