Sheldon Richardson on Super Bowl: 'That's what we're chasing'

Sheldon Richardson waves as he leaves the field ejected for fighting in the final minute of play. The Seattle Seahawks played the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday

And he indeed remains an apparition. There's been the obvious discussion of "How on earth is it possible to pay that much for a professional football player?"

Robinson was arguably the best outside wide receiver available as a free agent but, according to Sports Illustrated, the serious ACL injury he suffered previous year and an average 2016 convinced the Jacksonville Jaguars to allow him to explore the market.

According to, Richardson signed a one-year deal with the Vikings. Seattle declined to do that in its window to do so this month, because $14 million was far too expensive for them. He spent his first four seasons with NY, which traded him last summer to the Seahawks for wide receiver Jermaine Kearse and a draft pick. They only reason they paid that price was because McDowell-another dynamic, versatile defensive lineman seven years younger-sustained serious head and other injuries in a mysterious ATV accident in his home start of MI in July. Richardson combined for just two and a half sacks over the past two seasons.

"Nothing new. Same kind of thing".

"Now we have so much TV money that it's completely unnecessary from my vantage point", McCartney said.

Most recently, Tony McDaniel returned to the Seahawks in 2016 at 32 years of age and started 10 games for the team, providing valuable snaps while recording 43 tackles. That was until Wagner's hamstring injury in December.

This is the second contract of Richardson's career after his rookie contract.

In addition to Cousins, Minnesota was also able to land free-agent defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson. "But I know when a player of this caliber gets out there on the market and he's been franchised two years in a row, and it's the quarterback position, you're going to have to do what you have to do".

"Right now, it's all on paper", Richardson said.

But with Richardson reported wanting upwards of $11 million and the Seahawks apparently not wanting to go that high, the odds seemed to be increasing on Friday that he may get away.

The NFC West looks similarly imposing, with Russell Wilson dealt the unenviable task of elevating a disintegrating Seattle Seahawks team to a level where they can hold off the division champion Los Angeles Rams and the resurgent San Francisco 49ers, who have the benefit of perhaps the two brightest offensive minds in the game in Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan and two of the league's best young quarterbacks.

Thursday, he got picked up in a private plane sent by the Vikings.

The 25-year-old said he can "beat guys downfield, take the top off the coverages, challenge people downfield". Yes, Richardson got the red-carpet treatment in Minnesota.

Richardson, acquired by the Seahawks the week before last season began and who became an unrestricted free agent Wednesday, is regarded as one of the top defensive tackles available and figured to have a lot of suitors.

A sub-optimal swap, to be sure.
