jets4life Icon : (30 July 2015 - 07:54 PM) Mike Freeman of the B/R has spoken to three NFL sources who all said they think Jets DE Sheldon Richardson Will Never Play Another Down In The Nfl following this arrest.

Freeman’s sources all pointed to the 12-year child and the loaded handgun in the car as two major concerns regarding the incident.
We’ll have more details regarding Richardson as the news is available.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (30 July 2015 - 08:44 PM) do we need to get rid of sheldon?

azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:19 PM) My guess would be by the time he is done with all his suspensions he will not be under contract anymore.
azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:20 PM) The child and gun will do him in.
azjetfan Icon : (30 July 2015 - 09:20 PM) Was he charged with child endangerment?

Chaos Icon : (31 July 2015 - 07:29 AM) he isn't going anywhere. wife beaters get second chances and he won't?
Chaos Icon : (31 July 2015 - 07:29 AM) i'm sure he's going to be suspended for more than 4 games though
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 July 2015 - 10:16 AM) Richardson is a moron
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (31 July 2015 - 10:16 AM) Good thing we drafted Williams

ROBJETS Icon : (01 August 2015 - 09:45 AM) put in full screen and turn up the volume.. One of the best music videos Ive ever seen. You might want the old lady seeing it though and definitely not the kids. No nudity but Butt galore!!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (01 August 2015 - 09:45 AM) https://www.facebook...?type=2&theater
ROBJETS Icon : (01 August 2015 - 09:46 AM) meant might not want your woman seeing it
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 August 2015 - 03:16 PM) Now Wilkerson might be hurt...... f***
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 10:20 PM) I'm almost regretting cutting the cord. Since canceling my Direct TV I have been pretty happy with Netflix sling TV and a $30 antenna. Now that football season is around the corner I am itching. It's just so hard to spend $100plus a month to watch a 3 hour game.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 10:21 PM) I'll try streaming when it's not on my locals which I assume will be quite a bit.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:49 PM) I got the ticket last year after not having it for years and I'm never going back to life without it again
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 01:50 PM) Even if the jets aren't on I can watch any team I want
santana Icon : (Today, 01:52 PM) yeah the ticket is nice
SecondHandJets Icon : (Today, 03:06 PM) Hey Santana... how about them Mets?

Williams family OK's Moreno's request

ESPN.com
Archive No. 27 is back in circulation in Denver.

The number was put on hiatus as a tribute to slain cornerback Darrent Williams. The popular Williams, who was 24 at the time of his death, was shot and killed in downtown Denver on Jan. 1, 2007, hours after the team's season ended.

After not being used the past two seasons, the number will be worn by Denver rookie running back Knowshon Moreno.



<h4 class="io-title stathead">AFC West blog</h4> ESPN.com's Bill Williamson writes about all things AFC West in his division blog.

Blog network: NFL Nation

The Broncos picked Moreno, out of Georgia, with the 12th choice in last weekend's draft. He is expected to be the starting running back for an offense that may become more run-oriented in the wake of the Jay Cutler trade to Chicago.

Moreno, who wore No. 24 in college (currently worn by All-Pro cornerback Champ Bailey in Denver), asked the Broncos to wear No. 27. The Broncos then called Williams' mother, Rosalind Williams, to ask permission to use the number.

The Williams family called the Broncos back and gave its blessing for Moreno to wear the number -- on one condition.

The family plans to ask Moreno to donate a few hours of his time each month to the Darrent Williams Teen Center, which was opened in a low-income part of Denver last May to honor Williams' memory. Moreno wore the number at the team's minicamp practice Friday.

Moreno conveyed to the Williams family Saturday that he plans to talk to Rosalind Williams about working at the team center and promised he will honor the number.

"We knew that number wasn't going to be on the shelf forever," said Troy Asmus, the Williams family's spokesman. "We would like Knowshon to be part of the community center to help with the growth and maturation of these kids."

They had to call Knowshown? Why wouldn't he call them himself before asking and see if it was ok.

I don't know. Darrent Williams was so loved by the Broncos, I'm kinda disappointed that he didn't have his number permanently retired. He didn't give his life for his country like Pat Tillman did but he was robbed of life before he could even begin to reach his ceiling. Personally, as superstitious as athletes are with their numbers, I wouldn't want the karma associated with that number to hang over me anyway.

It says the Broncos called the Williams family. It seems like Knowshon only asked about the number.
