Posted 1 Aug 2015Seems like a knee jerk reaction here. What we know- Sheldon was speeding with a 12 year old in the car and tried to hide from the cops(not a high speed car chase). There was a gun, yes, obvious it was Legal otherwise he would be locked up RIGHT NOW. The weed smell...ok that means nothing other than he has a history of smoking. So basically we are saying he should be suspended an entire season (if not more) for speeding, turning off his lights, and praying the cops don't see him. Yes he is an idiot no doubt but there is no sense in making predictions about his future when the details haven't even been released. Send Sheldon to Rehab now for a month (people will forgive), f*** training camp, and see you week 5 Sheldon.
No sense in trading him now as he has zero trade value. Let him play some games this year, he will perform at a high level and send him on his way after the season for a 3rd round pick.
His status for this year is obviously up in the air as Coach Bowles has said he has no idea if Richardson will play this year. Let's hope he doesn't get a full year's suspension - the four games he'll miss come under the league's drug policy anyway and I assume that personal conduct discipline is separate from that? Obviously Sheldon's ban for using weed won't help him in this situation.
I don't see why we should be thinking of the team cutting their losses with Richardson after this season though. Even with Williams on board, given Richardson's level of play, he isn't somebody we should think about just moving on. Before his offseason trouble, he was developing into one of the most disruptive defensive linemen in the league. And if we can afford to keep him, Williams, Wilkerson and Harrison without impacting our ability to fill other needs then that should be done. Assuming, of course, that his misdemeanours this summer are merely an exception and not the start of a worrying trend.
Posted 5 Jul 2015Extremely disappointing news. Smoking weed isn't the world's gravest offence, but Richardson should have known better seeing the punishment that getting caught carries in the league.
It makes Leonard Williams falling to us even more of a blessing than it was (assuming his level of play in the NFL lives up to the billing). It also gives Ronald Talley, Kevin Vickerson and Stephen Bowen a better chance of making the team too, which should hopefully lift their level of play. They're three veterans fighting for a chance to stay in the league, so the opportunity to have extended playing time should serve as added motivation.
Posted 23 May 2015It would be great for McDougle to make the team and contribute seeing the misfortune he has had with injuries both in camp last year and during his college career. After the signings we made at corner this offseason though, he's likely to be a bubble player.
Anyone have much info as to whether McDougle played much on special teams in college? It will be very interesting to see how things work out at corner behind Revis, Cromartie and Skrine. I think Milliner could even be a potential casualty seeing as he's coming back from another injury shortened season and may not have the required special teams experience that you normally want your fourth cornerback to have. Walls and Williams, who we finished last season with as starters are in the mix too
Posted 4 May 2015That was to be expected, allowing Maccagnan to put his stamp on the front office staff.
Would have been daft if these moves had been made before the draft.
Posted 1 May 2015Well I think we have some more fuel to this fire. Personally hope we can extend Wilk still
I highly doubt we ship Wilkerson now unless there's a mindblowing deal that combines picks in the rounds remaining and veteran players. I also doubt any deal occurs for future first round picks seeing as we wouldn't get anything tangible in return.
I think the trade rumours have swirled largely due to circumstance. Shortly after Wilkerson doesn't turn up for voluntary workouts, it so happens the top rated defensive player in the draft who is a 3-4 end surprisingly falls to the Jets in the draft and they take him as he is the best available. While negotiations for Wilkerson's new deal haven't borne fruit so far, it's not as if the two sides have been at loggerheads throughout the offseason.
I don't see a big reason to panic over this.
