Richardson registered only 1.5 sacks last season, so it’s not like they traded away Aaron Donald Jersey Jersey. Nevertheless, Richardson played 736 defensive snaps in 2016 and was a disruptive presence against the run. So, yes, there’s a void.cheap jerseys “We have depth there,” said coach Todd Bowles, commenting for the first time on the trade. “That was our deepest position at the time. Obviously, we have three other guys that can play and we have [Mike] Pennel that can play and we have Claude [Pelon] that can play. You don’t replace a guy like that, you just do different things.” Cheap Telvin Smith jersey The Jets will have to find someone else to take the 736 defensive snaps Sheldon Richardson Jersey played last season. Alan Schaefer/Icon SportswireThe Jets have six defensive linemen on the roster. Steve McLendon Jersey and Pennel are nose tackles; Wilkerson, Pelon and Leonard Williams Jersey can play tackle or end. They also have Kony Ealy Jersey Jersey Jersey, who is best suited to end. Williams (866 snaps) and Wilkerson (818) logged a heavy workload last season, so you can’t expect them to increase their totals. As Bowles said, they will have to rely more on backups than before. They also could cut back on the 4-3 usage, staying in their base 3-4 front. McLendon was sorry to lose a player of Richardson’s caliber, but he doesn’t believe it will hurt the defensive line. “I don’t see any negative at all,” he said. McLendon also said, “I don’t want to use any other team, but if you look around the league, some teams probably don’t have as much talent as we have, but they’re probably at times a little bit more disciplined. That’s where we need to be at.” Not that anybody needed a reminder, but the trade reinforced the intent of the organization. The Jets are rebuilding. They were willing to weaken their defense to add an average wide receiver (Jermaine Kearse Jersey) and, most importantly, a second-round pick in 2018. “Ask the people upstairs, I just play football,” said Wilkerson, responding to a question about the direction of the team. Bowles, whose roster has been stripped of most veterans, called the trade “a good move for both parties. It was a good move for us, short term and long term. We needed another wideout and we got an extra pick, and they got a good player.” Bowles said it’s similar to losing a player to injury, insisting that coaches must learn to adjust. Thing is, injuries are out of a team’s control; the Jets controlled Richardson’s future and decided to send him packing. “Whether a guy is traded, suspended, cut, hurt or anything else, you have to adjust,” Bowles said. “As a coach, you have to be prepared to adjust, so it’s no different.”
