Sheldon Richardson told the New York Daily News that two teams made offers to the New York Jets to trade for the defensive lineman, but on the condition that Richardson would take a pay cut.

"That's their decision", Richardson said of staying with the Jets "Would I pay me?"

Richardson told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News he was asked to take a pay cut to make a trade work. "And Washington too", Richardson told the Daily News. A lot of good offers.

The 26-year-old Richardson is entering the final year of his contract in 2017, which means NY could risk losing him for nothing in free agency next offseason. He recorded 62 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 15 games last season.

Richardson has collected 241 tackles and 18 sacks in 58 career games since being selected by NY with the 13th overall pick of the 2013 draft. He also kicked off both the 2015 and 2016 seasons with suspensions (four games in 2015 for testing positive for marijuana, one game in 2016 for off-the-field conduct stemming from driving 140 miles per hour in Missouri and resisting arrest). "In my opinion, I'm the best defensive lineman in the league".

"Would I pay me?" "I would (keep Leonard Williams, Muhammad Wilkerson and himself), because you can save money in other places with a stout defensive line".

"Ask other offensive linemen", Richardson said.
