The Seattle Seahawks made headlines this weekend by acquiring standout defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson in a trade with the New York Jets.

Richardson comes to the Hawks on an $8 million per season deal which Seattle can easily afford.

Sheldon Richardson played 15 games with the Jets last season recording 38 tackles, 24 assists, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

The move improves Seattle’s already solid defensive line which includes Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Frank Clark.

Richardson has looked like a beast so far this preseason so Seattle fans should be thrilled by the trade.
