The Jets’ season was over even before they lost 9-6 to the Rams at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.
So what do they have left to play for? Well, Sheldon Richardson had a lewd answer to that question.
“I ain’t never the type to roll over and take it…” Richardson said.
So pride then?
“However you want to word it,” he said.
The Jets are a mess and it showed again on Sunday, when they lost the ugliest of games to a subpar opponent.
Richardson expanded on what the Jets (3-7) have left to battle for in their remaining six games of the season.
“Just mess up as much of the division as we can,” he said, noting it was not a role he particularly enjoyed.
“Fourteen, 16 hour days,” Richardson said. “To come out here and not make the playoffs. Nah, not at all. Not my style. Not at all.”
Richardson has never made the playoffs in his four-year career.
“Guys who I played college ball with they come in their rookie year, getting playoff runs. Won a Super Bowl, too. It’s frustrating,” he said.
The Jets have already exercised their team option on Richardson for the 2017 season, but his future is certainly up in the air as he was already on the trade block before the deadline this year. Asked if the Jets’ repeated failure affects his desire to remain with the team, Richardson said, “I don’t predict the future. Don’t even get me started on that. It’s not my choice.”
