Sheldon Richardson will have to face the music on Tuesday.
Jets coach Todd Bowles said in an interview on “The Michael Kay Show” that he plans to speak with Richardson Tuesday morning after the defensive end posted a profane video on Snapchat prior to Gang Green’s 34-13 loss to the Dolphins Saturday night.
“You don’t want that stuff to happen,” Bowles said in the interview. “We don’t condone that on the team or this organization. Obviously, I know me and a lot of other people in their 20s do things they regret and it’s something we just got to take care of in-house.”
The former Defensive Rookie of the Year posted a video of himself on teammate Rontez Miles’ account saying, “Snapchat takeover gang gang in this b—h. You know, pregame s–t. Where the h–s at?”
Richardson then appears to either say “f–k this game” or “don’t f–k this guy.”
The Jets will likely discipline the 26-year-old defensive end, something they’ve become very accustomed to doing.
In Week 9 Richardson was benched for the first quarter after being late for a team meeting. He missed the season-opener after facing discipline for his arrest after allegedly driving 143 mph with a registered gun and 12-year-old child in the car.
Richardson was also suspended four games in 2015 for failing a drug test for marijuana.
“He’s a significant player,” Bowles said. “This isn’t marijuana or a drug-related incident. This is something out of line on Snapchat… That’s what it was. It was a very immature thing to do and we’ll take care of it tomorrow.”
Bowles added it doesn’t make a difference if it was Richardson or a player with a clean history; the actions are unacceptable to him.
“To me, it bothers me that it was said period. We don’t condone that kind of language on social media or anything else,” Bowles said. “Forget the fact it was Sheldon. The fact that it was said was disturbing.”
