Sheldon Richardon, anyone?

Cleveland just released DT Sheldon Richardson.  Personally I think he would be a PERFECT addition to our defense.  I'm not sure if we have the money to go after him, but damn he would look nice next to Brown next year.

Would fill the last major hole on the roster outside of LT heading into the draft.

Richardson has never completely lived up to the hype, but I think he is still a starting caliber player.

And I'm still down for Short too (at a much reduced price).

Once we solidify DT, I'm feeling pretty good about the roster, especially on defense.  Our secondary is still unproven, but there is a lot more talent to work with than at any point since 2017.

I think Phil Snow made a lot of chicken salad with chicken crap last year, and I'm genuinely excited to see what he can do with more talent.

Then it comes back to the offense... can we protect Darnold and can Darnold prove that the Jets held him back and not the other way around?

We have the playmakers on offense to score if so.

This year feels a lot more unpredictable than last IMO... I honestly could see anywhere from 4 wins (if Darnold sucks) to up to 11 wins (based on 17 game season) if Brady/Rhule can help Darnold become the QB he was projected to be.

Darnold is obviously a much more boom-or-bust prospect than Teddy ever was or will be.

We've all seen Darnold make the elite-arm talent throws but also the boneheaded plays that are almost as egregious as the Mark Sanchez butt-fumble... hopefully it's just the curse of the Jets

But back to the point, I would be totally cool with a 1-year deal for Richardson, and I'm sure Fitts & Co are looking into it...

Burns, Brown, Richardson, and Reddick is a legitimate D-Line...

Shaq, Perryman, and Chinn is the most intriguing LB corp we have had in a while

I'm still not sure how the secondary ultimately shakes out, but that would be a massive improvement for the Front 7 at a minimum.

Having the QB running for his life on every play mysteriously makes the secondary look a lot better.

I would love to have a 2013-esque Defensive Line/ Front 7 that was so dominant that we could play undrafted guys like Melvin White and Robert Lester in the secondary and still be a top defense
