Reports came out today that Sheldon Richardson was arrested earlier this month. This was the first fans heard of it. It also was apparently the first the Jets heard of it.
#Jets did NOT know about the latest incident with Sheldon Richardson until media reports— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) July 30, 2015
Last tweet was statement from #NYJ. It is my understanding that they were unaware of Richardson's arrest until the story broke today.— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) July 30, 2015

I don't see any need to further pile on, but this has clearly not been a great offseason for Richardson, who is already suspended four games for an unrelated matter. If you want a silver lining, the Jets do have an exceptionally talented rookie waiting to take Sheldon's snaps when the season starts.
