What grade do you give the Jets and Seahawks for the trade that sent DL Sheldon Richardson to the Seahawks for a 2nd round draft pick and WR Jermaine Kearse?

Jets D, Hawks B

Jets lose a legit talent because they mismanaged and disgruntled him and overdrafted his position.  Should never have got to this point, and we should have, I don't know, maybe a decent QB instead of Wilk, Sheldon AND Williams all drafted high at the same position.

Jets gain a nobody #3 WR and a 2nd Round Pick Macc will likely waste on another DLineman or maybe a 12th Safety.

Now we get to see if Sheldon, who isn;t my favorite Jet by any stretch, goes on to have a great post-Jets career (Like Abe).

I'm shocked that the Jets got a 2nd rounder for this guy after they did their best destroying his value.

Seattle knows what they're doing.  He's a really good fit in that defense.  The Jets will find out quickly that it was a mistake keeping Wilkerson over this guy.

The mis management of the wilk contract I believe is a direct result of Richardsons off field issues.

A for the Jets and B (I wanna say B+) for the Hawks.

The Jets essentially pulled a rabbit out of their hat by trading a player with character issues who was as good as gone in a few months time. I still don't know how Mac managed to get a second rounder of all things from this. 

The only downside for Seattle is that they lost a fairly high piece of draft capital. Doesn't mean much though as they're obviously all in on this season and I think Shell is a better fit on that team then he would have been here.

Richardson was never going to be re-signed.   By this regime or the next.  Get what you can.  Argument could be made he plays out of his mind and could have gotten more in a few weeks?  Maybe......

I gave us a B and Seattle an A. That A is based on his potential. From their point of view it was worth the 2nd round pick plus they wanted to get rid of Kearse. The Jets did ok because Sheldon is a FA next year and has been at odds with management for several years. And we can use Kearse.

A++ for the Jets.  This is a tank year.   We get future high draft pick value and cap money.  We also get a player who can help the Qbs develop in this system.

A for the Seahawks.  They are getting older.  This could be their year.  Set Richardson loose with good players around him motivated for a new contract.

Its really a great deal for both sides.   Nothing would make me happier than if the Jets tanked and the Seahawks won the SuperBowl.

Your team just got appreciably worse by holding a fire sale for a player that steamrolled the weak head coach and teabagged the halfwit GM. This trade is the equivalent of getting $50 at the recycling plant for the Ferrari you just totaled because you were playing Candy Crush while doing 95 MPH on the autobahn. "Hey, I got $50 for that worthless piece of steel that was worth $150k ten minutes ago!" Dopes.

More like we let them rent a Ferrari with nothing wrong with it for one year except that at any moment it could take a puff of weed or skip a game in search of "hoes" has to be diciplined for showing up late and at the end of the year is going to demand that you pay it 25 million dollars per year in order to keep driving it and they gave us a bag of trash with some usable crap left inside plus a second round draft pick?

Never thought we'd get anything for that fat slob.  A+ for the Jets.

Seattle gets an F unless they are able to resign him.  Giving away a 2nd round pick on a player rental is beyond dumb.  If they do resign him, the grade goes up.  If he gets paid and then gets a year suspension, it goes back down.

Whatever. Good riddance.

Yeah, but it could've been $25 dollars, so...

Big success!

Except the Ferrari is more like a Miata and is 1 blown cylinder from being stashed in the garage for a year.

Jets get a D and Seattle gets an A.  Seattle's 2nd round pick is more like a top of the 3rd round pick.  Richardson was the best football player on the Jets, only 26 years old.  Very bad deal IMO.  If they were going to trade with Seattle, then only a 1st round pick would have been fair.   Wilkerson has not shown me much this preseason, and Richardson has shown a lot.  I would have been happier if we traded Wilkerson for a 2nd round pick, but Seattle would have never made that trade.
