Former Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson allowed insult to injury after Gang Greens 37-17 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.
Richardson, who had two tackles for the Vikings in the victory, shot a shot at Jets fans after listing a lot of purple sweaters in the locations at MetLife Stadium.
“We’re doing well … I noticed it,” Richardson said, per New York Post. “Jetsna never really filled the stadiums anyway.”
The 27-year-old former first round draft also added a little dig at Jets offensive, who turned the ball over four times.
“They served them on a plate,” said Richardson. “It was not really that hard.”
Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold was responsible for most conversions and threw three interceptions on a cold October day ̵
1; as Richardson said he would disrupt Jets quarterback.
“He looked like he was cold, he looked like he was frustrated a little, got frustrated with play, frustrated with his line a bit,” told Richardson New York Post. “That’s what I can tell you. I do not know if he’s good or bad of it.”
While Richardson was critical of the fans and their insults, 2013 allowed the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year to beat his former team – who handed him to Seahawks at the beginning of last season – had no extra meaning to him.
“Life continues,” he said. “It’s still my family over there, it’s all love. Football is a family. It was fun. Of course it was fun, but it was just another game. There’s a whole other half season to play.”
