Breaking: Tony Richardson Re-signs with Jets

That was fast, TRich expected to be back.


Head Coach Rex Ryan said in his press conference that FB Tony Richardson has in fact been re-signed and will play Monday Night vs Baltimore, CB Brian Jackson has been waived.

Added by Jon Presser: Looks like the Jets cut Richardson yesterday because he would not have been exposed to waivers and was able to be re-signed immediately. Essentially I believe the Jets cut Richardson so they could sign Revis as soon as possible and then take a day to figure out who would be the odd man out. Obviously, that guy is Jackson, who has been waived as Nick said.

Original Post:

Breaking right now, word is FB Tony Richardson, who was cut by the Jets yesterday, is expected to resign with the Jets this week, and I hear it could be as soon as today, stay tuned for more news.

This could be great news, and a total 180 degree turn from about 12 hours ago, when Jets nation was in turmoil, but since then they locked up Darrelle Revis, and now resign T-Rich. Good stuff.
