Tony Richardson back with the Jets
By Tim Graham
Darrelle Revis and Tony Richardson were on the New York Jets practice field Tuesday.
Now we can get back to harping on Mark Sanchez as the club's most glaring question.
Two days after releasing Richardson to make room for some waiver-wire pickups, the Jets brought back their venerable fullback, perhaps the biggest voice in the locker room. Their decision to drop him Sunday disgusted many of his teammates.
"It was jaw-dropping," said tight end Dustin Keller, whose locker stall is adjacent to Richardson's. "I couldn't believe it. He's our top veteran on offense. If we become the Super Bowl team we want to be, to do it without him would be tough.
"T-Rich has been a mentor to so many guys on this team, especially myself."
