The Jets and Sheldon Richardson have to be breathing a sigh of relief. After pleading guilty to resisting arrest, stemming from a high-speed chase with cops last July in St. Louis, Richardson could've been slapped with a multi-game suspension. He got off easy with a one-game ban. It'll cost him one game check -- $104,471. This will be the second straight year he misses the opener. He served a four-game suspension last year for a marijuana violation.

In addition to Johnny Manziel facing a four-game suspension in 2016 for violation of the league's substance abuse policy (reported by TMZ and confirmed by ESPN's Adam Caplan), a league source says Manziel is subject to the personal conduct policy if he signs with another team. So, he could face additional penalties upon return.

Spain: Manziel's sobriety decision not logical
