Jets’ Sheldon Richardson Still Holds Grudge With Brandon Marshall
Richard and Marshall’s personal feud was well-documented and almost came to blows in the locker room after a Week 3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
In an interview with Michael Kay on ESPN New York 98.7, Richardson pulled no punches with airing out his feelings towards Marshall.
“That man knows what he did to the locker room,” Richardson said during Monday’s appearance (h/t ESPN).
“I was the one who addressed it and I would still address it to this day. If he can’t come out [in the] media and tell ’em what he did and how he actually quit on his team way before the season was over, that’s all in itself.”
Richardson was asked if he was glad that Marshall, who requested his release from the Jets back in March, was no longer on the team; “In a way, yeah, I am.”
“That whole situation was sticky because we were losing and then you’re doing little things that are drama queen-ish, and he’s dogging out this guy and that guy,” Richardson said.
“It’s everybody’s fault except for his. … No one wanted to say something to him. Then I say something to him, the criminal, the bad guy, and the media just ran with it.”
Along with Marshall’s request for release Marshall stated that he didn’t want to be part of a losing program.
“He contributed to that,” Richardson said.
“You have to look within yourself. He was out there when we was taking those L’s. That’s what a team is supposed to do.
“If you want to be that guy, you should be the reason the team is changing their culture.”
