Sheldon Richardson is one of many big acquisitions made by the Browns this offseason.

This is the 31st installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I try to keep these articles short and sweet.

#98- Sheldon Richardson– DT- Missouri

Every time (Sheldon) Richardson hits an opposing quarterback it sounds like a Big Bang. Speaking of which, I have a “theory” that the Browns’ defensive line will form the most intimidating group of men named Sheldon, Larry, and Myles ever assembled. (It would’ve been even better if they added Gerald McCoy).

Richardson is a former first-round draft pick and pro-bowler with the New York Jets. He is also coming off of an impressive campaign with the Minnesota Vikings where he recorded 49 tackles with 4.5 sacks and 16 quarterback hits. Another positive for Richardson is his durability. (This is the part of the breakdown where you are supposed to knock on wood). The big defensive tackle has only missed seven games in his six-year career, with four of them as a result of a suspension in 2015 due to violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Partnering Richardson up with fellow defensive tackle, Larry Ogunjobi, is almost unfair. When you add in Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon at the end positions, it’s kind of hard to believe that opposing quarterbacks will ever attempt anything more than a three-step drop. Everyone has been hyping up the Browns offense, but this defense should be the real deal this year.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
