Vikings Sign DT Sheldon Richardson

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – After shoring up the offense by signing quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Vikings have made a big move on the other side of the ball.

The team announced Friday the signing of defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, a former first round pick who spent the first four years of his career with the New York Jets before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks.

Richardson was named Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2013. In his career, he has compiled 286 tackles, 19 sacks, one interception and six forced fumbles.

Richardson will be part of a defensive line that already features Everson Griffen, Linval Joseph and Danielle Hunter.

The only time Richardson played against the Vikings, he sacked quarterback Teddy Bridgewater three times.

The Vikings did not immediately announce the terms of the contract.
