New York Jets DL Sheldon Richardson Has Given Himself a Sweet Nickname

There are certain things you just don't do as a guy. You don't date your buddy's ex even if he says its okay (because it never is). You don't choose a chick flick over an action movie (let her choose the chick flick when it's her turn that way you can keep your pride), and by no means do you ever give yourself a nickname.

Sheldon Richardson to Jets fans: Shut up

It wasn’t a pretty sight in New Jersey on Sunday afternoon as the New York Jets put up a horrendous offensive performance in a 24-17 loss to the Detroit Lions.
