Sheldon Richardson, who was drafted by the Jets in 2013 (the year he won DROY) and notched his first Pro Bowl season in New York in 2014, reflects on his personal growth since being traded away last year: "When Rex was with them I was doing pretty good for the most part making a name for myself in the league and after that, it's kind of self-inflicted wounds and just me not overcoming my personal battles in life that got me out of there and that changed everything around there. That's pretty much it and I pretty much grew from everywhere. At every phase of my life I grew from it. In Seattle, my time I spent there, I grew from that, not knowing where I was going to be this offseason. Just sitting down. You go for a year straight, you know what you're doing, you know what to expect and then you go and you don't know. You don't know where you're at, as far as you're career. And battling through that and landing in a good situation (in Minnesota), good team, good family-oriented guys, good coaching staff. Can't really beat it."
