The Patriots have won the division every season since Richardson was drafted in 2013 – and the three years before that, too – and have also taken home two Lombardi Trophies over that span.
But Richardson doesn’t want Brady to retire; well, not until he’s taken the star quarterback down first.
“I’ve told him before I’ve left the field, ‘Bro, don’t retire till I beat you,'” Richardson told Darryl Slater of NJ.com last week. “He laughed it off and kept going. It’s a pleasure to play against him. But he knows what I’m chasing, and he knows I’m trying to knock the king off his throne.”
Richardson’s record against New England is 2-6. While the reigning Super Bowl champions improved their roster this offseason, the Jets shed the majority of their veteran talent and look primed for a rebuilding year. The veteran defensive tackle is facing an uphill battle to bring balance back to the rivalry.
