New York Jets defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson doesn’t know what an NFL world looks like without Tom Brady and the New England Patriots atop the AFC East.

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.
