After close to two years of on and off speculation regarding the Jets’ efforts to deal star defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson, Mike Maccagnan has finally pulled the trigger on a deal that will send the highly talented, yet equally polarizing defensive lineman to the Seahawks in exchange for a Jermaine Kearse and an undisclosed draft pick.

Waving goodbye: Sheldon Richardson is finally on his way out of New York.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL network says that he expects the pick to be a 2nd or 3rd rounder.

The trade follows recent speculation that the Jets were once again actively trying to move Richardson after reportedly turning down a second round pick at the trade deadline last season from the Dallas Cowboys.

*Corrected from the original story, the Jets will save $5.6 million as a result of the trade, the difference between Richardson and Kearse’s respective salaries.
