Sheldon Richardson attended Jets' voluntary workouts

New York Jets defensive end Sheldon Richardson attended voluntary workouts last week.

What It Means:

He missed the first day but was present for the rest of the week. Richardson has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason, which fueled speculation that he might not show up for OTA's. ESPN's Rich Cimini expects the Jets to give up on shopping Richardson if they can't find a trade partner by Saturday.

The Jets' defense ranked 10th-worst in opponent-adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points allowed per play last year. Richardson had a career-low two sacks in 2016.

Jerry Hughes excited for Bills' 4-3 scheme shift

Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes believes head coach Sean McDermott's new 4-3 scheme will play to the team's strengths.

What It Means:

"He wants us to go out there and play fast and play physical," said Hughes. "That’s the two main focal points that they’re bringing." The Bills thrived in a 4-3 scheme under defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, but Rex Ryan installed a 3-4 defense when he took over. Shoring up the defense will be a point of emphasis under McDermott and new defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.

Buffalo ranked 20th in the NFL last season in schedule-adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play.

Jaguars will draft a quarterback to compete with Blake Bortles

The Jacksonville Jaguars will draft a quarterback, The Ringer's Mike Lombardi expects.

What It Means:

"Coughlin’s going to draft a quarterback," he said. "This is the perfect draft to do it." Lombardi went on to say the Jaguars need to admit their "mistake" and move on from quarterback Blake Bortles. "[General manager] Dave Caldwell was always looking through rose-colored glasses," Lombardi said of Bortles. "Coughlin doesn’t have those glasses." The Jaguars are near sure to decline Bortles' fifth-year option, making him a free agent at the end of the season.

Bortles had the 10th-worst Passing Net Expected Points per drop back this season among the 39 quarterbacks with at least 100 drop backs. As a team, the Jaguars ranked 24th in the NFL in schedule-adjusted Offensive Net Expected Points per play.

Patriots will trade Malcolm Butler to Saints this week or not at all

If the New England Patriots trade cornerback Malcolm Butler to the New Orleans Saints, "this is the week for it to happen," according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

What It Means:

Reiss believes it will come down to whether the Saints are willing to trade the 32nd overall pick (which they received from the Patriots last month) or 42 and another pick. Per Reiss, the Patriots "don't have any qualms" in keeping Butler around at his $3.91 million salary. Butler was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2016.

Butler would upgrade a New Orleans secondary that was third-worst in the NFL last season in schedule-adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play.

Buccaneers may use Noah Spence some at strong-side linebacker

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Noah Spence could see time at strong side linebacker.

What It Means:

Spence played all his rookie-year snaps at end. The Bucs have a need on the strong side and could get him some time there in base sets. Spence has injury questions coming off labrum surgery, but projects for a bigger second-year role after rotating behind William Gholston and Robert Ayers.

The Buccaneers were seventh-best last season in Adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play.
