SNY goes behind the scenes with Sheldon Richardson to check out his off season training sessions with Mo Wilkerson. Both players talk to Jeane Coakley about the vigorous workouts and their approach to the 2014 season.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comThinking about the kind of rookie season Sheldon Richardson had, it’s hard not to think about what another season with Muhammad Wilkerson and the rest of the Sons of Anarchy could do together. While Richardson’s play from the outset of the season was strong, it will be enjoyable to watch him build on his success from last year. Richardson was deadly against the run, but expect him to get much more involved as a pass rusher in his second season.
While Richardson had a lot of success as a rookie, it’s good to see him taking lessons from veteran Mo Wilkerson.
Pete Jenkins (the coach featured in the video) is one of the all time great line coaches, mostly at the college level, but also for a period of time in the late 2000s with the Eagles. Jenkins has coached at LSU and USC, among many other programs. You can watch a cut up of some of the technique of his players on the practice field and then in game here.
