Jets, FB Richardson agree to terms on 1-year deal
NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets and fullback Tony Richardson have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, with $500,000 guaranteed.


New coach Rex Ryan said he wanted the Jets to have an all-weather offense, and bringing back the bulldozing 14-year veteran will certainly help. Richardson, 37, paved the way for Thomas Jones to lead the AFC in rushing last season.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection helped Priest Holmes to three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in Kansas City from 2001-03, and Larry Johnson in 2005. He did it again the following season in Minnesota with Chester Taylor, and was instrumental in Adrian Peterson becoming a star with 1,341 yards as a rookie in 2007.

Richardson is also in his second two-year term as a member of the NFL Players Association's executive committee, the group in charge of finding a replacement for the late Gene Upshaw as the union's executive director.

The Jets have been active since the NFL's free-agent signing period began at 12:10 a.m. Friday. They've signed former Baltimore linebacker Bart Scott, traded for cornerback Lito Sheppard and re-signed Richardson and right guard Brandon Moore.
