FLORHAM PARK, N. Custom Minnesota Twins Jerseys .J. - Sheldon Richardson felt helpless as he watched the scenes near his hometown unfold on TV and social media.The New York Jets defensive tackle was born and raised in St. Louis, just a few minutes away from the suburb of Ferguson, Missouri, where police officer Darren Wilson was not indicted by a grand jury last week in the shooting death of Michael Brown on Aug. 9.Protests, looting and burning buildings followed, and Richardson couldnt do a thing about it.Destroying Ferguson was not what I wanted to come from the verdict of the grand jury, Richardson said Thursday. I actually wanted my whole city to stay intact and I dont think well bounce back from that. Well, the area of Ferguson, anyway. Thats just how I feel about it. I just want my hometown to stay as peaceful as possible, but I dont blame them.I know where theyre coming from and I understand, he added, but thats not the solution.Richardson found out about the ruling after the Jets lost 38-3 to the Buffalo Bills in Detroit on Nov. 24. He wrote that night on Twitter that he wasnt a happy camper because of the game, and because they let this pig get off.Last seasons AP Defensive Rookie of the Year reiterated his frustrations — along with his pig comment — in an interview with the New York Daily News published Wednesday night. He stood by them again in the Jets locker room after practice Thursday.Dont get the word pig wrong, said Richardson, wearing a navy St. Louis Cardinals sweatshirt. I mean, I meant that, but dont take away from my message.And, that message is?A guy got murdered and a guy got off for it, Richardson said. Its just that simple. It just happened out here in New York, too, so its not just in St. Louis. Its pretty bad everywhere now. So much for the justice system.Richardson also clarified that his derogatory comment regarding police officers was not a blanket statement, but rather just aimed at Wilson.Hey, man, Ive got friends who are cops, Richardson said. They laughed about it and said, I cant believe you actually said it, though. I was just referring to one guy. If you want to take it personal (or) make it personal, you know where I work at.Since his arrival last season as a first-round pick from the University of Missouri, Richardson has never been afraid to speak his mind.Why would I be? Its just words, you know? he said. The actions are being done by the police officers, who I feel are doing wrong. Youre supposed to protect and serve, but youre out killing people. And, Im not even talking about Darren Wilson. That was with the cop in New York.Richardson was surprised to hear Wednesday that a grand jury cleared police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner in Staten Island. That decision also sparked demonstrations around the city and the rest of the country.Thats pretty much, as they say, a closed-and-shut case, isnt it? Richardson said. A guys telling you he cant breathe and he wasnt doing anything. I saw the video and its pretty bad. Its just the way it is, man.Richardson and some of his teammates have discussed the cases, and he said he respects both sides of the debate.He also supported the five St. Louis Rams players who made the Hands up. Dont Shoot! gesture before a game last Sunday that protesters in Ferguson have been using. Some witnesses said Brown, who is black, had his hands up before being shot by Wilson, who is white and told the grand jury that he shot Brown in self-defence.It just speaks volumes that somebody else was willing to do something, a peaceful protest, didnt have to say anything. They just went out there and did it, he said. Everybody has their right to an opinion, and its my opinion. Its up to you if you respect it or not, but just dont disrespect me.Richardson was also adamant that his opinion of the Ferguson incident is not a racial issue.Im not trying to make this a white or black thing, he said. Someone got murdered. Its just that simple. Cold blood. Theres been a lot of victims or people who committed crimes that have been apprehended with guns in their hands.After the season, Richardson plans to help the people of his hometown rebound from the unrest while checking on his family regularly.I dont know exactly what I need to do right now, Richardson said, but I need to do something when I get back home — positive.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ;Kent Hrbek Jersey . Sizemore, who turned 29 on Jan. 4, has been limited to six games over the past two seasons because of an injured left knee that twice required surgery. He originally got hurt on Feb. 25, 2012, during a fielding drill in Oaklands first full-squad spring training workout and had surgery that March 21 to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Paul Molitor Jersey . Dallas also Monday recalled defenceman Aaron Rome from his conditioning assignment with the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League and assigned goaltender Jack Campbell to the AHL squad.CHICAGO -- Record-setting returner Devin Hester said Wednesday he will not be back with the Chicago Bears next season. "From my knowledge, I know that Chicago wants to go a different route with me," Hester told the NFL Network. "All I can say is thanks to the fans for their support. Theyve always been great to me. Always been loyal. I couldnt have played for a better city than those guys. At the end of my career, I do want to retire as a member of the Bears." He added the Bears are "parting ways" with him. The team declined comment. It looks as if Hester will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent after an eight-year run with the Bears that produced no shortage of highlights. He matched Hall of Famer Deion Sanders NFL record with his 19th return for a touchdown last season, tying his friend and mentor with an 81-yard punt return at Washington in October. It was Hesters 13th punt return for a TD, extending his own record in that category. He has also returned five kickoffs and one missed field goal for touchdowns. A three-time Pro Bowl pick, Hester is best remembered by Bears fans for returning the opening kickoff in the 2007 Super Bowl for a touchdown. He ran it back 92 yards for a score in a game the Bears went on to lose to Indianapolis. Hester endured several lulls on returns during his career, particularly when the Bears tried to make him a receiver. But he showed some of his old form while focusing solely on returns last season. His touchdown return against Washington was his first in nearly two years. Miguel Sano Jersey. Hester led the NFL with a career-high 1,436 kick return yards on a league-high 52 tries, and he returned five kickoffs for a team-record 249 yards against Minnesota in September. Now, it looks like hes moving on. Hester expressed interest in reuniting with former coach Lovie Smith in Tampa Bay. "I look at Lovie as my number one coach right now because hes the one that took a chance on me coming out of the draft," Hester said. "He has all my respect so if hes a guy that is going to shoot at me and want me to come play with him again, my arms are open." The news from Hester comes on the same day the Bears terminated the contract of punter Adam Podlesh and signed defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff to a two-year deal. A four-time Pro Bowl pick, Ratliff started four of the five games he played in after signing with Chicago in November. He spent the first six weeks with Dallas on the physically unable to perform list before being released in mid-October, with the Cowboys saying he failed a physical. Ratliff missed the final six games in 2012 with a groin injury that required surgery. The Bears, who had one of their worst defensive seasons ever, saw enough good things to bring him back. Ratliff had 14 1/2 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks with Chicago. In nine seasons with the Cowboys and Bears, he has 331 1/2 tackles and 28 1/2 sacks. The Bears have signed 10 players who were due to become unrestricted free agents March 11, most of any team in the NFL. Boston Celtics Jerseys Online China Nets Jerseys Wholesale New York Knicks Jerseys Wholesale Philadelphia 76ers Jerseys Discount Raptors Jerseys Cheap Nike Bulls Jerseys China Cavaliers Jerseys Cheap Detroit Pistons Jerseys Discount Pacers JerseysWholesale Milwaukee Bucks Jerseys Wholesale Atlanta Hawks Jerseys China Hornets Jerseys Wholesale Miami Heat Jerseys Wholesale Orlando Magic Jerseys Wholesale Washington Wizards Jerseys Discount Nuggets Jerseys Cheap Nike Timberwolves Jerseys Cheap Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys Discount Jazz Jerseys Cheap Nike Warriors Jerseys Wholesale Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys Wholesale Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys China Suns Jerseys Wholesale Sacramento Kings Jerseys Cheap Nike Mavericks Jerseys Cheap Nike Rockets Jerseys Discount Grizzlies Jerseys Cheap Nike Pelicans Jerseys Wholesale San Antonio Spurs Jerseys ' ' '
