Sheldon Richardson signs with Vikings

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Vikings are signing defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

The Vikings defense was already among the best in football, though this signing takes it up another notch. Richardson will add a piece to the defensive line that is expected to lose defensive tackle Tom Johnson in free agency. Playing in a division against Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, and Mitchell Trubisky, the addition of Richardson should create much-needed pressure up the middle. He only recorded one sack in 2017, but he had 28 quarterback hurries which tied for seventh among defensive tackles. While we don't advocate drafting defenses outside of your final draft pick in fantasy football, the Vikings make a strong case to maybe snag them a round or two before your final pick.
