The Cleveland Browns' 2019 season has been nothing short of a disappointment, and frustrations are boiling over in the locker room. Defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson saw himself benched in the second half on Sunday, and when approached about it after the game, he didn't have a lot to say. In fact, he didn't say anything at all.

Richardson was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after getting into a heated exchange with Ravens DB Marcus Peters, who was standing over the injured Sheldrick Redwine.

The veteran DT was then pulled from the game by Freddie Kitchens, and it's safe to say he disagrees with the decision.

He may not have voiced his displeasure with Kitchens like some offensive weapons, but he didn't need to.

Richardson had, by all means, an effective game on Sunday before being benched. He made three tackles, defended two passes and logged a quarterback hit on Lamar Jackson. Despite that, Kitchens still opted to remove him.
