Klis mentions that the Broncos aren’t looking to add Richardson this season, which his best shot with Denver would likely be on a future/reserve contract. This would allow him to compete for a roster next summer.
Richardson, 25, was taken with the No. 3 overall pick by the Browns during the 2012 NFL draft. However, he lasted just over a year in Cleveland before he was traded to the Colts for a first-round pick.
The Raiders elected to sign him to a two-year, $3.85 million contract that included $600,000 guaranteed back in March, only to release him during roster cuts.
He later worked out for Bills and Saints, but didn’t receive an offer from either team.
In 2014, he ran for 519 yards on 159 carries (3.3 YPC) to go along with 27 receptions for 229 yards receiving and three touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 29 running back out of 57 qualifying players.
