Jaguars Place RB T.J. Yeldon On I.R. & Claim RB Daryl Richardson Off Waivers


The Jacksonville Jaguars officially claimed RB Daryl Richardson off of waivers from the Steelers and placed RB T.J. Yeldon on injured reserve.

Yeldon, 23, is a former second-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2015. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $5.913 million contract that included $3.699 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 and $705,000 over the next two years.

In 2016, Yeldon appeared in 15 games for the Jaguars and rushed for 465 yards on 130 carries (3.6 YPC) to go along with 50 receptions for 312 yards receiving and two total touchdowns.

Richardson, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Rams back in 2012. He spent two years in St. Louis before he was waived and later claimed by the Jets, but was unfortunately among the team’s early roster cuts.

The Texans signed Richardson in September and was on and off of their practice squad for most of the year before being waived close to a month ago. The Browns wound up signing him to their practice squad towards the end of last year but later signed a future/reserve contract with the Steelers.

Richardson has been on and off of the Steelers’ active roster this season.

In 2016, Richardson has appeared in three games and ran for seven yards on two carries to go along with no touchdowns.
