Packers Match Raiders Offer Sheet To RFA S Sean Richardson

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Packers have matched the Raiders’ offer sheet to restricted free agent S Sean Richardson.

Oakland signed Richardson to a one-year, $2.55 million deal that breaks down to a $1 million base salary, $1.35 million signing bonus, and a $200,000 reporting bonus.

Had the Packers not matched the Raiders’ offer, they wouldn’t received any compensation given that they used a low-round tender on him.

Richardson, 25, signed on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt back in 2012. In 2014, Richardson appeared in all 16 games for the Packers and recorded 25 tackles.

Richardson is now among the highest paid special teams players in the league.
