Chargers Place WR Rico Richardson On I.R. After Going Unclaimed

The San Diego Chargers officially placed WR Rico Richardson on injured reserve Friday after he passed through waivers on unclaimed.

Richardson, 24, originally signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Jackson State back in 2013. After a brief stint with the Texans, Richardson signed on with the Titans back in June of 2014 and was on and off of their practice squad during his time in Tennessee.

Unfortunately, the Titans elected to place Richardson on waivers at the end of last season and not bring him back on a future/reserve contract. Richardson later signed a contract with the Cardinals in June only to be waived soon after.

The Chargers just signed him to a contract a few weeks ago before waiving him with the injury designation yesterday.

In 2015, Richardson was active for five games, but did not record a single statistic.
