Redskins Worked Out 5 Players Including RB Daryl Richardson

According to Howard Balzer, the Redskins brought in five players for tryouts on Tuesday including RB Daryl Richardson.

The full list includes:

  1. G Alex Balducci
  2. G Greg Pyke
  3. RB Travaris Cadet
  4. RB Jonathan Grimes
  5. RB Daryl Richardson

Of this group, Washington signed Balducci to their practice squad.

Richardson, 27, 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 2015 and was on and off of their practice squad for most of the year before being waived and later signed to the Browns’ practice squad.

The Steelers signed Richardson to a future/reserve contract with the Steelers last year, and he was on and off of their active roster before being claimed by the Jaguars.

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

Cadet, 28, originally signed on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Appalachian State back in 2012. He spent three years in New Orleans before he was allowed to test the open market in 2015.

The Patriots elected to sign Cadet to a two-year contract worth $1.75 million. Unfortunately, they cut him loose during the season. The 49ers later signed him to a contract after they lost Carlos Hyde for the season, but was waived towards the end of the year and later claimed off of waivers by the Saints.

Cadet returned to New Orleans on one-year deals each of the past two seasons but was cut loose coming out of the preseason.

In 2016, Cadet appeared in 15 games and rushed 19 yards on four carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with 40 receptions for 281 yards receiving and four touchdowns. He also contributed 144 kick return yards.
