After having his future in question after being traded from the Browns and released by the Colts, running back Trent Richardson didn’t have to wait long for his next job.
Running back for the Oakland Raiders.
Richardson was signed to compete in the Raiders backfield with Latavius Murray and Roy Helu. He’s one of 10 free agents that the Raiders have signed thus far.
It didn’t work out for Richardson in Indianapolis, where in theory it sounded like a good idea. But in 29 games with the Colts, Richardson never ran for 100 yards. We’ll see if he turns his career around and shows some of the promise he had at Alabama.
