Paul Richardson Jr.
WR - FA
Week 8 Outlook
The Seattle Seahawks are releasing WR Paul Richardson Jr.
Richardson is being released just six days after signing with his former team. He spent four seasons in Seattle prior to joining the Washington Football Team in 2018. It was going to be a nice homecoming for the former Seahawk, but it won’t turn out as planned.
WR Paul Richardson signed a contract with the Seahawks on Saturday.
Richardson worked out for the Seahawks recently and officially signed with Seattle on Saturday. He spent four years (2014-2017) with the team and will reunite with QB Russell Wilson. The 28-year-old hauled in 28 receptions for 245 yards and two touchdowns across 10 games for the Redskins in 2019. Richardson provides the Seahawks depth at wide receiver, but is not on the fantasy radar for 2020.
WR Paul Richardson is visiting the Seahawks and could re-sign with the team this week
Richardson was released by the Redskins in February and a Seattle reunion is possible. He was at the Seahawks' facility for COVID-19 testing and could sign with the team later this week. The 28-year-old hauled in 28 receptions for 245 yards and two touchdowns across 10 games for the Redskins in 2019. Richardson provides the Seahawks depth at wide receiver, but is not on the fantasy radar for 2020.
Paul Richardson (hamstring) was placed on the injured reserve Saturday.
Richardson re-aggravated a hamstring injury Week 11 and has been unable to suit up since. He has only played 17 of 32 games since joining the Redskins two years ago. Richardson will finish 2019 with 28 catches for 245 yards and two touchdowns on 42 targets.
Washington wide receiver Paul Richardson remained limited in practice on Thursday due to a hamstring injury.
Richardson has played in just one game since before the team's Week 10 bye week, though his limited practice sessions mean he is at least trending in the right direction. He should be considered very questionable for this weekend's matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles and could be a game-time decision.
