Summary

After a disappointing start to his NFL career, Richardson has a chance for a fresh start in Oakland and enters training camp with a real opportunity to compete with Latavius Murray for the starting RB job. The Raiders signed Richardson to a modest two year contract this offseason after he was waived by the Colts. Richardson was the 3rd overall pick in the 2012 draft by the Cleveland Browns and had a solid rookie rookie season before being traded to Indianapolis early in the 2013 season for a 1st round draft pick. The trade was an unmitigated disaster for the Colts as Richardson averaged just under 3.1 YPC in his two seasons in Indianapolis. Richardson never seemed comfortable in the Colts offense and often displayed a puzzling lack of vision in the Colts. In addition, he showed very little burst and seemed to be running in slow motion at times. Oakland may be Richardson's final shot to salvage what once was a very promising career. If he shows up focused and fit, he has a shot at winning the starting RB job in an Oakland offense that hopes to establish a power running game to take the pressure off of young QB Derek Carr.
