2014 Week 18 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Battling an illness late in the week, Richardson played just one snap on Sunday. Whether it was the illness, the Colts coaches coming to their senses or a combination of both, Dan Herron being the workhorse is the right move for this team. Richardson is the second back at best.
Latest NewsRaiders | Latavius Murray to compete to start (Wed Mar 25, 01:54 AM) - Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said Tuesday, March 24, that he expects RB Latavius Murray and RB Trent Richardson to compete for the starting tailback job. 'I think it will be a competitive situation,' Del Rio said. Our View: If Richardson can stay in shape, stay healthy and get motivated then he's got tremendous physical ability. The problem is, we haven't seen him flash that ability since his rookie season (2012) in Cleveland. Murray is an ascending player with speed and power. We're putting our chips on Murray to win this job.
link to story Raiders | Trent Richardson to compete for starter (Tue Mar 17, 02:12 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson will be competing with RB Latavius Murray for the starting running back position this offseason. Our View: Murray has to be considered the frontrunner here. Richardson may have more natural talent, but it has not been on display since his rookie season in 2012--and he may never be the player he could be. Stay tuned.
link to story Raiders | Trent Richardson signs with Oakland (Tue Mar 17, 12:58 PM) - Free-agent RB Trent Richardson (Colts) signed with the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, March 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. Our View: This is a Raiders move all the way. For years--decades even--the Raiders have been the final stop for once highly-touted players who lost their way. Sometimes the reclamation projects work out, and sometimes they don't. Talent isn't a question with Richardson--but motivation and lack of durability certainly are. We'll see if he can beat out Latavius Murray for the starting job in training camp.
