Trent Richardson cut by Oakland Raiders

Trent Richardson Raiders

Trent Richardson is running out of opportunities in the NFL.

The former No. 3 overall pick is among the first cuts by the Oakland Raiders, Bill Williamson reported Monday.

Richardson was waived by the Indianapolis Colts in March and signed by the Raiders to a one-year deal. The Raiders guaranteed the Alabama product $600,000, but he was so unimpressive in the preseason that they are letting him go. Richardson gained 42 yards on 15 preseason carries for a 2.8 yards per carry average. He also had this terrible play.

This would make three teams that have given up on the former top prospect. Not only did the Browns trade him to Indy, but the Colts were frustrated with Richardson’s weight and accessibility before waiving him. He would be lucky to get one more chance in the NFL before his career ends.
