Richardson Cut by Raiders: Worst Running Back of All Time?

Trent Richardson was recently released by the Oakland Raiders, which leaves fans wondering if he’s the worst RB ever? Let’s take a look at Richardson’s stats for a moment. Had a heck of a career with Alabama…check, was drafted No.3 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns…check…has had a HOF career in the NFL…not really. With the Browns, Richardson played in 17 total games…in 2 seasons…and with the Indi Colts, Richardson played 29 total games…not so bad. In his career in Oakland…cut to make room for the 75-man roster, but not before leaving with $600,000 he had in guaranteed money. Richardson looked to be promising after his rookie debut season, finishing with 950 yards rushing, with 11 rushing scores, but had only a long rush of 32 yards; he also caught 51 receptions for 367 yards and 1 TD. Cleveland eventually had enough of him during the 2013 season and traded him to Indi for a 1st round draft pick in the 2014 draft. With Indi, Richardson rushed for a total of 977 yards and caught 55 passes for 494 yards with 1 TD. In his total rushing career, Richardson only has a few yards over 2000, but averaged 3.3 yards a carry in his career. Is Richardson a bust? Yahoo! Sports talks about it in this article. In that same article, it states that current ESPN analyst and former NFL S Ryan Clark called Richardson “The Worst NFL Running back of all time.” While he may not have lived up to his first round status, there have been worse backs than Richardson.

Breaking: Terrelle Pryor Finds a New Home

Former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor has finally found a new home in Cincinnati. Pryor was released by the Chiefs earlier in the week, but was invited to a Cincinnati Bengals minicamp and afterwards signed him to a contract. Pryor will be battling A.J. McCarron and Josh Johnson for a spot to backup Andy Dalton. In 2011, the Raiders took a chance to draft Pryor in the supplemental draft, but was later traded to the Seahawks and released following the 2014 season. 4 months ago he was  signed by the Chiefs, but then released a few days ago.  At his time in Oakland, Pryor made an appearance in 15 games with 10 starts, and compiled a 56.3 pass completion percentage; he also had 1,953 passing yards, 9 TD’s, 12 Int’s, and had 627 rushing yards with 3 TD’s.  One can only wonder if Pryor will finally land a roster spot?

Breaking: Former Florida State and Current Tennessee Titans LB Retires

Former Florida State LB and current Tennessee Titans LB Kamerion Wimbley has decided to hang up his cleats for good. The 9yr veteran was drafted by the Cleveland Browns no.13 overall in the 2006 NFL Draft, and had a 2yr stint with the Oakland Raiders, but went on to sign a 5 year $35 Million contract in 2012 with the Titans. Wimbley, 31, ends his career with 322 tackles, 53.5 sacks, 9 forced fumbles, and 2 interceptions (with a 75 yarder being his longest) in 140 games; his rookie season was a breakout season finishing with 11.0 sacks, but started only twice last season in 13 games with only 2 sacks. In a statement, Wimbley thanked his coaches, teams, and everyone that had given him an opportunity to play football; with his retirement, Wimbley plans to spend more time with his family and pursue other things outside of football. With his retirement, this opens the door for other LB’s on the Titans roster to fill the vacant spot he leaves behind.
