Seahawks release Paul Richardson just days after signing him

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Paul Richardson’s second stint with the Seattle Seahawks barely lasted a week.

The 2014 second-round pick has been let go by the team on roster cutdown day.

There was, of course, optimism that we’d get to see Richardson healthy and able to contribute to the Seahawks passing attack. The reality check came in when Pete Carroll made these comments after Thursday’s practice.

Longtime decoders of Pete Carroll talk are well aware that this pretty much means “you’re gone.” And for Richardson, who has been injury prone throughout his career and was on injured reserve in his two seasons with the Washington Football Team, he’s indeed off the team.

The Seattle Seahawks’ wide receiver situation beyond DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett is still a bit up in the air but there’s some more clarity. David Moore restructured his contract to remain on the team, while Josh Gordon is back on the team but still facing possible league suspension. All of this news should also assure that Philip Dorsett is safe.
