Richardson totaled 15 yards on 10 carries, and caught one pass for six yards in Pittsburgh's 17-0 loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

This was a definite step backwards for Richardson, who looked much better in the preseason opener against Detroit. Then again, the entire Steeler offense failed to show up, managing just 207 total yards. Fortunately for Richardson, his competition for Pittsburgh's third running back spot on the roster, Fitzgerald Tousaint, looked only slightly better, rushing for 26 yards on eight carrries. Both will get another opportunity to show why they deserve to be behind Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and DeAngelo Williams on the depth chart when they face New Orleans on Friday.

Richardson gained 44 yards on 11 carries and added 16 yards on two catches in Friday's 30-17 preseason loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old tailback built on his impressive training camp performances, with his 44 yards leading all rushers on the night. Richardson has not received a regular-season carry since 2013, his second and final season with the Rams. He's competing with Fitzgerald Touissant for a third-string role behind DeAngelo Williams, with Friday's effort serving as a positive step towards winning that job.

Richardson has looked good in training camp thus far, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the Post-Observer, Richardson "looked fast" during the Steelers' offseason workouts, with the 26-year-old back -- who did not record a regular season carry in 2015, making a run at the team's No. 3 running back job. His main competition for the assignment is Fitzgerald Toussaint, with the player who lands the gig of note, given that Pittsburgh's top back Le'Veon Bell reportedly faces a four-game suspension to start the season.

Richardson has signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Richardson thus joins the team's backup RB depth corps behind Le'Veon Bell, with DeAngelo Williams and Fitzgerald Toussaint also under contract with the team for the 2016 season.

Richardson was released by the Browns on Tuesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Richardson spent a couple of weeks with the team to help with depth, but he still hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2013. A former seventh-round draft pick, he shouldn't have much trouble finding a team that will let him compete for a back-end roster spot in training camp next season.

Richardson signed with the Browns on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

A seventh-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Richardson hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since the end of 2013. With Glenn Winston (concussion) looking shaky for Week 15, Richardson could serve as the No. 3 running back behind Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson. It's not a role that would necessarily include any offensive snaps or touches.

Richardson has been signed to the Texans' practice squad, the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Arian Foster's Week 3 status has yet to be solidified, the addition of Richardson is probably more tied to the fact that fellow RB Jonathan Grimes missed practice Wednesday.

Richardson was released by the Jets on Saturday, Seth Walder of the NY Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Zac Stacy, another former Ram, beat out Richardson for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart. Chris Ivory is set to lead the New York backfield, with Bilal Powell likely getting a good portion of the passing-down work. Richardson, meanwhile, may have to wait until next preseason to get another shot at making an NFL roster.

Richardson (concussion) gained 72 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries, adding one reception (one target) for 11 yards, in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Richardson got one last chance to compete for a roster spot against Zac Stacy, who finished with 20 carries for 68 yards, adding two receptions (two targets) for 30 yards and a touchdown. Stacy is the favorite to lock down the job and seemingly did nothing to hurt his chances. One of the two, likely Richardson, will be released within the next few days.
