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.

Richardson (concussion) missed Saturday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Richardson is competing with Zac Stacy for the role of No. 3 running back, and he actually played ahead of Stacy in last week's game. However, the missed time certainly isn't helping his cause as he tries to earn a roster spot. His situation likely won't be resolved until final cuts are made next week.

Richardson (concussion) did positional drills while wearing a non-contact jersey at Thursday's practice, NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Richardson was the third back to enter the second preseason game, ahead of Zac Stacy, but quickly was forced from the game with the concussion. It would appear that he and Stacy are competing for the third running back role on the team. With the Jets expected to keep fullback Tommy Bohanon, they're likely to only carry three running backs on the regular season roster. Based on his practice participation, he's likely doubtful for Saturday's game against the Giants.

Richardson has been added to the Jets' practice squad, the Star-Ledger reports.

Richardson is thus a Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory or Bilal Powell injury away from potentially rejoining the Jets' backfield mix.
