Jets signed DE Jay Richardson, formerly of the Seahawks.

The 28-year-old Richardson was out of football last season. A 6-foot-6, 280-pound defensive end, Richardson will vie for a roster spot at "five technique" in training camp. Richardson has seven career sacks in 55 games.

Seahawks signed DE Jay Richardson, formerly of the Raiders.

Richardson, 26, was a fifth-round pick out of Ohio State in 2007. The Seahawks value size above all else on the defensive line, and Richardson looks great getting off the bus at 6-foot-6, 280. He just can't rush the passer.

Raiders released DE Jay Richardson with an injury settlement.

Richardson never fully recovered from mid-August knee surgery, and may not be able to help anyone soon. When healthy, he can play defensive end and tackle. Richardson has extensive starting experience, mostly at end.

Raiders placed DE Jay Richardson (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The former starter was initially announced as waived, but he'll sit on I.R. until the Raiders release him with a settlement. Richardson made 22 starts between 2007 and 2008. He had three sacks off the bench in '09.

Raiders DE Jay Richardson (knee scope) was spotted walking without a limp on Tuesday and said he expects to be ready for Week 1.

Richardson's may very well be ready for the opener, but we're not sure there will be a roster spot waiting for him.

Raiders DE Jay Richardson will miss the rest of the preseason after undergoing surgery Tuesday on his left knee.

Richardson's knee has been problematic since May OTAs. A former fifth-round pick and onetime starter, Richardson has plummeted down the depth chart after the Raiders' last two drafts. He'd be lucky to make the final 53.

Raiders DE Jay Richardson will see a specialist Monday about his troublesome knee.

The underwhelming pass rusher has been out for the past week. He's been passed by impressive rookie Lamarr Houston on the depth chart anyway.

Raiders DE Jay Richardson is sitting out voluntary practices with a knee injury.

This has gotten Trevor Scott more reps at right end and potentially the starting position. Richardson looks the part at 6'6/280, but his production has not matched his potential. He has just four sacks in his first two seasons.

Jay Richardson is currently working as Oakland's starting right defensive end.

Kalimba Edwards is the nickel rusher. If Richardson holds onto the job, he'd be a nice IDP sleeper in deep leagues, but not a double-digit sack threat.
Wed, Aug 6, 2008 03:59:00 PM

Raiders fifth-round rookie Jay Richardson has taken over as the team's starting right defensive end.

He's replacing Tommy Kelly (torn ACL, injured reserve). Richardson has shown some promise in practice, but it hasn't translated to game day. He'll likely be better against the run than he'll fare as a pass rusher initially.
Sat, Nov 3, 2007 11:20:00 AM

Rookie Jay Richardson is expected to get the start at left defensive end Sunday if Derrick Burgess (calf) sits out.

Burgess is looking iffy at best after missing practice Wednesday. Oakland could also blitz more with Kirk Morrison, Thomas Howard, and Michael Huff.
Wed, Sep 19, 2007 08:53:00 PM

Raiders signed fifth-round DL Jay Richardson to a multi-year contract.

The 6-6/276-pounder was considered an underachiever at Ohio State and has his work cut out to make the team. He could be tried at end or inside. Richardson had 4.5 sacks in his senior year, his only as a college starter.
