Chargers re-signed KR/WR Richard Goodman to a one-year, $630,000 contract.

Not an offensive threat, 26-year-old Goodman is a core special teamer in San Diego. He runs downfield on punt and kickoff coverage, and Goodman's 27.6 kick return average over the past two seasons is the league's fourth-best mark.

Chargers placed KR/WR Richard Goodman on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

Goodman pulled up lame on the opening kickoff of Sunday's loss. A backup slot receiver, he finishes 2012 with zero catches. A three-year veteran, Goodman is headed for restricted free agency in the offseason.

Chargers KR/WR Richard Goodman (hamstring) is expected to be out "a while."

With Eddie Royal sidelined, Goodman was poised to act as the Chargers' slot receiver in Week 8. Instead, he severely pulled his hamstring on the opening kickoff.

Chargers KR Richard Goodman left Sunday's game against the Browns in the first quarter with a hamstring injury.

Goodman went down on the opening kickoff. He was able to walk off under his own power, but has already been ruled out for the day.

Chargers KR Richard Goodman sustained a concussion in the Chargers' Week 1 win over the Raiders.

Goodman picked up 76 yards on three kickoff returns before leaving. He ranked fourth in the league in kickoff return average last season, behind only Joe McKnight, Randall Cobb and Ted Ginn.

Chargers tendered exclusive rights free agent WR/KR Richard Goodman and LS Mike Windt.

Both will receive $540,000 salaries in 2012 and be eligible for restricted free agency in 2013. Goodman, essentially a younger version of Kassim Osgood, didn't catch a pass last season but averaged a robust 27.5 yards per kick return, including a 105-yard touchdown. He also made five special teams tackles.
Mon, Mar 12, 2012 06:47:00 PM

Chargers signed WR Richard Goodman to a reserve/future contract.

Goodman isn't much of a receiver prospect, but did record five special teams tackles in three appearances last season. He'll try to stick as a gunner.

Chargers waived WR Richard Goodman to make room for SS Steve Gregory (suspension).

Goodman served primarily on special teams, and wasn't ever on the fantasy radar. Gregory was San Diego's leading tackler when he went on his four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on PEDs in Week 5, and will provide an upgrade in the Bolts' secondary over Paul Oliver.

Chargers WR Richard Goodman (fingers) returned to practice Thursday.

Goodman dislocated his right ring finger and split the webbing between fingers in Wednesday's practice. He's expected to play Sunday, but only in a special teams role. Patrick Crayton and Buster Davis will do the heavy lifting at wide receiver.

Chargers WR Richard Goodman dislocated his right ring finger and split the webbing between fingers in practice Wednesday.

It's not clear if this might keep him out of Week 8. The Chargers are really banged up at receiver, though they're expected to get Legedu Naanee back. Goodman caught his first career pass in Week 7. He proceeded to place the ball on the ground after getting a knee down, but without a defender downing him as if he were back at Florida Sate. The Patriots easily recovered the loose ball.
Thu, Oct 28, 2010 08:27:00 AM

Chargers signed WR Richard Goodman off their practice squad.

Goodman will join LT Marcus McNeill on the active roster, replacing S C.J. Spillman and CB Fred Bennett, both of whom were cut on Monday. Goodman, a speedster, is expected to see time on special teams.
