Ravens signed TE Richard Gordon.
Gordon will take the roster spot of suspended TE Nick Boyle. Baltimore also promoted TE Konrad Reuland from the practice squad and cut CB Cassius Vaughn.

Chiefs re-signed TE Richard Gordon.

A blocking tight end, Gordon has appeared in four games the last two seasons. He'll be Kansas City's No. 3 tight end behind Travis Kelce and Demetrius Harris if he makes the final roster.

Chiefs signed TE Richard Gordon.

TE Phillip Supernaw has been waived in a corresponding roster move. Gordon will work on special teams and as a reserve blocker if he's active on Sundays.

Chiefs re-signed TE Richard Gordon to a one-year, $645,000 contract.

Gordon had been scheduled for restricted free agency, but the Chiefs were never going to tender him because doing so would've cost at least $1.389 million. So Gordon will return to compete for a roster spot at the NFL's minimum salary. A sort of tweener tight end/fullback, Gordon turns 27 in June. The former Raiders sixth-round pick has four receptions across 29 career games.

Chiefs signed TE Richard Gordon.

It's a sign Anthony Fasano (concussion, knee) is not expected back in time for Sunday's game against the Colts. TE Dominique Jones was placed on the NFI list Tuesday.

Steelers signed TE Richard Gordon.

Gordon will take the place of David Johnson, who landed on injured reserve with a wrist injury Tuesday. The 2011 sixth-round pick of the Raiders is nothing more than a No. 3 or 4 tight end.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 11:00:00 AM

Raiders waived or released TE Richard Gordon, S Reggie Smith, DL Ryan Baker, LB Billy Boyko, CB Chance Casey, RB Deonte Williams, OG Jason Foster, WR Greg Jenkins, TE Brian Leonhardt, OG Lamar Mady, K Justin Medlock, S Shelton Johnson, and DT Kurt Taufa'asau.

Who? Gordon was in the mix for the starting tight end job, but that was only because the Raiders have so little talent. After trimming the roster to 53, the Raiders have decided to keep four quarterbacks and two punters. Good luck.

Raiders OC Greg Olson says the team is trying to decide between Richard Gordon and Jeron Mastrud to be its starting tight end.

Giggle. With David Ausberry (shoulder) out indefinitely, the Raiders will resort to starting a player who likely wouldn't make 31 other rosters. "Richard Gordon and Jeron Mastrud, they’re in the battle for the No. 1 spot," said Olson. "We like the emergence of our young tight ends (Mychal Rivera, Nick Kasa), but we’ll really take a good hard look at Richard Gordon and Jeron Mastrud this week."

Raiders backup FB/TE Richard Gordon suffered a broken hand against the Patriots in Week 4.

Gordon played through the injury with Marcel Reece out last week, but he's not practicing this week. Reece remains sidelined as well, so the Raiders are reviewing their options. Michael Bush could move to a lead-blocking role, or Manase Tonga could be activated from the practice squad.

Raiders agreed to terms with sixth-round TE Richard Gordon on a four-year deal.

Gordon will fall in line behind Zach Miller (once he's re-signed) and Brandon Myers. There's not much upside here despite Gordon's 6'3/267 frame.
Thu, Jul 28, 2011 01:29:00 PM

Raiders selected Miami TE Richard Gordon with the No. 181 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Gordon possesses great size at 6-foot-3, 267 pounds, but was known as an under-achiever at Miami. He has decent speed and is a capable blocker, but his ceiling is probably that of a third tight end.
