ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Ravens waived Trent Richardson on Tuesday because they needed to sign a receiver for practice.
According to Werder, the Ravens "believe [Richardson] is talented" and could still bring him back. By this logic, it would suggest Richardson is the 91st man on the 90-man roster. That's all fine and dandy for the summer, but would indicate Richardson has no shot at making Baltimore's 53-man team. Aug 3 - 9:12 AM

Ravens waived RB Trent Richardson.

Signed in late April, T-Rich proceeded to barely practice thanks to a cavalcade of injuries. Now 26, Richardson hasn't appeared in a game since the 2014 postseason (where he didn't touch the ball). Richardson was supposedly in better shape this offseason, but if he's not at the end of the line, he's just in front of it.
Aug 2 - 2:58 PM

Ravens placed RB Trent Richardson (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Richardson is recovering from a June scope. The Ravens could stash him on reserve/PUP to open the season. Richardson is behind Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Kenneth Dixon, and Terrance West on the depth chart.
Jul 23 - 4:10 PM

Trent Richardson is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his knee.

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports it's a pre-existing condition, and that T-Rich is going to miss "some time." Richardson is now questionable for training camp, and probably doomed in his quest to make the Ravens' 53-man roster. It just hasn't been meant to be with the No. 3 overall pick of the 2012 draft, not to say that many of Richardson's problems haven't been of his own making.
Jun 16 - 6:32 PM

Trent Richardson has been sitting out OTAs with a hamstring injury.

It's probably not a serious issue, but any missed time undermines Richardson's long-shot 53-man roster bid. Richardson could be an early camp cut if he's not 100 percent.
May 26 - 2:52 PM

Trent Richardson has shed 22 pounds this offseason and is down to 218.

The Ravens' website has before and after pictures of Richardson, and he's noticeably more cut after working out all offseason with trainer and ex-Alabama teammate Mike McCoy. At 218, Richardson is lighter than his listed playing weight in college. The former No. 3 overall pick ballooned to 240 over the winter. Richardson has a huge opportunity in a congested Ravens backfield.
Apr 25 - 9:44 AM

Ravens signed RB Trent Richardson.

Richardson has had an "unofficial agreement" in place with Baltimore since early March, but the team wanted him to hit certain weight goals before making the deal official. The Ravens were apparently happy with what they saw after working him out Monday morning, and he signed the deal. The former No. 3 overall pick faces an uphill climb to crack a deep running back group.

Free agent Trent Richardson admits he "got lazy" early in his NFL career, and also called friends and family constantly asking him for money "mentally exhausting."

Although there are narratives that Richardson failed due to poor vision, or because he's an "Alabama running back," T-Rich has been a bust due primarily to personal reasons. "It's very easy to get lazy in the NFL — not having everything scheduled and not having everything like at Alabama where it was so structured," Richardson said. "In the NFL, everything's on your own." Richardson also said he bought cars for friends and family and "somehow got stuck with paying for five funerals that were each at least $12,000." T-Rich also revealed that he financed week-long trips for people to places like Disney World, "And people still had the nerve to complain about the trip." Richardson said he's cut out the freeloaders and has resumed working hard. He has a deal in place with the Ravens that will become official once Richardson reaches certain "physical benchmarks." Richardson weighed 238 pounds at his February Ravens visit.
Mar 25 - 1:55 PM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team has an "unofficial agreement" with free agent RB Trent Richardson.

Richardson had reportedly been signed in February, but the Ravens are waiting until the former No. 3 overall pick gets in better shape to make the deal official. Richardson struggled with his conditioning before bombing out with the Raiders last year. It is unlikely he makes the final roster in Baltimore even if he signs.
Mar 22 - 9:44 AM

Free agent RB Trent Richardson visited the Ravens on Wednesday but left without signing a contract.

The Ravens could still sign Richardson at a later date but for now, he remains a free agent. Richardson went to training camp with Oakland last summer but couldn't crack the 53-man roster. The former No. 3 overall pick had a promising rookie season in 2012 but it's been downhill since then.

Mar 4 - 3:22 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports there's "nothing imminent" between the Ravens and free agent Trent Richardson.

There was a report last month that Richardson had signed with the Ravens, but multiple reporters since have squashed that story. Zrebiec says T-Rich could still end up in Baltimore, but the team has "other immediate matters to deal with." Frankly, T-Rich's agent should be actively hunting for a better landing spot. The Ravens have Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrance West, and Terrence Magee rostered at tailback currently.
Mar 2 - 5:02 PM

Free agent RB Trent Richardson worked out for the Broncos on Tuesday.

However, NBC Denver reports the workout was for "future considerations only." As in, a reserve/future contract after the season is over. It's the first we've heard of T-Rich since he worked out for the Bills in early October. T-Rich's NFL future is dismal after he failed to even make it to final cuts with the Raiders last summer.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 02:16:00 PM

Free agent RB Trent Richardson is working out for the Bills on Tuesday.

The Bills are dealing with injuries to both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (concussion). Richardson was predictably terrible for the Raiders this preseason, but the Bills are desperate. Richardson would play behind Boobie Dixon and probably even Cierre Wood even if he signs. Buffalo are also brining in Boom Herron and Alfonso Smith.

Raiders waived RB Trent Richardson.

Oakland will eat the $600,000 it guaranteed Richardson back in March. We figured the Colts' release of Richardson would serve as a swift kick in the pants for the former No. 3 overall pick, but he ended up reporting to Raiders camp overweight and didn't impress anyone in the organization this preseason, rushing for 42 scoreless yards on 15 carries (2.8 YPC) and breaking one measly tackle. Richardson is running out of chances, but we expect him to get one more.
Mon, Aug 31, 2015 06:43:00 PM

Trent Richardson managed 19 yards on five carries in the Raiders' third preseason game, adding three catches for five yards.

After Richardson's night was done, the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur guessed T-Rich has toted the rock for his final time as a Raider. Through three preseason contests, Richardson has 42 yards on 15 carries (2.80 YPC). Taiwan Jones, Roy Helu, and Marcel Reece all look like better options to back up Latavius Murray. T-Rich's one-year deal contains a $600,000 guarantee.
