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.

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.

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.

ESPN Raiders reporter Bill Williamson says Trent Richardson is on the roster bubble.

Despite getting $600,000 guaranteed in the two-year deal he signed in March, Richardson appears to be in real danger of losing his job to undrafted rookie Michael Dyer. Richardson has just 23 yards on 10 preseason carries.

Trent Richardson rushed five times for five yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings.

T-Rich has just 23 yards on 10 preseason carries (2.3 YPC). His roster odds are hanging on for dear life.

Trent Richardson is listed as the No. 2 running back on the Raiders' first unofficial depth chart.

It's a generous listing for a player who's barely practiced. Latavius Murray is No. 1, with Roy Helu checking in at No. 3. Helu's spot is irrelevant, as he'll be the Raiders' third-down back. Murray is essentially locked in as the starter. T-Rich is fighting for a roster spot.

The Raiders are expected to give Trent Richardson "lots of work" in the preseason.

Recovered from a bout of "pneumonia," Richardson resumed practicing this past week and should be all systems go moving forward. He does look noticeably skinnier this year, based on photos from practice we've seen. The Raiders are treating Latavius Murray as a bellcow, and Roy Helu is currently ailing. Richardson figures to end up leading Oakland in preseason rushing attempts.

Trent Richardson says he missed the first week of practice because he had pneumonia.

Coach Jack Del Rio implied Richardson's absence was weight related. It was likely a mixture of both. Back to good health and apparently on weight, Richardson is fighting for a spot on the Raiders' 53-man roster.

Raiders activated RB Trent Richardson from the active/NFI list.

T-Rich had been sidelined since reporting to camp overweight last Friday. Now his drive for a roster spot can begin. Richardson is not a fantasy consideration.
Thu, Aug 6, 2015 01:26:00 PM

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio confirmed Trent Richardson is on the active/NFI list and not practicing because he reported overweight.

Or, at least over the weight threshold the Raiders set for T-Rich before training camp. "Trent is here," Del Rio said. "He came back very close to the weight, which was a pretty ambitious goal to get to. He’s down in the low 220s. That’s what we asked of him. That’s where he was." Richardson has missed the first three days of camp. He's seen as 50-50 to make the roster.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was told Trent Richardson has a "50 percent" chance of making the Raiders' 53-man roster.

T-Rich opened training camp on the active/NFI list, suggesting he failed his conditioning test. Latavius Murray and Roy Helu are locks for the 53, while FB Marcel Reece can handle the load in a pinch. Richardson may be competing directly with UDFA Michael Dyer for a roster spot. Until T-Rich gets back on the practice field, his odds are going to appear even less than 50:50.

Raiders placed RB Trent Richardson on the active/NFI list.

No explanation has been given yet, but we should get details soon. It seems likely Richardson failed to pass his conditioning test. The San Francisco Chronicle recently passed along "whispers" that the Raiders' flyer on T-Rich is "not going so well." Richardson appears to be squarely on the roster bubble.

The San Francisco Chronicle passes along "whispers" that the Raiders' reclamation flyer on Trent Richardson is "not going so well."

Beat writer Vic Tafur doesn't elaborate beyond that. In early July, OL coach Mike Tice stated T-Rich shed weight this offseason, helping some of his old quickness to return. More-objective observers of Raiders practice must not have seen much from Richardson in the way of positives. Owed only $600,000 in guaranteed money on his two-year, $3.85 million deal, Richardson would be easy to cut.

According to Raiders OL coach Mike Tice, Trent Richardson shed weight this offseason, which helped some of his quickness to return.

We've been pining for T-Rich to shed weight for years. It sounds like he's finally done so, and according to Tice it showed during the offseason program. "I thought the young man out of Alabama came on," said Tice. "He lost some weight, his quickness came around." Richardson is battling Roy Helu and Latavius Murray for snaps in Oakland's backfield. In all likelihood, Murray will be the Week 1 starter with Helu playing on passing downs.
