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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
