Packers matched the Raiders' one-year, $2.55 million offer sheet to S Sean Richardson.
Richardson, a 2012 UDFA, has started zero career games and been mere depth for the Packers for the last three seasons. But the Packers like to keep their own (and value his sizable special teams contributions), and they've blocked the Raiders from signing a guy they clearly wanted. So Richardson is back in Green Bay as a backup to Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix once again. Micah Hyde is also in the picture as the No. 3 safety. Apr 13 - 12:00 PM

The Green Bay Press-Gazette doesn't expect the Packers to match Oakland's one-year, $2.55 million offer for S Sean Richardson.

Richardson was limited to special teams last season, playing only 135 defensive snaps. With Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix locked in as starters, he wouldn't return as more than a sub-package option. The Packers could have given Richardson a second-round tender if they didn't want to lose him. Micah Hyde is Green Bay's top backup at safety.

Packers restricted free agent CB Sean Richardson's player rep confirms his offer sheet with the Raiders is for one year and $2.55 million.

It's a massive chunk of change for a 25-year-old safety with zero starting experience and a severe back injury to his name. Richardson played just 135 snaps on defense for the Packers last season. Oakland is offering him more than many established starters receive. The Raiders have the cap space — and then some — but they'd be setting a bad precedent for themselves by tossing that kind of money at a player of Richardson's ilk.

Packers restricted free agent CB Sean Richardson has signed an offer sheet with the Raiders.

NFL.com reports it's a one-year, $2.55 million deal. If true, it's a gross overpay. The Packers tendered Richardson at the lowest level. That means they have the right of first refusal, but will receive no compensation if they decide not to match Oakland's offer. Recovered from spinal-fusion surgery, Richardson appeared in all 16 games last season, but played a modest 135 snaps on defense. He'll likely be allowed to walk by the Pack.
Apr 7 - 4:54 PM

ESPN Packers blogger Rob Demovsky expects S Sean Richardson to see "even more playing time" this week and down the stretch.

We haven't had an update on Richardson since October, when it was revealed that he could continue his playing career after undergoing fusion surgery on his neck late last season. Richardson has appeared in the past two games, playing 22 snaps. The Packers are looking for a safety to play next to Morgan Burnett. M.D. Jennings and Chris Banjo have been liabilities on the back end.

Richardson had surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck in January. The Green Bay team doctor recently cleared him, as did five other neck specialists. Richardson is a reserve safety and special teams player.

Packers S Sean Richardson (neck) said he's close to 100 percent, and expects to be ready for training camp.

An undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt last year, Richardson had surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck in January. He says he's crossed three major hurdles, but he has two more tests to pass with the doctors. It's worth mentioning that Packers team docs wouldn't clear S Nick Collins after a similar procedure in 2011. Richardson expects to be back "soon."

A source tells the Press-Gazette that S Sean Richardson (neck) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Richardson recently underwent surgery to repair a herniated cervical disc, but it bears mentioning the team's doctors wouldn't clear S Nick Collins after he had a similar procedure. Richardson missed the last five games of last season with the injury after making the team out of training camp. He'll likely battle S Jerron McMillian for reps in camp this summer.

Packers S Sean Richardson (injured reserve) will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair a herniated cervical disk in his back.

Undrafted out of Vanderbilt, Richardson made the team out of training camp thanks to strong special teams play. He hopes to be fully recovered for the start of this year's camp in late July.
