According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, free agent Paul Richardson could pursue a deal in the range of $7 million annually this offseason.
Per John Clayton of ESPN Seattle, the Seahawks won't go over $5.5 million a year to re-sign Richardson, who set career-highs with 703 receiving yards and six touchdowns this past season. If Richardson walks, the Seahawks could replace him by signing a mid-tier receiver like Brice Butler or Taylor Gabriel. Condotta doesn't expect the team to make a play for Jarvis Landry, who could command up to $13 million annually. Feb 1 - 8:59 AM

Paul Richardson caught 0-of-2 targets in the Seahawks' Week 17 loss to the Cardinals.

It was a quiet end to a long-awaited breakout campaign. The No. 45 overall pick of the 2014 draft averaged a robust 16 yards on his 44 catches, posting 703 total yards. Richardson passed up Tyler Lockett on the depth chart but is now headed to free agency. The Seahawks would surely love to keep him, but already have Amara Darboh in the pipeline as a potential replacement. Turning 26 in April, Richardson will be an interesting case on the open market.

Paul Richardson absorbed two-of-four targets for 21 yards Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 16 win over the Cowboys.

Richardson extended a drive with a key first down late in the fourth quarter. The 10-yard catch was his only target of the second half. Richardson has had a handful of big games for the Seahawks this year, but this wasn’t one of them. The deep threat will look for better results against the Cardinals in Week 17.

Paul Richardson caught 2-of-7 targets for 18 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 loss to the Rams.

Richardson led the team in targets but did nothing with them as Seattle struggled all afternoon on offense. Richardson's big games are wholly impossible to predict. He won't be a reliable fantasy play Week 16 at Dallas.

Paul Richardson caught 3-of-6 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Jaguars.

Nearly all of Richardson's production came on a 61-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter where he got downfield all alone with S Tashaun Gipson, who Richardson easily shook for the final 17 yards into the end zone. The touchdown was Richardson's sixth on the season after catching just two over his previous three seasons in the league. Richardson will be a volatile WR4 option next week against the Rams.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 08:21:00 PM

Paul Richardson caught 2-of-4 targets for eight yards in Week 13 against the Eagles.

It was one of Richardson's worst games. Richardson finished behind only Doug Baldwin in targets, but couldn't get anything going downfield. Richard has a shy-away matchup against Jacksonville in Week 14.

Paul Richardson hauled in 4-of-7 targets for 70 yards in the Seahawks' Week 12 win over the 49ers.

Richardson came out of the gate hot, catching two passes on Seattle's first real drive including a 26-yard grab. He was mostly quiet the rest of the game, but he did pop back up for a 21-yard gain in the fourth quarter, enough to make him Seattle's leading receiver on the day. Richardson now has at least 40 yards in each of his last six games and 15 combined targets the last two. He will be a low-end WR4 next week against the Eagles.

Paul Richardson caught 5-of-8 targets for 56 yards in the Seahawks' Week 11 loss to the Falcons.

It was a decent bounce-back game for Richardson after he was held to 1-43 and 3-41 lines the past two games after a couple monster efforts prior to those. He's so hit or miss as the third option in the passing attack behind Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham. Richardson is a WR3/4 next week at the 49ers.

Paul Richardson caught 1-of-2 targets for 43 yards in the Seahawks' Week 10 win over the Cardinals.

Gutting out a groin injury, Richardson was on a snap count, playing only 33-of-63 snaps (per Pro Football Focus). It was an extremely disappointing night for WR3 desperados, but Richardson now has 11 days to get healthy for Seattle's Week 11 Monday night date with the Falcons.

Paul Richardson (groin) is active for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Thursday that Richardson could be "limited some." He should be treated as a volatile WR3 for fantasy purposes. Inactive for the Seahawks are RB Eddie Lacy, S Earl Thomas, LB Josh Forrest, OG Jordan Roos, OG Luke Joeckel, DE Marcus Smith and DE Quinton Jefferson.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Paul Richardson (questionable, groin) is expected to play Week 10 against the Cardinals, but could be "limited some."

It looks like Richardson will be out there on Thursday night but may not see his normal workload. If that's the case, it could open up looks for Tyler Lockett. Richardson was absent from all three practices this week after injuring his groin in Sunday's loss to Washington.
Thu, Nov 9, 2017 02:21:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects Paul Richardson (groin, questionable) to play Thursday night.

Richardson did not practice all week, but the coach suggests that was a precautionary move. "He just felt some tightness, so we just took care of him during the week," Carroll said. "He should be all right, should be OK." Richardson has been up and down so far this season, but he will be in a good spot against the Cardinals if he suits up.

Paul Richardson (groin) is questionable for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Richardson didn't practice all week, putting his status in doubt. It's a downgrade for Russell Wilson and the pass offense. Tyler Locket and Amara Darboh will see more snaps if Richardson sits. Daily Slant: Richardson may end up seeing more of Tramon Williams coverage than Patrick Peterson while Lockett may not be so lucky. Peterson has posted the best cover snaps per reception rate in the league (31.6), the third-best yards per cover snap (0.5), and an incredible 33% catch rate. Although Williams has allowed more yards per cover snap (1.16), he's posted a 47% catch rate. Doug Baldwin has the best matchup of the group against PFF's 83rd cover corner, Tyrann Mathieu, who's allowed the eighth-most yards per cover snap when lined up inside (1.36) and the seventh-most receptions (23). Baldwin, who’s 12th in yards per route run (1.92), projects as our WR2 this week.

Paul Richardson (groin) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

Richardson wasn't listed on Monday's injury report, so it's a new ailment. It's an ominous development with the Seahawks playing on Thursday night. The Seahawks play all sorts of injury report games, so there's still a good chance Richardson returns to "full" on Wednesday. Fantasy owners need to sit tight.
Tue, Nov 7, 2017 07:30:00 PM

Paul Richardson hauled in 3-of-3 targets for 41 yards in the Seahawks' Week 9 loss to the Texans.

This is a big decline after last week's explosion, but Richardson continued to be efficient, catching all three of his targets. QB Russell Wilson completed only 53 percent of his passes and wasn't at his best which limited Richardson's upside. He is a boom/bust fantasy option going forward.
