Paul Richardson: Cut quickly by Seahawks

Richardson was released by the Seahawks on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The writing was on the wall following David Moore's contract restructuring. The addition of Josh Gordon, who could be reinstated at some point in the near future and the return of Phillip Dorsett (foot) to practice made Richardson expendable. He'll join a host of notable names to immediate enter free agency.

Paul Richardson Biography

Childhood and Highschool

Paul Richardson was born on 4/13/1992 in Los Angeles, California and attended Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, California and Los Alamitos High School in Los Alamitos, California. Off the football field, he was also a star track and basketball player. 

College

Paul Richardson was a talented recruit out of high school and was highly ranked on Scout and other recruiting websites. He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder for college. He played wide receiver and had 156 receptions for 2412 yards. Known for his length and speed, Richardson provided plenty of highlights during his college career. In 2012, he missed the entire season after tearing his ACL. He returned, however, and played well enough to remain a highly sought after draft pick. 

NFL Draft

Richardson was the 13th pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft; the 45th pick overall. At the combine, he ran a 40 time of 4.4 seconds, the 3 Cone Drill in 7.09 seconds, and had a Vertical Jump of 38 inches and a Broad Jump of 124 inches. He was drafted high because of his speed, agility, and catching ability, but he didn't go earlier because he was perhaps too lean. Teams who passed him up noted that he would need to put on muscle before he would be able to contribute on the field in the NFL. 

2014, 2015 NFL Seasons

In 2014, as a rookie, he played 15 games, and caught 29 passes for 271 yards and a single touchdown. In 2014, he signed a 4 year $4,712,835 contract with the Seattle Seahawks, including a $1,747,516 signing bonus, $2,381,736 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $1,178,209. In 2015, he was only on the field for one game. He caught one pass for 40 yards. Unfortunately, he injured his hamstring while he made his only catch and as a result, he didn't see much playing time in 2015. 

2016 NFL Season

In 2016, Paul Richardson returned to the field for 15 games. He had 21 receptions for 288 yards and a touchdown. He had an average of 19.2 yards per catch and a season long reception of 39 yards. He was a contributor to the Seahawks, and his reputation continued to rise in his locker room and in the league. 

Personal Life

Paul Richardson is social inside and outside of the locker room. His twitter handle is @prich10. It's not known whether or not he's married or has a girlfriend. One can only assume if he does, it hasn't shared that information with the public. Regardless of his dating status, he's eager to return for the 2017 football season. He'll continue to be a target for Russell Wilson and the Seahawks as they make another effort to top the NFC Northwest Division. He's just another weapon for the Seahawks.
