06/18/14 - WR Paul Richardson, who was limited through much of the organized team activities due to a sore shoulder, is healthy now, and he was a standout in each of the first two minicamp practices.
Richardson caught a 57-yard touchdown from quarterback Russell Wilson to highlight the offensive effort Wednesday. Richardson said he feels fine now.
"It wasn't a setback at all," he said of his time on the sideline. "I was able to see the game from a different perspective, got a lot of mental reps, and it prepared me to be ready for mandatory minicamp."
06/12/14 - WR Paul Richardson sat out the last week of OTAs after banging his shoulder last week. But it's not considered serious and he should be available for mini-camp. A second-round pick, he was Seattle's first selection in the 2014 draft.
05/12/14 - Seahawks trade to get extra choices...Seattle entered the draft with just six picks, which would have been its fewest since 2006. But trading down twice with its first pick, including Friday's trade, gives the Seahawks eight. The Seahawks traded out of the final pick in the first round. General manager John Schneider said he considered trading down again but Richardson was ultimately too good to pass up. "Last night (Thursday) when we ended we had to have a name ready in New York and it was Paul Richardson's name,'' Schneider said. "So we were really excited to be able to go back again today. He was too rare for us to pass up. I think he had 184 targets and three drops. He's incredibly fast, explosive, can play inside and outside. I'm sure you guys had heard about it already. We're really excited about that. To come back at the end of the round and grab an offensive tackle because there was going to be a run on offensive tackles, and then there was going to be a fairly big drop off there. So we needed to grab one as soon as we could."
The Seahawks hope that Richardson, who caught 83 passes last season at Colorado, can help replace the departed Golden Tate, who signed with the Lions in free agency. Richardson missed the 2012 season with an ACL injury, but the Seahawks believe that he is healthy, and having run a 40 time once in 4.28, has the speed to stretch the field. "His speed is extraordinary,'' said coach Pete Carroll. "He has the terrific hands and a great catching range, he's really got characteristics like the guys that have been successful for us. He's got quickness kind of like Doug Baldwin, he's got speed kind of like Percy Harvin, and he has that catching range kind of like Jermaine Kearse so we just felt really comfortable with his style of play.'' - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Seahawks' picks: Round 2/45 -- Paul Richardson, WR, 6-0, 175, Colorado...Speedy play-maker who could give the team the type of deep threat it has been searching for. Might also factor in as a punt returner. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 87/15. *Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado, 6-0, 175, 4.33, 3...Extraordinarily quick, fluid, finesse athlete who is fun to watch if you are not a cornerback in single coverage. Richardson showed his ability to run hard and get open often again in 2013 after missing 2012 following a torn ACL in the spring. Last year he caught 83 passes for 1,343 yards and 10 touchdowns receiving. Father, Paul, was a wide receiver at UCLA and with several NFL teams. Frankly: Richardson was exceptionally productive despite a lack of complementary talent on his team, getting first downs on 51 of his 83 catches and averaging 47 yards on his 10 touchdown plays last year. Yes, 47 yards, damn near half the field. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
