Draft Scout News
09/02/15 - RB Trent Richardson was waived by the Raiders Tuesday (Sept. 1).
08/31/15 - RB Trent Richardson, who was the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, was released by the Oakland Raiders on Monday, ESPN.com reported. This could be the end for the 25-year-old Richardson, who has not lived up to the promise he showed at Alabama.
08/17/15 - RB Trent Richardson gained 18 yards on five carries and although he missed one gaping hole, had back-to-back carries for six and five yards for a first down.
08/10/15 - RB Trent Richardson passed his physical and was removed from the non-football injury list on Thursday (Aug. 6). He was reportedly battling pneumonia.
Richardson had not practiced since reporting to camp overweight last Friday.
"He came back very close to the weight, which was a pretty ambitious goal to get to," head coach Jack Del Rio said. "He's down in the low 220s. That's what we asked of him. That's where he was. ... He'll have a chance to come out here and show what he's really capable of."
08/10/15 - RB Trent Richardson missed the opening of camp on the non-football illness list, and the Raiders' policy of not disclosing injuries helped spawn speculation that the former No.3 pick was being held out for being overweight.
Richardson dispelled those rumors by disclosing he was out with pneumonia.
"I was nowhere near overweight," Richardson said. "I came in at 222 pounds -- lower than they asked me to come in. When I took the conditioning test, I killed it."
Richardson is running well behind Latavius Murray, a clear leader as the lead back. He began to get practice reps just as Roy Helu Jr. and Michael Dyer began missing practices with undisclosed injuries.
"I'm very driven," Richardson said. "First of all, because I've got kids. Second, I've got to prove myself. Everyone wants to put pressure on me, but pressure is greatness. These people want me to be great."
