Redskins Cut Yet Another Player On Valentine’s Day
The Redskins cut yet another player on Valentine’s Day.
New head coach Ron Rivera is not messing around, it would appear.
On Friday, the team announced that veteran wide receiver Paul Richardson would be joining cornerback Josh Norman on the free agent market.
Richardson signed a five-year, $40 million deal with the Redskins back in 2018. Two years later, he is being shown the door.
The move comes on the heels of Washington also giving Josh Norman the boot after realizing they owed $15 million a year to a cornerback that they had to sit for six games last year.
Rivera, the Redskins’ new head coach, made it abundantly clear when he was hired that he planned to come in with a bang.
Not only did he want to change the roster up for financial and on-the-field issues, he also wanted to fix the team’s chemistry.

Getting rid of Norman will no doubt go a long way in resolving some chemistry problems. Richardson’s departure will address some of the offense’s on-the-field woes.
The NFL Network reported that the Seattle Seahawks were a potential contender to pick Richardson. The team originally drafted him in the second round back in 2014.
Last year, the 27-year-old Richardson recorded 245 yards and two touchdowns on 28 catches.
