Raiders' Jalen Richard: Facing lots of competition
Richard is part of a deep group at running back, alongside Marshawn Lynch, Doug Martin and DeAndre Washington, Doug Williams of NBC Bay Area reports.
Richard caught on with Oakland as an undrafted rookie in 2016 and has subsequently averaged 5.5 yards on 139 carries and 6.0 yards on 75 targets (56 catches) in 32 games. His efficient per-touch production last season was overshadowed by eight fumbles, though six came on special teams (including four muffs) and another on a desperation lateral. It's safe to say Richard will be removed from the punt return unit, and he may even need to battle for a roster spot, competing with Martin, Washington and undrafted rookie Chris Warren for backup work during training camp. At 5-foot-8, 207 pounds, Richard likely will find himself pigeonholed to a change-of-pace role even if he moves on from Oakland.
