  • Richardson totaled three solo tackles, a sack, two tackles for loss and a pass defensed in Thursday's 36-28 win over the Steelers. Richardson got consistent penetration into the Steelers' backfield, causing a handful of negative plays. The 31-year-old veteran isn't the same difference-maker he was when he first broke into the league with the Jets, but he's still a serviceable contributor. Richardson needs another half a sack to reach three for the seventh time in nine seasons.

  • The Vikings have signed Richardson to a one-year, $3.6 million deal, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Per the report, the defensive tackle's deal could be worth up to $4.35 million with incentives. The 30-year-old, who logged 64 tackles and 4.5 sacks with the Browns last season, played for the Vikings in 2018 before inking a three-year, $36 million deal with Cleveland in free agency. Richardson was cut loose in April, in a move that freed up $11 million in cap space for the Browns, paving the way for him to bolster Minnesota's interior pass rush.

  • Richardson (neck) is questionable for Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports. Richardson has played in each of the last two games despite this neck injury, so he's on the right track for Sunday's game after logging a trio of limited practices this week. The 30-year-old posted 64 tackles, 4.5 sacks and three pass breakups through 16 games this year, and he's set for a massive role against the division rival.
