Falcons' Jordan Richards: Leads team in tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards posted a career-high seven tackles, but the Falcons fell to 1-4 with a 41-17 road loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. With the team's two starting safeties on injured reserve, Atlanta was forced to call upon an experienced defensive back in Richards, who has started in just seven of 45 career appearances. The fourth-year man demonstrated a nose for the football by collecting seven tackles, but Ben Roethlisberger generated his second-highest passer rating of the season (112.7) while completing a healthy 65.5 percent of his attempts for 250 yards and three touchdowns. Atlanta's secondary has been torched for 330 passing yards and three touchdowns per game since Week 2.

Falcons' Jordan Richards: To become enforcer in run game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday that Richards is a candidate to become the Falcons' primary in-the-box safety with Keanu Neal (knee) on injured reserve, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

It's nearly impossible to replace a Pro Bowl-caliber safety midseason, but that is exactly what the Falcons aim to do over the remainder of this so-far injury-riddled campaign. Defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel will blend the abilities of remaining safeties on the depth chart to keep opposing offenses in check. He'll look to mix and match his healthy players to take advantage of the run enforcement that Richards offers, Damontae Kazee's propensity to generate turnovers, as well as Ricardo Allen's skills in pass coverage.

Patriots' Jordan Richards: Traded to Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots are trading Richards to the Falcons, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

A 2015 second-round pick, Richards has just seven NFL starts to his name and seemed to be on the roster bubble this preseason. He'll likely get most of his playing time on special teams in Atlanta.
