by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards signed a contract with the Ravens on Thursday.

Richards was released by the Patriots on Tuesday. The 2015 second-round pick figures to contribute on special teams with the Ravens.

Jordan Richards: Let go by Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards was released by the Patriots on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Richards joined the Patriots in early October and exclusively played special teams in his three games with the team. The team signed Justin Bethel to take his place on the 53-man roster, and he's likely to fill a similar role.

Patriots' Jordan Richards: Back with New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards plans to sign with the Patriots on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Richards spent his first three NFL seasons in New England before winding up in Atlanta for the 2018 season. After one year with the Falcons, the veteran safety signed with the Raiders but got released shortly after. Now expected to rejoin the Patriots, Richards should provide New England's defensive backfield with added depth but likely won't see much playing time unless injuries strike the secondary.

Raiders' Jordan Richards: Signs with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards inked a deal with the Raiders on Friday.

Richards spent three seasons with the Patriots before being traded to the Falcons ahead of the 2018 season. He started 12 games and appeared in 15 in Atlanta, while recording a career-high 37 (15 solo) tackles and three passes defended in the process. He will now look to earn a regular role in the Raiders' secondary.

Falcons' Jordan Richards: Logs 12 starts in fourth pro season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards accounted for 39 tackles and three pass deflections for the Falcons in 2018.

Richards stepped in for an Atlanta secondary that was ravaged by injuries, filling a vital role after starting safeties Keanu Neal (knee) and Ricardo Allen (Achilles) went down early in the year. A former second-round New England pick who was traded to Atlanta within a week of the season opener, Richards nearly doubled his previous career high by picking up 12 starts for a Falcons defense that ranked 27th against the pass in 2018. Richards' rookie contract expires this winter, leaving the front office with a decision to make on a player who ranked as the NFL's 64th-best safety this season, according to Pro Football Focus.

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.

Patriots' Jordan Richards: Ready for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards (knee) will be active for Saturday's game against the Jets.

Richards will likely see reps on special teams with usual starting safeties Patrick Chung and Devin McCourty both healthy.

Patriots' Jordan Richards: Out for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards (knee) is out for Week 15.

Richards has now missed the Patriots' last three games. With Richards out, the Patriots lose some depth in their defensive backfield.

Patriots' Jordan Richards: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards (knee) was limited during Wednesday's practice.

Richards has missed back-to-back games due to what appears to be a minor knee injury, but he could be in line to return Sunday against the Broncos if he's eventually able to log a full practice by week's end.

Patriots' Jordan Richards: Inactive Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards (knee) is inactive Monday night against the Ravens.

Richards will now miss his second game in a row due to a bothersome knee injury. The impact of his absence likely won't extend beyond special teams play, however.

Patriots' Jordan Richards: Questionable to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards (knee) is questionable to play Monday night against Baltimore.

While Richards was unable to play last week because of an injured knee, he managed to participate in every practice this week -- albeit in a limited fashion. However, even if he's ultimately ruled out, his absence will likely have a minimal impact on the outcome of the game.

December 8, 2016 07:15 PM
Patriots' Jordan Richards: No practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards (knee) did not practice Thursday.

Richards continues to miss time due to a knee injury as he was ruled out for Sunday's win over the Rams. Look for more updates to come over the weekend, with Duron Harmon likely to see an expanded role should Richards miss Monday night's matchup with the Ravens.

Patriots' Jordan Richards: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richards (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Richards is merely a depth option at safety for the Patriots, so his absence figures to only effect the special teams unit if anything. His next chance to return will come in Week 14 against the Ravens.
