Former Washington receiver Paul Richardson returns to Seattle

Paul Richardson entered the 2019 season as one of Washington's starting wide receivers, but after being released in February, he is returning to his roots with the Seahawks.

Seattle drafted Richardson in 2014, and he spent four seasons there before agreeing to a deal with Washington prior to the 2018 season. In two years in the Burgundy and Gold, Richardson played in 17 games (starting 10) and reeled in 48 catches for 507 yards and four touchdowns.

Richardson struggled to stay healthy in Washington after only missing one game total in his final two seasons in Seattle. The best year of his career came in 2017 with the Seahawks, when he caught 44 passes for 703 yards and six scores.

Washington felt comfortable moving on from Richardson due to his injuries and the emergence of star Terry McLaurin. Now, he's back in with the organization that drafted him.
