Trent Richardson finds a home in Oakland-- Tue Mar 17 1:45 pm --
The Oakland Raiders will give Trent Richardson his third chance to make it in the NFL, as the team announced his signing Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed, but the former Alabama star running back will compete with Latavius Murray to be the Raiders' starting running back.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Richardson will battle for playing time with Murray and newly signed Roy Helu. It would be a shock if Richardson is anything more than a backup for Murray with Helu filling the third-down pass-catching role. For what it's worth Richardson is just 24 years old but sports a 3.3 yards per carry average for his career.
Raiders OC to feature Latavius Murray-- Wed Jan 21 8:00 am --
FF Today's Take:With defensive minded Jack Del Rio serving as head coach, Musgrave will be able to implement his plan for Murray who was buried behind Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew for most of 2014. Musgrave was the Eagles QB coach last season and worked with Del Rio in Jacksonville back in 2003. Murray will be on the RB2 radar in 2015.
