Redskins to sign WR Richardson to 5-year pact


The Washington Redskins are expected to sign free-agent WR Paul Richardson to a five-year, $40 million dollar contract, according to reports.

Richardson's contract can not be official until Wednesday, March 14 when the free agency period officially begins.

The contract can not be finalized until the new league year opens on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET. The 2014 second-round pick broke out in the 2016 playoffs and carried his momentum into 2017, catching 44 of 80 targets for 703 yards (8.8 per target) and six touchdowns in 16 games. All were career highs for Richardson, who recorded two touchdowns in his first three seasons.

Assuming Josh Doctson can build on his sophomore campaign, Richardson would be a solid No. 2 option for new Washington quarterback Alex Smith, whom the team acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Richardson hit free agency after the most productive of his four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.
