Paul Richardson has potential to the No. 2 New Orleans has craved.
The 27-year-old wide receiver was released following a season where a nagging hamstring injury hindered his abilities and limited his games. Richardson played ten games in 2019, hauling in 28 receptions for 245 yards and two touchdowns.
Playing for a team like the Redskins that had inconsistent play at the quarterback position is obviously very difficult as a receiver. Prior to his one year stint in DC, Richardson played for the Seahawks where he was never the number one guy but saw solid reps behind guys like Tyler Lockett, Doug Baldwin, and Ricardo Lockette.
The Saints need help at the wide receiver position and adding a talent like Paul Richardson would help them out tremendously.
The Saints have the league’s best receiver in Michael Thomas but need a reliable number two next to him. Paul Richardson in his career has hauled in 143 receptions for 1,809 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Richardson is bound to have a breakout season in 2020 if he goes to literally any other team with a reliable and consistent starting quarterback, why not give it a go in New Orleans?
