Dennis Boyev, the agent of former Chiefs cornerback Mike Richardson, announced that Richardson has signed with the Indianapolis Colts. Richardson should help the Colts on special teams.
The Colts let up a 99 yard kick return touchdown by Jacoby Ford yesterday, and the team might be looking to upgrade their special teams units. Richardson recorded 20 special teams tackles in his career.
Richardson played 11 games with the Chiefs in 2009 with one start, and 10 games with the Patriots in 2008.
According to Scout.com
Javarris James could be released to make room for Richardson, or another player (Mike Hart) could be placed on IR.
Pos: Nice-sized corner who is best facing the action. Fluid
transitioning with opponents, reads the receivers? eyes and gets his head back
around to make a play on the ball. Alert and works well with safeties. Possesses
a closing burst of speed.
Neg: Struggles in man
situations with his back to the ball, and will lose assignments altogether.
Tends to side-shuffle rather than backpedal
