Rams release former starting RB Richardson
ESPN 64+ SHARES
The St. Louis Rams released running back Daryl Richardson on Thursday, thinning out their crowded backfield.
He won the starting job as Jackson's replacement this past training camp but suffered a toe injury against Arizona in the opener and never was able to get back on track.
He finished with 215 yards and an average of 3.1 yards per attempt while playing in just eight games.
Richardson was surpassed on the depth chart by Zac Stacy who is currently listed as the starter, and the Rams also drafted Tre Mason in the fourth round to add to their backfield depth.
He was scheduled to make $581,474, and his release will save the Rams $558,526 in cap space.
