One of the biggest draft busts in recent memory may have reached the end of the line.
Trent Richardson, the running back selected third overall in the 2012 draft, has been released by the Raiders, according to ESPN.
Richardson had a disappointing rookie season with the Browns after going third overall, and was then traded to the Colts for a first-round pick. A complete disaster in Indianapolis, Richardson was cut this offseason. The Raiders picked him up, but he did not impress in the preseason.
Realistically, it’s hard to see any other team giving Richardson a chance after he was such a dismal failure in all three of his stops. At age 25, this once-promising running back has probably played his last snap in the NFL.
