Jets claim Daryl Richardson off waivers

The Jets have claimed running back Daryl Richardson off waivers (Yates, May 16).

Richardson was waived by the Rams on Thursday.

Richardson, 24, averaged 4.8 yards per carry for the Rams in 2012, but that number fell to 3.1 in 2013 – something Richardson attributed in part to a toe injury he suffered early in the season.

I've always liked this guy. He was a 7th rounder, but I think he can at least push Powell to be better.

If Goodson avoids jail and is healthy he'll make the team

Goodson is a good receiver out of the backfield with elite speed for a RB. The guy has the potential to score every time he catches a check down pass or a screen

I think it is highly unlikely the Jets cut Goodson if his legal issues get resolved

bye bye Alex Green and Mike Goodson


Richardson (if healthy) may push Powell but I like a Chris Johnson/Ivory/Powell/Richarsdon group at RB

I like this signing a lot.  Does this signify the end of Goodson?

@Hoz I'd like to sign Reed just thru vet Camp OTA's and preseason to work with Antonio Allen because last year he came mid season and basically took his job.

@bradysucks  

Agree with brady, but wonder if the front office already knows something that has convinced them Goodson isn't going to beat the rap.

@bradysucks  Yes, but you are not taking into consideration that he is coming off a torn ACL fwiw

Why is this a great signing?

@Endzoneview  keep all the bodies for camp and preseason.  Someone needs those carries against the Eagles.  In the end unless there is injury don't think Richardson, Green or Goodson make it.

@Paul Samuels @nesboogie


Hilton 5'10 183lbs


Saunders 5'9" and said he is up to 175 lbs 


Pretty close if Saunders has gained the weight.

@a57se @Paul Samuels  He can still challenge for a roster spot. Either way, Ivory, CJ, Powell and Richardson/Goodson and T-Bo is way better on paper than Greene, LT and Conner/T-Rich from a few years ago. Ground and Pound is a go.

@a57se @Hoz  Yes sir he was the rams starting rb until he sufferd a toe injury, he will be a great #3 good bye powell

@jdawggg  I agree; if the Jets are gonna carry Bohannon(or maybe Chad Young?!) I doubt there will be a 5th RB.

@Hoz @a57seHow is this not a great signing?  Instant upgrade over Bilal Powell. Faster, Better runner, Better hands. Tape dont lie

@Endzoneview That's fair. Actually Richardson rushed for 4.8 ypc two seasons ago, so he does have some flash. Not a bad RB4 or even RB3

@jetlife @jdawggg@Endzoneviewwell, they'll keep 4 (plus Bohanon at FB) so Chris Johnson/Ivory/Powell and one of Richardson/Green/Goodson.  Special teams value will probably play a large role. Goodson, I assume, is already on the outside looking in so it's Rich/Green for that last roster spot
