Report: Redskins expected to sign Paul Richardson to 5-year, $40M contract

The free-agent wide receiver market continues to dry up.

The Washington Redskins are expected to sign former Seattle Seahawks receiver Paul Richardson to a five-year deal worth $40 million, with $20 million guaranteed, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Richardson had temporarily been the top available receiver, following the reported signings of Sammy Watkins and Allen Robinson earlier Tuesday.

Richardson, who'll turn 26 years old in mid-April, was originally drafted by the Seahawks 45th overall in 2014. He enjoyed a career year in 2017, starting 13 of 16 games played and catching 44 of 80 targets for 703 yards and six touchdowns.

He'll join a Redskins' receiving corps that includes Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder.

Joe Thomas pushes for own annual holiday in Cleveland
I’d like to lobby @CityofCleveland to make 7/3 an official holiday where the city government is closed, banks are closed, mandatory day off for all workers. It only make sense to roll into America’s birthday with a little pre-game holiday for all on the 3rd. Retweet if you agree
Gronk angling to play for the '69ers'
I think Rob Gronkowski just crashed my bachelor party in disguise. Not sure if he's going to retire, but said he could be playing for the "69ers" next season. I love my job. I love Gronk. #Patriots
