OAKLAND, Calif. (UPI) — It has been a long time since Trent Richardson sat comfortably atop an NFL depth chart. Now the competition for carries comes in Oakland, where Richardson has a 50 percent shot to make the Raiders’ roster, according to Ian Rapoport.

Richardson, 25, was selected No. 3 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. Since that year, Richardson has also suited up for the Indianapolis Colts.

In 2013, the Browns traded Richardson for the Colts’ 2014 first round pick, the No. 26 overall selection.

In three NFL seasons, Richardson has 2,032 yards and 17 touchdowns on 614 carries.

Richardson is currently on the non-football-illness list and not practicing, because he reported to training camp overweight.
