Paul Richardson has done the impossible once again, this time in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks. On 4th-and-goal from the 2-yard-line of their Wild Card playoff game, Russell Wilson rolled right and threw to Richardson and he took care of the rest.
Later on in the game, Richardson did it again.
Richardson played three seasons for Colorado, set a bunch of records, made the Buffs worth watching while they wallowed in dismay. In 33 games, Richardson had 156 catches, 2,412 receiving yards and 21 receiving touchdowns. In his junior year he had 83 catches, 1,343 yards and 10 touchdowns and was named to the First Team All-Pac-12. At Colorado, Richardson was a human highlight reel.
With otherworldly speed and a great pair of hands, Richardson was drafted 45th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. Unfortunately, Richardson tore his ACL in his rookie season and has had to wait until this season to make a big impact on the Seahawks. Hopefully Richardson’s incredible performance will continue.
