2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Wide Receiver Paul Richardson

SEATTLE, WA - OCTOBER 29: Wide receiver Paul Richardson
SEATTLE, WA - OCTOBER 29: Wide receiver Paul Richardson /

Paul Richardson is coming off of a breakout season in Seattle, and he could be a good addition to the Colts’ receiving corps.

Wide receiver is a position of need for the Colts this offseason. While general manager Chris Ballard had some kind words to say about Chester Rogers in his press conference at the NFL Combine, he did acknowledge that Indianapolis will address that position in free agency and the draft.

Paul Richardson just finished his rookie contract in Seattle, and he will be hitting the open market. He gained 271 yards receiving with a touchdown as a rookie in 2014, missed most of the 2015 season with an injury, and gained 288 yards receiving with a touchdown in 2016.

Richardson stepped up in a big way last season becoming one of Russell Wilson’s favorite targets with 703 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns.

He has a small frame at 6-foot 175 pounds, but he’s shown an incredible ability to make contested catches at that size.

I think Richardson may just be scratching the surface of his talent, and the Colts should give him a hard look if they want to improve their group of wide receivers.
