It’s something the Washington Redskins offense has lacked since DeSean Jackson defected to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency in 2017. It’s a quality that maximized Jay Gruden’s offensive output via the passing game in 2015 and 2016. And now, it’s something that the Redskins offense dearly misses.
The Redskins signed former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Paul Richardson in the offseason of 2018, with the intent of implementing him as the team’s new source of this coveted speed. They paid him well enough to do the job: $40 million set over the course of five years, with an average annual value of $8 million, and $15 million of it guaranteed.
