The Pittsburgh Steelers waived running back Daryl Richardson on Saturday and on Monday he was claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars
The Steelers announced earlier in the day that Richardson had been signed back to the team’s practice squad, but that news was released premature. The tweet below has now been deleted.
Richardson was waived by the Steelers in order to make room from defensive end Johnny Maxey, who was signed off the team’s 10-man practice squad.
After starting the 2016 regular season on the Steelers 53-man roster, the running back was waived and then signed to the practice squad after starting running back Le’Veon Bell finished serving his three-game suspension.
Richardson was then signed back to the Steelers 53-man roster in Week 10 after running back DeAngelo Williams suffered a knee injury in the week 9 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Richardson only dressed for a handful of games for the Steelers while on their 53-man roster and has two carries for 7 yards in his limited playing time.
