Richardson reported to Mobile this past weekend and will play on the Under Armour Senior Bowl's South squad, which will be coached by San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan and his staff.
The players will have one practice per day during Senior Bowl Week, January 21-25, capped off by the 59th annual Under Armour Senior Bowl game on Saturday, January 26. Kickoff is set for 3:00 p.m. in Mobile's Ladd-Peebles Stadium and the contest will be nationally-televised by the NFL Network.
Over 575 former Senior Bowl players are currently active in the NFL, and the 2008 NFL Pro Bowl rosters features 25 former Senior Bowl players. A total of 90 players from the 2007 Under Armour Senior Bowl were selected in the 2007 NFL Draft, including 12 first-round picks.
The North squad will be coached by Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin and his staff.
Last year, the Senior Bowl produced 12 first-round picks in the NFL Draft, 90 total selections and a top five choice for the seventh consecutive year. 2007 Senior Bowl participant Patrick Willis was named the 2007 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press and is one of 25 former Senior Bowl participants to be named to the 2008 Pro Bowl.
Over 575 former Senior Bowl players were on active rosters in the NFL in 2007, that group included the NFL's leading rusher, LaDainian Tomlinson of the Chargers, its leading receiver in Reggie Wayne of the Colts, its leading tackler in rookie Willis of the 49ers, and the Eagles' Brian Westbrook, who led the NFL in total yards from scrimmage.
The Senior Bowl is also a non-profit, charitable event that has donated over $4.2 million through the Food World-Senior Bowl Charitable Partnership over the last ten years.
Under Armour, known as the originator of moisture wicking performance apparel worn by athletes, launched its first line of footwear-football cleats-during the 2006 NFL draft with a major media campaign entitled CLICK-CLACK™, a reference to the sound that cleats make on concrete just before the players step on the field.
