Raiders sign offer sheet to Sean Richardson

The Oakland Raiders continued their busy offseason with the signing of an offer sheet for a player in the secondary.

The Raiders reportedly signed an offer sheet to restricted free agent safety Sean Richardson, who served as the Green Bay Packers backup safety last year.

The Packers now have until Monday to match the offer, which has to be met with the same terms. If they do not, the Raiders will not have to give them any compensation.

Richardson joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and has since played in 27 games, recording 42 tackles. He played in all 16 games last year, recording a career-high 25 tackles.

The Packers value him as a backup safety, so it seems unlikely the Raiders’ offer will go unmatched.
