Richardson spent four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a reserve defensive back from 2004-07. He then spent a season with the Rhein Fire of NFL Europe and spent 2008 with the Los Angeles Avengers of the AFL.

Richardson was an All-American selection as a senior captain for Cal Poly.

The Arena Football League is returning in 2011 after a two-year absence because of financial difficulties.
