Saskatchewan Roughriders

Richardson played for four seasons, from 2003-2006, for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Over that span of time he caught 113 passes for 1471 yards and scored 4 touchdowns.

Dallas Cowboys

Richardson was signed by the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League in March 2007, but he faced an uphill battle at making the Cowboys' roster due to the depth Dallas had at the wide receiver position. On August 27, 2007, the Dallas Cowboys waived Richardson, along with seven other players, as part of its roster cuts prior to the start of the 2007 Regular Season.

Montreal Alouettes

On March 18, 2008, the Montreal Alouettes signed Richardson.[1] In the 2008 season, Richardson was named a CFL All-Star after leading the CFL with 16 TD receptions while catching 98 passes for 1287 yards.

Richardson made news on January 7, 2009, when it was reported that he turned down an offer to sign with the Minnesota Vikings of the NFL and chose to remain with the Alouettes. He also drew interest from Seattle, San Francisco, and Tampa Bay.[2]
