Richardson joined the Argos in October of last year, getting in three games down the stretch while making eight defensive tackles with one forced fumble and one interception returned for a touchdown.

The six-foot, 191-pound cover man spent the 2018 NFL off-season with the Oakland Raiders after playing 27 games over two years (2016-2017) for the Calgary Stampeders where he tallied 60 defensive tackles, 14 special teams tackles, four interceptions, one sack and one forced fumble.
