Sports are my life. SMU is my passion. Football is my religion. Mustangs in the Pros. Here's the 411!

Richard Crawford (CB)


Richard was selected in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Redskins. He is currently a member of the Chargers practice squad.

Richard started 13 games and saw time in all 14 as a junior at SMU. This was his first year on the Hilltop. He was named to the All-Conference USA honorable mention team and recorded 59 total tackles, including 42 solos, intercepted four passes, and had nine punt returns for a total of 83 yards (9.2 avg.). He started the season off with seven tackles and a TFL against Texas Tech. At Rice, Richard intercepted a pass and tallied seven stops. He picked off two throws, registered six solo tackles and had a 35-yard punt return against Marshall.
On May 4, 2012, the Redskins officially signed him to a four-year contract. At the start of 2012 training camp, it was announced that Richard was taking reps as punt returner providing competition for Brandon Banks. After having an impressive preseason, that included having two interceptions and displaying good punt returning skills,he made the final 53-man roster at the start of the 2012 season.
On September 9, 2012, he made his NFL debut in the season opener against the New Orleans Saints and had one tackle. In Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens, he and Niles Paul took over punt/kick return duties for an inactive Brandon Banks. In overtime, Crawford returned a punt for 64 yards, which set up the game-winning field goal.
On December 30, 2012, he had his first career interception against the Dallas Cowboys. The Redskins won the game and advanced to the playoffs as the NFC East Champs.

On August 26, 2013 the Redskins waived cornerback Richard Crawford with injured designations. Richard tore his LCL in the third preseason game during a punt return. Crawford cleared waivers and reverted to Washington’s injured reserve list.

Crawford is expected to require a nine-month recovery following surgery.

Richard was released by the Redskins on August 29, 2014 during final cuts, but was signed to the practice squad the following day.

He was released from the practice squad on September 9, 2014.

He was signed to the Redskins active roster on September 29, 2014 after DeAngelo Hall suffered an injury. He was released on October 7, 2014.

He was signed to the San Diego Chargers active roster on October 27, 2014 and released on November 22 to make room for Miller after several injuries at the C position. Richard was placed on the Chargers practice squad.
