After spending the whole offseason getting into tip-top shape, the 6-foot-4, 295-pound Richardson, who is from St. Louis, has been borderline unstoppable this season. He has racked up 38 tackles — tied for second-most on the team, which is ridiculous for a tackle — with six 1/2 tackles for loss and three sacks.
