Jets claim Daryl Richardson off waivers from Rams

Daryl Richardson wasn't out of work for long. 

The Jets claimed the running back off waivers Friday, only one day after he was released by the Rams.

Richardson joins a crowded backfield in New York that includes free-agent pickup Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory, Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell. CJ2K and the bruising Ivory are expect to split time and receive the bulk of carries. 

It's unclear where Richardson fits in here, but his presence doesn't bode well for the embattled Goodson, who played in just two games in 2013 following an array of run-ins with the law.

Richardson didn't do much his rookie season after being drafted in the seventh round, but he was the starter in St. Louis last season before losing the job to the emergent Zac Stacy.

Richardson has just 690 yards and zero touchdowns in two career seasons.
