There’s no better way to signal the need for more competition in a particular position group than by bringing in a veteran player at the end of August, which is what the Seahawks did Sunday by re-signing wide receiver Paul Richardson.

The receiver room has been plagued by injuries lately, with Phillip Dorsett, John Ursua and Cody Thompson all missing time.
