Bengals release P Harris, sign Richardson
Terms of Richardson's deal were not disclosed.
The move reunites Richardson with coach Marvin Lewis from their days with the Baltimore Ravens. Richardson was the Ravens' punter from 1998-2001, when Lewis was the club's defensive coordinator.
Richardson, 30, was a benefit to Lewis' record-setting defense in Baltimore by placing 30 punts inside the 20-yard line in 1999. He left for Minnesota as a free agent in 2002, but was released by Philadelphia in training camp this season.
Harris, who beat out Travis Dorsch during training camp, was last in the AFC with a 30-yard net average. He also had a 29-yard punt in overtime Sunday that set up Buffalo's winning touchdown.
