The Jordan Richards era has ended.

The safety has been traded to the Falcons in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick. The Boston Globe's Jim McBride was first to report the news.

The second-round pick has been quite underwhelming with the team after being drafted in 2015. He's primarily just played on special teams.

It would seem this is good news for Jason McCourty making the team, who has experimented with safety the last two games.
