Titans Sign Former Chiefs Tackle


The Tennessee Titans added former Kansas City Chiefs tackle Barry Richardson Wednesday, giving him a chance to compete for a roster spot in training camp.

Richardson was a sixth-round pick of the Chiefs in 2008 and appeared in 48 games while in Kansas City, including 33 starts. He spent last year with the St. Louis Rams, starting in all 16 games.

Though he spent plenty of time on the field for the Chiefs, he’ll most be known for two incidents that didn’t happen during any play.

Back in 2010 he was flagged for a penalty that called back a Jamaal Charles touchdown. As he was told to stay on the sidelines instead of returning to the lineup, Richardson gave a full on shove to special teams coach Steve Hoffman.

Then after signing with the Rams last year, he told the media (jokingly) he was looking forward to cut-blocking Tamba Hali.

If the 27-year-old can make the Titans 53-man roster, he’ll get another chance to hit his former team in Week 5. That’s when the Chiefs travel to Tennessee.
