Titans sign Barry Richardson

The Titans have signed a veteran free agent, and his mission isn’t so much to kill as it to take up space.

The team announced they had signed veteran tackle Barry Richardson, who has 49 career starts with the Rams and Chiefs.

The Titans were running short-handed up front anyway, with three starters limited to individual work during minicamp, so they needed some bodies.

Richardson would be solid backup when their regulars are well, but he’s started every game the last three seasons, so he lends some needed experience.
