Barry Richardson Visits, Fails To Sign With St. Louis Rams

The Kansas City Chiefs had a few moves they were looking to make this offseason, but perhaps none was bigger than addressing the right side of the offensive line. The right tackle position has been written about ad nauseum for Chiefs fans, analyzing how much the team needed an upgrade from Barry Richardson. The former Chiefs RT is now a free agent on the open market and is looking for a likely new home as the team has moved on to Eric Winston.

The St. Louis Rams were one of his recent visits, but apparently things did not work out after the Rams signed only one of the five offensive linemen they brought in for visits. That's an interesting figure since the Chiefs have been bringing in one at a time. Eventually Jeff Fisher's new team added Quinn Ojinnaka from the Indianapolis Colts instead over the others.

Jim Thomas writes, "The four other players visiting Rams Park: New Orleans linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar, San Francisco offensive guard Chilo Rachal, Kansas City offensive tackle Barry Richardson and New York Jets offensive guard Robert Turner."

Richardson could return to the Chiefs in a reserve and suddenly that starting experience could become a strength. At the same time, he might be ready to turn the corner and gain a fresh start elsewhere.
