Barry Richardson was once referred to as the weakest link on the offensive line for the Kansas City Chiefs. Now he's apparently impressing the St. Louis Rams. They say one man's trash is another man's treasure, but it's hard to gauge what it means to hear that the former Chiefs right tackle is now making an impression on the Rams.
Perhaps it's a sign that the Chiefs didn't utilize him well. Or maybe it's a signal that the Rams are a horrible team. Either way, Richardson is making the Rams consider him as a potential starter instead of Jason Brown according to the latest quotes from head coach Jeff Fisher.
"The more familiar he becomes with our system, the better he is," Fisher said. "There's a lot of competition all over the roster, and Barry's created some competition at right tackle."
Richardson was replaced by the Chiefs this offseason with the signing of Eric Winston from the Houston Texans.
