Undrafted free agents 2014: Minnesota Vikings to sign Antonio ‘Tiny’ Richardson


 

As is the case every year, once the draft comes to an end, there are many players still looking for a home. Usually, those undrafted players quickly sign with a team and get ready to go to work. Often times it is better for a player to go undrafted instead of getting picked in the final round. Players can assess their situation and see if a team has a need at their position or has shown a lot of interest in them. In some cases, players simply choose to stay closer to home.

According to Shane P. Hallam of draftTV.com, the Vikings will former Tennessee Volunteers’ offensive tackle Antonio “Tiny” Richardson.

Richardson was a very highly sought after prospect and was viewed by many as a second or third rounder, so going undrafted is surprising to many pundits and experts.

The 6’6, 336-pounder obviously has a decent shot to make the Vikings or potentially another team.
