Cardinals Waive WR Rico Richardson, Sign WR Franky Okafor

The Arizona Cardinals announced Saturday that they’ve placed WR Rico Richardson on waivers and signed WR Franky Okafor to a contract.

Richardson, 24, originally signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Jackson State back in 2013. After a brief stint with the Texans, Richardson signed on with the Titans back in June of 2014 and was on and off of their practice squad during his time in Tennessee.

Unfortunately, the Titans elected to place Richardson on waivers at the end of last season and not bring him back on a future/reserve contract. Richardson later signed a contract with the Cardinals in June, so his stay was obviously short lived.

In 2015, Richardson was active for five games, but did not record a single statistic.
