The Carolina Panthers announced Monday that they’ve signed six players to contracts including CB Shaquille Richardson.
- The other players signed include: RB Jalen Simmons, WR Miles Shuler, TE Braxton Deaver, OT Jordan Rigsbee, and LB Jared Barber.
The Panthers cut Brandon Boykin today, so it appears as though Richardson will take his place on their 53-man roster.
Richardson, 24, was taken in the fifth-round of last year’s draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He lasted just over a year in Pittsburgh before he was cut before the 2015 draft.
Richardson later caught on with the Chiefs and Cardinals last year before eventually signing on to the Titans’ practice squad in November. However, Tennessee elected to not bring him back on a future/reserve contract.
Richardson has yet to appear in an NFL game.
