05/07/15 - T Antonio Richardson was waived by the Vikings Thursday (May 7).
08/31/14 - T Antonio Richardson, a rookie free agent from Tennessee, was too impressive to release but not quite good enough to trust as a swing tackle on a 53-man roster. So the Vikings placed him on injured reserve. Persistent knee injuries at the University of Tennessee prevented Richardson from being drafted.
05/13/14 - Vikings Sign 15 College Free Agents: Antonio Richardson, Tackle, Tennessee...Started 24 consecutive games at LT for the Vols including all 12 games during the 2012 and 2013 seasons and played in 36 total games at Tennessee...A member of the offensive line that aided the Volunteer offense gain 2,261 rushing yards in 2013, the most by Tennessee since 2004...CBSSports.com Third Team All-American, AP All-SEC Second Team Selection...Aided offense in school-record 718 yards vs. Troy (11/3/12) in which current teammate Cordarrelle Patterson amassed a team-best 219 receiving yards.

05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 72/8. *Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee, 6-6, 336, 5.21, 2-3...Here is a big, strong, experienced left tackle who may be able to step in and help soon, but is already near his ceiling. Overcame academic challenges to start 24 of 36 career games and may take a while to grasp a new playbook. Has been compared to Pittsburgh Steelers' Marcus Gilbert (2nd round, 2011). Frankly: Richardson, whose constant conditioning troubles are reflected in his nickname "Tiny," has some raw ability, but is not as aware as an NFL offensive lineman needs to be. He was abused last season by South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1 rated player in this draft. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
05/06/14 - Dane Brugler's 2014 NFL Draft Final Top-50: 45. Antonio Richardson OT, Tennessee (6-6, 336, 5.30, JR)...A heavy waist bender who gets lazy at times, Richardson has exciting potential because of his wide base, stout frame and vines for arms. His inconsistent technique makes it tough for him to sustain, but if he irons out the wrinkles, Richardson has a high NFL ceiling. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
