BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Running back Trent Richardson has been bounced around the NFL for a few years, but signed a deal with the Baltimore Ravens before the start of the offseason workout program and is striving for great success with the team.
As the No. 3 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Richardson is on his fourth team in four seasons. He has battled with injuries and his weight throughout his career.
Richardson has never averaged more than 3.6 yards per carry in an NFL season, but he is looking to change all of that starting with the Ravens.
He was recently interviewed by Comcast SportsNet and when asked how his story would end, Richardson said: “Putting on a yellow jacket.”
Richardson is of course referring to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “This is a good chance of being my last ride when it comes to proving myself in the NFL,” Richardson said. “I know myself that I’m not done in the NFL, don’t want to be done,” said Richardson.
He returned to the field this week, after missing the first week of OTA’s with a hamstring issue. He’ll be competing with Justin Forsett,Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Kenneth Dixon and Terrance West for a spot on the roster.
