Trent Richardson hoping for big game against former team
Trent Richardson was supposed to be the face of Cleveland's offense for years to come after the Browns selected him with the third overall pick in the 2012 draft. Then, out of nowhere seemingly, the Browns traded Browns to the Colts early in the following season.
It was bizarre, but a move that has seemed to play out in favor of the Browns. Richardson, in three seasons, hasn't put up the kind of numbers a lot of people thought and cemented the idea that running backs are no longer the prized top 10 kind of picks they once were.
However, with the Colts facing the Browns this week, Richardson is looking for some revenge. Speaking to reporters, Richardson admitted he was shocked to hear he was traded so shortly into his career.
"They gave up on me," Richardson said, via The Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I'm going to go into this game like it's my last one."
Richardson, who has 445 yards and three touchdowns this season, will want to have a big game against his former team. And it coudl happen, as the Browns rank 29th against the run at allowing 132.5 rushing yards per game.
