If you’re drafted high enough, you’re going to continue to get chances, no matter what you’ve done — or not done.

The latest guy to get a chance he may or may not deserve is running back Trent Richardson.

According to Matt Zenitz of, the former No. 3 overall pick is expected to sign with the Ravens, pending a physical.

Richardson was out of football last year after getting cut by the Raiders, though he’s had some scattered workouts since last summer. He was checked out by the Bills and Broncos previously.

Since a moderately productive rookie year with the Browns, he’s been a disaster. He averaged 3.3 yards per carry for the Colts after they gave up a first-round pick to acquire him.

For the Ravens, it’s a no-risk look at a guy who once was OK, though there’s no indication things are going to be different this year.
