After failing to find a job during the 2015 season, Trent Richardson says he’s just looking forward to competing for a job in 2016.
Richardson, the former No. 3 overall pick who flamed out with the Browns, Colts and Raiders, told the Baltimore Sun that he’s been in contact with the Ravens and is confident he’ll get a chance to earn a job in Baltimore.
“I’m in a position to earn a spot on the team, a chance to actually be that guy. I know there’s going to be a lot of competition. I know there’s going to be a lot of fighting among ourselves, but we’re all out there for the same thing. We all want to try and get better, we all want to be that guy. But at the same time, I’m coming in and I’m ready to work.”
Hard work wasn’t exactly Richardson’s hallmark when he was last in the league, and he admits that he got out of shape and overweight in Indianapolis. But in Baltimore, he knows nothing is going to be handed to him. And he promises he’s going to prove he belongs in the NFL.
