Trent Richardson still believes he can reach Hall of Fame


Most observers have written off Trent Richardson as a productive NFL player. Richardson, though, believes he will still be that and then some.

Now with the Baltimore Ravens, Richardson believes his NFL career will end in Canton. Yes, Canton, the site of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“Putting on a yellow jacket,” Richardson told CSN Mid Atlantic’s Chris Miller when asked how he imagined his NFL career ending. “People wrote him off, he came back and did some amazing things. He always had the pedigree. He just had to get back to the guy that we know.”

Well, that’s…let’s be nice and call it ambitious. On the bright side, Richardson seems to have realized that this may be his last chance after he openly admitted that his focus was not completely on football after he was picked third overall in 2012.

“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. I got a taste of what that felt like. To tell my kids that their father didn’t have a job, it was big for me.

“I’m here, I’m going to be here for awhile.”

Richardson appears to have realized what went wrong for him in the NFL and has recommitted himself to his career. He’s still only 25. Still, at this point, it doesn’t matter what he does. Canton is definitely a longshot of the highest order. Perhaps start with “productive NFL player,” or even making a roster, and go from there.
