Jim Brown apparently hasn’t changed his mind about Trent Richardson. Now he’s taking it a step further and questioning the commitment of Mike Holmgren to Tony Grossi.

“What have I said about the Browns other than the fact that Richardson is an ordinary back? There’s so much I could say. So you tell all those people that want to look at me, look at what you’ve got. You’re sitting on a mess. You’ve got a guy that doesn’t give interviews except in other cities. I ask all the people in Cleveland, do you get the impression that Mr. Holmgren wants to be there? If you do, then tell me.”

I wouldn’t expect Jim Brown to like Mike Holmgren very much seeing as he was the one who seemingly took Jim Brown’s paycheck away. As for his thoughts on Trent Richardson, I think I understand where he is coming from.

Trent Richardson strikes me as the kind of back that needs reps in order to break a few. He isn’t Adrian Peterson or Barry Sanders it wouldn’t seem. Even still, Jim Brown seems to have a hard time articulating exactly what he means through the haze of bitterness.
