On Friday, Cleveland Browns first round pick and running back Trent Richardson talked to the Akron Beacon Journal saying he wants to, one day, be in the NFL Hall of Fame. “I want to be in the Hall of Fame, and I want to be one of the most talked-about running backs in the NFL. I want my name to always be remembered in a good way, not in a dumb way or in a crazy way. For me, I’m always gonna work hard and make sure that my standards are set high.”
Now, Richardson has another goal to add to the list. “I want to be the best thing that ever happened to Cleveland,” the Browns rookie running back told me and SiriusXM NFL Radio co-host Jim Miller last week at the NFL’s Rookie Symposium in Aurora, Ohio.
“I want to be that type of all-time guy when it comes down to it.”
Richardson added that he is hoping to be a player that the coach does not want to take off the field. “I’m going to get the ball. I’m going to catch the ball. I’m going to block. I’m going to do everything I can and they’re going to put me in the best situation. I want to be that guy they don’t have to take off the field.”
In order to be “the best thing that ever happened to Cleveland” Richardson will have to help bring a championship to the city. If he can help the Browns win, there is no doubt that he will be one popular man in Cleveland.
