A lot is being made about the Baltimore Ravens possibly adding free agent running back Trent Richardson to their roster and to cut to the chase, it really isn't a big deal.
Richardson at this point of his career is a camp body and if he shows improvement, and I mean significant improvement from what he has shown over the last couple of seasons with his stints with the Indianapolis Colts and the Oakland Raiders, he may have a place on this team.
The Ravens are not stupid. They are not going to give Richardson a one year commitment to the team without seeing any significant results.
As BaltimoreRavens.com Writer/Editor Sarah Ellison noted, there really isn't a downside to the Ravens kicking the tires with the former third overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
Really no downside to this. Cheap experiment with potential upside. Competition brings out best in now crowded goup. https://t.co/w4RPHNvWjG— Sarah Ellison (@sgellison) February 25, 2016
Richardson is pretty much like a pet project. This is a low risk, high reward kind of deal. Besides, his vision as a ball carrier can't be much worse than this right?
