Baltimore Ravens adding Trent Richardson shouldn't be a big deal

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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?
