Baltimore Ravens runningback Trent Richardson has lost over 20 pounds

Never a bad thing to hear for a talented back

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The new and physically improved Trent Richardson is ready for battle. The former 3rd overall pick is supposedly in "the best shape of his life" and ready for the uphill battle.

I would like to quell the hype before too long as Trent Richardson has never once struggled in the physical department. It was the ballcarrier vision. Trent would miss gaps and holes and run scared.

Example A
Example B
Example C

It's bad when a quick google search shows the embarrassing gaps the back has missed. I feel even myself would somehow spot the lack of attackers even once in awhile.

If T-Rich 2.0 becomes a smart ball-carrier the Ravens have absolutely scored a game-changing runningback. I only hope to witness a practice filled with Richardson hitting gaps and embarrassing C.J. Mosley, as bad as that may seem.
