Ravens Agree to Terms with Former First Round RB Trent Richardson

The Ravens and former Browns, Colts and Raiders running back Trent Richardson agreed to terms on Monday morning, as team hopes he can revive his career in Baltimore and add to the clubs’ ground game.

The sides first talked in February, but the Ravens wanted Richardson to be in better condition before signing him. He reached a deal on Monday morning, just before the start of the Ravens’ offseason workout program.

Richardson needs a strong offseason and training camp to find a spot in Baltimore’s crowded backfield. The Ravens currently have Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Terrance West and Terrence Magee at running back.

One of the bigger busts of the 2012 draft, Richardson has played for the Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts and Oakland Raiders. He has struggled with injuries and his weight over his three-year career, averaging 3.3 yards per carry.

It’s not much of a risk to bring in Richardson, but if he can do anything will be another story, and frankly if he makes the final roster in August it will be somewhat of a surprise.

    Richardson has been such a disappointment – maybe the Ravens organization can get him to meet the potential he had coming out of college.
