Baltimore Ravens running back Trent Richardson is attempting to make an NFL roster after being out of football for all of last season, but the 25-year-old has much higher ambitions than just having a job.
Speaking to Chris Miller of Comcast SportsNet, Richardson said that he envisions himself one day being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“Putting on a yellow jacket,” Richardson said about his future. “People wrote him off, he came back and did some amazing things. He always had the pedigree. He just had to get back to the guy that we know.”
Despite his confidence in his abilities, Richardson realizes the importance of his opportunity with Baltimore
“This is a good chance of being my last ride when it comes to proving myself in the NFL,” Richardson said. “I know myself that I’m not done in the NFL, don’t want to be done. I got a taste of what that felt like. To tell my kids that their father didn’t have a job, it was big for me.
“I’m here, I’m going to be here for awhile.”
Over his four-year career, which has included stops in Indianapolis, Cleveland and Oakland, Richardson has rushed for 2,032 yards and 17 touchdowns, averaging 3.3 yards per carry.
