New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora is issuing a challenge to Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson over comments Richardson made earlier this week, reports ESPN.com.
"If (Trent) looks on tape and he thinks he sees some candy, come try and get it," Umenyiora said Friday.
Cleveland goes on the road to play the Giants on Sunday and Richardson missed the early portion of Friday's practice because of the birth of his child.
"I think that if we cover the edges and run hard, no doing all this juking and that, one move and go, I think we can have success in the running game," Richardson said.
Last week, the Philadelphia Eagles ran for 191 yards on 36 carries, with Umenyiora nemesis LeSean McCoy racking up 123 yards on 23 carries.
"If he proves it, I'll shake his hand and tap him on the butt," linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka said of Richardson. "If he doesn't, I expect never to hear from him again. The thing that he's got to learn is that in this game, talking doesn't mean anything."
