Former Alabama running back Trent Richardson could be getting another shot at making a name for himself in the NFL.
The No. 3 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft is expected to sign with the Baltimore Ravens, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It was previously reported that Richardson would sign with the Ravens, and Baltimore coach John Harbaugh still expects it to happen.
Richardson has been a disappointment at the professional level after rushing for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns during his rookie season with the Cleveland Browns. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts during the 2013 season after just two games with the Browns. Richardson didn’t last very long in Indy either and was let go after the 2014 season.
He received another chance with the Oakland Raiders last season, but was cut in August as one of the team’s first batch of training camp cuts. Richardson was not on a roster during the 2015 season.
Richardson has rushed for 2,032 yards and 17 touchdowns during his tumultuous four-year career. He will likely play a depth role in Baltimore behind Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Richardson was an All-American for the Crimson Tide in 2011 after rushing for 1,679 yards and 21 touchdowns.
