Trent Richardson, who previously played for the NFL, CFL, and AAF. Recently spoke his heart and mind when he said he will never give up on his football dream. He is looking to play for the XFL in 2020.
Richardson recently attended one of the XFL Summer Showcase tryouts where he said the following: “I have a chip on my shoulder just to prove to myself and to keep showing myself and my kids that I’ll never give up and I’ll always follow my dream.”
It was in 2012 that Trent Richardson, who was the third overall pick in that year’s NFL draft, began his NFL career with the Cleveland Browns. During his first season with the Browns, Richardson ran for 950 yards on 267 carries and 11 touchdowns.
In just his second season, Richardson was traded to the Indianapolis Colts. During his time with the Colts, Richardson ran for 977 yards and six touchdowns on 3.1 yards per carry.
Richardson didn’t last long in the NFL as after spending some time with the Oakland Raiders and the Baltimore Ravens, he was let go from the league. In 2017, Richardson had a short stint with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. Richardson would then join the AAF’s Birmingham Iron in 2018 before the league folded earlier this year.
It will be interesting to see if Richardson will make it to the XFL before the league begins play in February 8th and 9th, 2020.
