While the situation was blown out of proportion (when doesn’t that happen?), Browns legend Jim Brown did say that new Browns running back Trent Richardson was “ordinary” when the team drafted him back in April.
Richardson essentially let it go (though he no doubt used the slight as motivation), and now that Brown has decided to return to Cleveland to honor his former teammate Ernie Green, the two will finally meet. Don’t expect that rocky start to have any impact on their meeting, though.
“Just to meet [Brown] is an honor,” said Richardson. “He’s always been an icon. He’s always been somebody that you want to have a season like, a career like. To meet him and be on the same field means a lot.” (Source: Cleveland.com)
And with Jim Brown watching, Trent Richardson has every opportunity on Sunday to make the Hall of Famer describe him as even more than “impressive.”
