RB Trent Richardson Shows Off Size, Speed During Cleveland Browns Minicamp


Keeping in mind that rookie minicamps are a far cry from actual football, it would appear that running back Trent Richardson is as good as advertised.

The 5-9, 228-pound back showed off his speed, size, and strength during the Cleveland Browns’ minicamp this past weekend, using the practices as an opportunity to break out that deceptive speed in the open field.

Much like quarterback Brandon Weeden, media members and coaches were gushing over what they saw in Richardson. Even head coach Pat Shurmur was joining the bandwagon of praise.

"“Wow!” coach Pat Shurmur said when asked to comment on Richardson’s physique. “He’s a very powerful man. He’s powerfully built. Don’t let the 5-9 fool you. He’s almost 230 pounds. That’s a lot of muscle packed into that body. I just think he’s got a very powerful build, much like we thought, and it shows up on the field.”"

In Richardson’s case, no one seems able to get over his presence on the field. And while it may only be a rookie minicamp in shorts, it’s been a long time since players in Cleveland garnered this much deserved attention right away.

Excited for the season to start yet?
