AAF’s Trent Richardson says ‘the goal’ is to return to the NFL
Trent Richardson is trying, once again, to have a redemption arc in the NFL, and his latest attempt at doing so came a few days ago.
Think you know Trent Richardson?

The current AAF player recently showed off his stuff with the Birmingham Iron. During the game, at about 7:30 of the fourth quarter, he took the handoff and ran up the middle and carried an entire pile of bodies for a first down.
However, Trent Richardson was held in check the entire first half, stuffed for losses several times by Mike Singletary’s defense, and then coughed up the football in the third quarter. Channing Stribling, another ex-Brown, looked dominant in manhandling Richardson in the open field.
He’s certainly come a long way from his fall from grace in the NFL.
And, according to some reports, his performance is interesting to those in the NFL — so much so, in fact, that they’re interested in perhaps inviting him back — which was his ultimate goal to begin with.
“He was one of the best running backs in college football, finishing third in the Heisman Trophy voting back in 2011 when he had over 2,000 total yards and scored 24 touchdowns. Richardson is only 28 years old, appears to be healthier than ever, and looks like the first-round pick that NFL scouts drooled over when he came out of college.”
It will be interesting to see if Trent Richardson will ultimately see his dream of returning to the league realized. We will certainly keep you apprised as it goes along.
