I don’t think simply playing good is Trent Richardson’s problem.
The Colts have maintained that they have no buyers remorse after trading a first round pick to the Browns for the talented Richardson.
While they don’t have regrets about the trade, Richardson’s carries have dwindled some as Donald Brown’s workload has increased.
Richardson told the Indy Star that “he’s not frustrated,” and “thinks he’s been playing good.”
“I’m not frustrated at all because I think I’ve been playing good,” Richardson said, via the Indianapolis Star. “If you turn on the film, I don’t have any missed assignments. I haven’t had any missed reads. I’ve been playing good. Stuff just hasn’t matched up like we thought it would when I’m in there. I think teams match up differently when I come in. But if Donald is having a good day or Andrew [Luck] is having a good day, I think that’s a good day for me even if people are keying on me. That might let Donald get going or let Andrew have a big day. That’s a good day for me, too.”
Richardson’s problem is that he wasn’t drafted No. 3 overall to simply be a solid back. Trent Richardson was supposed to be a star, and that fact alone, will always have him under the microscope.
