Trent Richardson for all intents and purposes, had a horrible 2013 season. Richardson 458 rushing yards and 2.9 yards per carry average left him open for harsh criticism.
Many pundits wondered if he could end up turning into the biggest bust in years.
Richardson believes his struggles are a thing of the past, telling the team’s official website on Wednesday: “I remembered the playbook last year. I know it now.”
“It felt good. It’s way different,” said Richardson. “It’s much easier and it’s slowing down a lot, so it’s making the game much better for me.”
“I’m learning a lot, as much as I’ve learned in this last week, (it’s) much more than I learned last year,” said Richardson. “The off-season is very important because you have a chance to vibe with your team, to build that respect, to build that trust and then to build that team chemistry with your offensive line, with your quarterback.
“Knowing the concept of a play is the biggest thing because when it comes down to it, if you just remember what you’re doing, that’s not good enough. I remembered the playbook last year. I know it now. I’m learning a lot this year.”
