Jim Brown has made no bones about how “ordinary” he thinks Trent Richardson is. In fact, he’s so adamant that Richardson is ordinary that he took the time to expound on his earlier comments just in case you didn’t believe him.
Up until now, Trent Richardson has been silent about the Hall of Famer’s criticism of him. But he broke his silence earlier this month to ESPN.com about it and basically said that Brown’s comments really don’t concern him.
“He has his own thoughts. That’s him being him,” Richardson said. “I have no problem with it. I just wish the best of luck for him whatever he’s doing in life.”
“I laugh at the situation,” Richardson said. “You don’t know me from spic to span. But he’s Jim Brown. He’s done a lot here and I haven’t done anything yet. I have a lot to accomplish and big shoes to fill. When it comes down to it, I have to work and make sure I make him a believer. I haven’t done anything yet.”
Probably the best thing Richardson could say. He hasn’t done anything yet, so he needs to focus on things he can control. One of which is how he plays on the field. And if he plays like the Browns think he will, Jim Brown will be on the bandwagon soon enough.
