Trent Richardson

Former first-round pick Trent Richardson discussed what happened with Mike Wells of ESPN during his time in Indianapolis following his release from the Colts.

Me and the GM didn’t see eye to eye,” Richardson said. “My next step, I’ll be the starter. Indy didn’t fit me.

Richardson told Wells that he was “continually fined for being 230 pounds” when the Colts wanted him to remain at 227 pounds.

In regards to missing the AFC Championship game, Richardson said he told HC Chuck Pagano that he would fly to New England for the game. However, Pagano told him he was going to be inactive no matter what.
