Running back Trent Richardson held a youth football camp in Strongsville over the past two days. Following one of the sessions, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal asked him about the team drafting wide receiver Josh Gordon in the supplemental draft last week:
"We’re all gonna embrace him with open arms, and we can’t wait to get him out there," Richardson said. "I know he’s gonna [make] a big impact on our offense. There’s a lot of high standards he’s gonna set for himself, and there’s gonna be a lot of expectations for him. But at the same time, we’re gonna just treat him like, ‘Hey, you don’t have to live up to all this other stuff. Just play your game and just buy into the program.’"
After the jump is video from the ABJ which features Richardson discussing how his seventh-grade teacher telling him he was going to be a failure served as a form of motivation in him making it to the NFL. In an article from the Sun News, Richardson also commented how much he enjoyed the "coaching" aspect of the weekend. WEWS also posted some video here that shows Richardson coaching up the youths in various drills.
