If the Los Angeles Rams are looking for AAF players to add to their roster, Trent Richardson may be worth a look.
Would the Los Angeles Rams consider adding any players from the AAF in need of work now that the league has officially suspended operations?
This may sound crazy to even consider since the Rams will enter the 2019 season as defending champions, and don’t seem that desperate. But if there were one player worth giving consideration, Trent Richardson could be right up their ally.
Yes, the Rams have made it clear they’re set at running back after deciding to go with Malcolm Brown as the No. 2 man behind Todd Gurley in the backfield over C.J. Anderson, but how many times have teams all of a sudden felt a change of heart?
Football fans can say whatever they want about Richardson being one of the NFL’s biggest busts after looking at how quickly his career went downhill following a solid rookie campaign in 2012 with the Cleveland Browns, but things can always change for the better.
Take a look at the impact made by Richardson during his time with the Birmingham Iron in the AAF when he rushed for 11 touchdowns in eight games, and it’s difficult not to wonder if the 28-year-old deserves another shot at the NFL level.
Los Angeles may seem like a long shot destination given their current situation at running back, but how many times has this team pulled off unexpected surprises before?
So with the recent news surrounding the AAF, here are three reasons why the Rams giving Richardson a look doesn’t sound like the most crazy idea in the world.
