Colts could have short leash for Trent Richardson
The Colts could have a short leash for running back Trent Richardson in 2014.
Trent Richardson's 2013 season was a massive disappointment. Many believed he could break out as a feature back with the Browns, but he was dealt before Week 3 to the Colts, where he was even worse than expected.
Donald Brown would eventually steal his starting spot and, quite literally, run with it. Brown was signed as a free agent by the Chargers this offseason.
Which means Richardson is the likely starter in Indy for 2014. But the Colts might not give him much wiggle room when it comes to producing.
Mike Wells of ESPN writes Richardson will likely get the "first shot at starting" for the Colts, over Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard but will need to "produce right away because it's unlikely the Colts will wait for him to get going."
Richardson carried the ball 158 times for the Colts after the trade, averaging a paltry 2.9 yards per carry.
The offensive line didn't block well for the former No. 3 overall pick, but Brown was running behind the same line and still managed to average 5.3 yards a carry.
Things were so bad Andrew Luck (admittedly a very good runner) ended up with more rushing touchdowns than Richardson last year.
He simply has to make better decisions and take advantages of the opportunities he missed out on last season.
