BEREA, Ohio – Browns running back Trent Richardson spent time after practice with Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk.
Richardson has long admired Faulk, one of the NFL's most versatile backs who rushed for 12,279 yards and added 6,875 receiving yards with 136 career touchdowns. Richardson wants to be a "three-down" back like Faulk, who was at training camp as an analyst for NFL Network and will be attending the Hall of Fame festivities this weekend in Canton.
Richardson, who has studied tape of Faulk to try and pick up some of his shifty moves, got some advice from the superstar on running pass routes. Richardson said Faulk is "still the king" of running the "angle route."
Faulk says Richardson has the drive "to be great. He wants it."
