RB Trent Richardson Talks About the First Day of Practice

(On getting his contract signed before camp started) – “I didn’t think I was going to miss any time, but I let me agents work it out and let coach and them work it out. They wanted me to be here and I’m here and I’m happy to be here and I wanted to be here as soon as possible. It was a good deal for me and it was a good deal for them. I’m just happy to be here and I’m very happy to be getting paid like I’m getting paid so it’s a blessing.”

(On what it is like having money he never dreamed about growing up) – “Like I said, it is a blessing and a living dream and it is just surreal. Once you get money it is like ‘Ok, what do I do with it?’ and now you just have to save and invest and make sure you can live the rest of your life. After football you still have at least forty or fifty years after and you have to live. For me it is just a lot of investing and a lot of saving.”

(On if camp will be different once he puts pads on and the fans are out watching) – “Most definitely. It’s going to be way different because all of these guys out here are working and when the vets get here they are going to be turned up and so we are going to have to up our tempo just as well. There are going to be a lot more football players out here so we can go faster and get winded more because we have time to rush through all of the different plays. We all have to be turned up and no matter what have to make sure that we are out here doing our job and contributing to a winner this year.”

(On if the team will have a learning curve with a rookie running back and quarterback) – “As far as me and Brandon (Weeden), I think there will be a learning curve for us, but for the team I think we are going to fit right in when it comes to being game-ready. Both of our programs we were at in college were at the top and we both worked hard and we still work hard to this day. We are both out there trying to earn our positions and we are out there trying every day. We are doing everything we can as far as studying, watching more film, running through the plays and finishing past the last defender, finishing the throw. We are doing everything we can to make sure that we are professionally ready and ready for this first preseason game and the regular season.”
