Colts' Trent Richardson: I learned more about offense in last week than I did last year

The Indianapolis Colts traded for Browns running back Trent Richardson early in the 2013 season. He didn’t perform up to expectations and reportedly struggled to learn and understand the new offense, which was all done mid-season.

The good news for Colts fans is Richardson says he is beginning to grasp the new offense, so much so that he says he has learned more in the past week than all of last season.

“I’m learning a lot, as much as I’ve learned in this last week, [it's] much more than I learned last year,” Richardson said, via the Colts’ website. “The off-season is very important because you have a chance to vibe with your team, to build that respect, to build that trust and then to build that team chemistry with your offensive line, with your quarterback. Knowing the concept of a play is the biggest thing because when it comes down to it, if you just remember what you’re doing, that’s not good enough. I remembered the playbook last year. I know it now.  I’m learning a lot this year.”
