Trent Richardson's career in the NFL didn't go exactly how the running back thought it would.
After being selected by the Cleveland Browns with the third overall pick in the 2012 Draft, Richardson lasted just four years in the league before being cut by the Oakland Raiders before the 2015 season.
And now, with his career seemingly all but over, the power back has gone back to where it all started for him, at the Alabama Crimson Tide. However, T.Rich isn't back as a coach. Nope, instead, he was on the Tide's scout team.

Whatever Richardson did, it looks like it worked as Alabama held Fournette - a likely top 10 pick in the 2017 - to less than 50 yards, a week after he broke LSU's rushing record against Ole Miss. Maybe he's found his calling...
