The Facts: Richardson is clearly trying to take advantage of what some believe could be his last shot in the NFL. After the 5-9 RB reached as high as 240 pounds, he is now weighing in at 218, according to his trainer and former Crimson Tide teammate Mike McCoy. The 22-pound drop this offseason means he's even lighter than his listed playing weight during his college days at Alabama. "For all the people who counted this man out!!! Trust me when I tell you he is war ready, he is in the best shape of his life and a mindset of a King focused on the next territory to conquer!" McCoy wrote on Instagram with side-by-side pictures illustrating Richardson's weight loss. "He will shock the NFL this year... Go shine like the star you are my guy!!!"
Diehards Line: The 2012 third-overall pick hasn’t lived up to his draft status. Just two games into his second season, the Cleveland Browns traded Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. He spent two years there before becoming a free agent in 2015 and signing with the Oakland Raiders. Richardson was cut in training camp after reports of being overweight and struggling with injuries. Even with the new body, Richardson will have an uphill battle to make the Ravens roster and fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited about his prospects until he shows us something.
