Trent Richardson Says Family & Friends Spent $1.6 million Of His Money In Just 10 Months Time


Trent Richardson has been on a downhill slide ever since establishing himself as the best running back in college football.

Since being drafted by the Browns and trading to Colts, Richardson has since been cut by the Raiders and last week, the Ravens.

According to, at the end of training camp and without an NFL team for the 2015 season, the former Alabama All-American took a close look at his finances for the first time.

What he found was shocking. Among other things, Richardson noted 11 Netflix and eight Hulu accounts in his name. Bottle service in his name at clubs, even though Richardson doesn’t drink.

Richardson sat down with ESPN, specifically Shelley Smith, for an E:60 interview, revealing for the first time that his family and friends spent $1.6 million of his money in just ten months time, from January to October in 2015.

“I finally just looked at my bank statement, and I was just like, ‘Where did this come from? Where did that come from?'” Richardson said. “And my guy was sitting there telling me, ‘Man, we was telling you.’ I know he was telling me, but that’s just like telling a kid to stop running in the hall. They’re going to still do it when you turn your back or you leave. It’s just one of them moments to where I was just blinded by my heart, by loving everybody and thinking that everyone was for me. I know they love me. I know they do care. But at the time, they took advantage of it.”

When Richardson signed with Cleveland, he cashed in on a $20,489,796 guaranteed contract. Out of football and taking a hard look at his finances for the first time, Richardson said he has reassess who he should have in his inner circle, a move which includes removing his brother Terrell from payroll, who was receiving a $100,000-per-year check, listing him as a personal assistant.

“Ya’ll are trying to live a lifestyle that I’m not even living,” Richardson said he told his friends and relatives. “Ya’ll are living the lifestyle that ya’ll think I should be living.”

Richardson said he was at fault for giving others access to his money and for sending along financial help to every friend and relative with a hard-luck story.



“He’s such a good guy,” Alabama coach Nick Saban told ESPN. “He’s such a good person, and he wants to please everyone. And I think sometimes when guys have that personality, which is a great personality to have, it makes it very difficult to disappoint anyone with the word ‘No.'”

Richardson started working out again last year with an eye toward returning to the NFL. He got a chance with the Baltimore Ravens, but a hamstring problem and arthroscopic knee surgery kept him sidelined, and the Ravens waived him on Tuesday. He never got on the field during training camp.

Richardson quite giving up the chance of making an NFL roster just yet. He’s since returned to his hometown of Pensacola, FL to rehab his knee to be ready for his next opportunity.



  1. The dude might have been great at UBama using zone blocking, but when he got to the Browns they didn’t use that type of scheme and it was more to daylight on the back. Richardson could never pick that up at and running to daylight. BooHoo
