But he has seemingly gone out of his way to criticize Trent Richardson, the Browns’ fourth overall pick this year, all throughout the offseason.
Richardson, however, has decided to take the high road and just laugh the criticisms off, according to NFL.com.
“When it comes down to it, I have to work and make sure I make him a believer,” Richardson said, noting that Brown accomplished exponentially more than he has so far. “I haven’t done anything yet.”
Richardson also noted that he doesn’t have a problem with Brown, who has described the former Alabama star as an “ordinary” talent.
Brown rushed for 12,312 yards on 5.2 yards per carry in nine seasons with the Browns. He ranks 10th all-time in total touchdowns scored with 126. Richardson is coming off a season in which he rushed for a school-record 1,679 yards, scored 24 total touchdowns and finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting.
