Everyone Is Laughing At Trent Richardson For Saying He Wants To Make The NFL Hall Of Fame

You'd be hard-pressed to find a bigger NFL Draft bust of the last five years than Trent Richardson. 

The former Alabama star running back, taken No. 3 overall by Cleveland in 2012, is currently on his fourth team (the Baltimore Ravens) since entering the league. He didn't play in 2015 and he's totaled 2,032 yards on 3.3 yards a carry in four seasons. 

Richardson's NFL goals remain high, though. In many peoples' eyes, they're too high. 

The 25-year-old told CSN Mid-Atlantic that he sees his career ending by putting on a yellow jacket, a.k.a, making the NFL Hall of Fame. 

From CSNMA:

"Putting on a yellow jacket," Richardson said of how he wants his career to end. "People wrote him off, he came back and did some amazing things. He always had the pedigree. He just had to get back to the guy that we know."

Richardson is now getting laughed at on Twitter for thinking that.

Sure, it seems incredibly unlikely that Richardson will end up making the NFL Hall of Fame (or even being in the league at the age of 30). 

But is it that bad for him to think that way? 

Every young professional athlete (and Richardson's still pretty young) probably thinks their career will end in the Hall of Fame. 

It would be surprising if Richardson didn't think his career would end on a high note.
