By all accounts, last year was a whirlwind for Colts RB Trent Richardson.

Traded to Indianapolis in the third week of the season for a first-round pick, there was already pressure to perform out of the backfield despite not knowing schemes, blocking assignments or player personnel.

Richardson, splitting time with Donald Brown, struggled to gain a foothold and impress his new teammates. He averaged a meager 2.9 yards per carry and didn't produce more than 64 yards in any game.

This year's supposedly different for Richardson, the former third overall pick who's been making the most of his first offseason with the Colts.
