Trent Richardson plans to 'learn the system' this offseason

ESPN - [Full Article]
Colts RB Trent Richardson spent too much time thinking when he took the handoff than running with the type of speed and force that made him the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 draft.
“Learn the system, not just memorizing it,” Richardson said. “Learning the whole concept of the system. There's a difference between having it memorized and feeling comfortable with the system. I’m going talk to a lot of veteran players, talk to Adrian (Peterson), talk to (LaDainian Tomlinson) , talk to Emmitt Smith to make sure I’m the best I need to be next year.”
The Colts went from pulling off the biggest trade of last season when they acquired Richardson from the Cleveland Browns for a first-round pick to currently having the move favor the Browns after Richardson only averaged 2.9 yards a carry. The thought of the dynamic duo of Richardson and quarterback Andrew Luck has yet to come together. Richardson ended up losing the starting running back position to Donald Brown on Dec. 1, 2013.
We're not terribly optimistic that T-Rich will be able to turn it around. Other than the 11 rushing TDs, he wasn't very good (3.6 YPC) in Cleveland. And while some would blame the Indianapolis offensive line for Richardson's struggles (2.9 YPC), Donald Brown (5.3 YPC) ran just fine behind the same unit. Brown is a free agent and should be re-signed, but the Colts appear to be "all in" on Richardson after giving up a first round pick for him.
