Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson received a vote of confidence from former MVP running back Shaun Alexander.
Former Seattle Seahawks running back Shaun Alexander won the 2005 MVP award after rushing for 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns and helping lead the Seahawks to their first Super Bowl trip.

Alexander played college football at Alabama, and he expressed his optimism for the future of Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson.
“I wish I had Trent’s number. I don’t have it, and if he’s reading this, give me a call, Trent — but I think I know what he’s going through,” Alexander said to Yahoo! Sports.
Alexander went on to say that Richardson is a special talent since he was able to succeed at Alabama, and his best years are ahead of him.
Richardson has struggled since having a promising rookie season, and he was entirely wiped out of the Colts offense in the playoffs in favor of an undrafted rookie in Dan Herron.
However, he has only been in the NFL for three seasons. He may have to find work with a different team though since he is due a $3.18 million base salary.
