Browns vs. Chargers: Jim Brown visits with Trent Richardson after win

Cleveland Browns legend Jim Brown met with current star running back Trent Richardson after the game to congratulate him on his solid performance in the team's win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Brown created a stir after draft day when he called Richardson "ordinary," but the two have worked to smooth out their relationship since then and Richardson told the News-Herald that he appreciated Brown talking to him after the game.

"It meant a lot (to have Brown waiting for him)," Richardson said. "Like I've said, he's an icon. Someone came in the trainer's room and said, ‘Jim Brown's out there for you.' I ran out there. Him just being here today shows what he thinks about us."

Brown told him to "keep doing what you're doing," which is something that could help the Browns turn their season around. On Sunday, Richardson rushed for 122 yards on 24 carries, his second time over the century mark this season. It was a marked turnaround from the team's Week 7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, in which Richardson rushed just eight times for eight yards.

On the season, the first-round pick from Alabama has rushed 127 times for 470 yards, good for just 3.7 yards per carry.
