Jim Brown Calls Trent Richardson "Ordinary"

The greatest Cleveland Brown and best running back in the history of the NFL, Jim Brown, visited ESPN's First Take this morning and is making the media rounds today with plenty of press looking for opinions on tonight's NFL Draft. The outspoken Brown of course weighed in on Cleveland's options tonight with the No. 4 pick, and he didn't have the nicest things to say about the potential of Alabama's Trent Richardson.

"I'm not overwhelmed with it," Brown said of the idea that the Browns could take Richardson. "The problem is that he's ordinary. I think he's ordinary."

Brown, of course, has a bit of a frosty relationship with the franchise right now and is not the No. 1 fan of Mike Holmgren's front office. The comments don't come completely out of left field.
