Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh says the team has an "unofficial agreement" with free-agent running back
Harbaugh told reporters at the NFL owners' meetings he's been exchanging texts with Richardson and expects to sign him. Richardson worked out for Baltimore last month and is working on getting in better shape.
The 25-year-old Richardson has been a disappointment since he was selected No. 3 overall in the 2012 draft out of Alabama. He was traded from Cleveland to Indianapolis just two games into his second season. Richardson was released by the Colts following the 2014 season and didn't play last year after he was cut by Oakland in training camp.
Richardson has averaged just 3.3 yards per carry and has run for 2,032 yards and 17 touchdowns in 46 career games.
Justin Forsett led the Ravens with 641 yards rushing in 2015. He played only 10 games because of injuries.
