Running Back Prospect Trent Richardson Wants Him Some Ray Lewis

We're fairly certain that if we asked ten Bengals fans if they'd draft Alabama running back Trent Richardson (if he fell to No. 17 of course, duh.), seven wouldn't hesitate to slobber all over their bibs while the other three would briefly hesitate because they're not so sure about drafting a running back in the first round. However it might be Richardson that would want to play for the Bengals. You're so going to click the "Continue reading this post" link, aren't you?

It's not so much that Richardson specifically said anything about playing for the Bengals. Rather it's his desire to take out one of the league's all-time linebackers in Ray Lewis.

TR: I'm not saying Ray Lewis won't take me out, but I want to see him in the hole. I love Uncle Ray to death. But why would you stand down? 43 minutes ago via web · Reply · Retweet · Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Depending on how much he wants to take on Ray, there's always a good chance that he'd welcome a Cincinnati selection. Guaranteed to play twice a year, and guaranteed to knock some heads. And Cincinnati makes the most sense. Obviously Pittsburgh has as many issues with their own roster they need to address, plus Rashard Mendenhall in the backfield. And who the hell wants to go to Cleveland?

Cincinnati it is.
