NFL player Trent Richardson’s family blew $1.6 million of his money in less than a year

Running back Trent Richardson helped Alabama win two national championships and was the third pick in the NFL draft in 2012. But he lost millions of dollars and is now out of the league, in part, he says, because he was so stressed about taking care of his family and friends financially.

This is all depicted in an ESPN E:60 episode, during which the network talks extensively with Richardson about his career and his finances.

The 26-year-old Richardson grew up in Pensacola, Fla. His mom raised him and his siblings and didn’t have a lot of money. When he signed a four-year $20.5 million contract with the Cleveland Browns, he bought a six-bedroom house in Cleveland for $825,000 and rented his mom a house there, too.
