For Trent Richardson, it's the same old story -- and it could rob him a chance at rebooting his NFL career.
"Trent just needs to get healthy," Harbaugh said, via ESPN.com. "I think the workload and the amount of work it takes to be a world-class conditioned athlete is something that he's working on right now. That's what he needs to understand, and that's where he needs to get himself."
The Ravens waited until April 18 to sign Richardson because they wanted to see if he could get into acceptable shape and stay that way. Weight issues and injuries have haunted Richardson during an unproductive NFL career that has included stops with the Browns, Colts and Raiders. He spent last season out of football.
"When he gets himself (in shape), he's got talent," Harbaugh said. "I'm very certain he'll get there. And when he does, we'll be able to evaluate him."
