Trent Richardson admitted he doesn't know the difference in rules between the NFL and CFL, but the running back doesn't believe it'll make a difference once he touches the field as a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

"I know if you put a pigskin in my hand, football in my hand, I'm ready to run, I'm ready to play and I'm ready to do what I do best - get in the end zone and probably run somebody over, a player or two," the former NFL No. 3 overall pick said at his introductory press conference, according to Mark Inabinett of

"It is what it is. At the end of the day, I'm here to play football. I don't know if it's much to get used to other than playing football."

Richardson, 27, hasn't appeared in a competitive game since 2014. He signed with Saskatchewan on Tuesday, two months after he appeared to strike an agreement with the club, only for it to fall apart at the last second.

The former Alabama star played three NFL seasons, spending most of them with the Indianapolis Colts. He had his most productive campaign as a rookie, rushing for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns, though he only averaged 3.6 yards per carry.
