Montario Hardesty comes into this Browns training camp in the best shape in his playing career, including high school and college. The Browns head coach had nothing but praise for Hardesty who shined in the Browns first padded practice session. Hardesty ran the football with more conviction than the team has seen since he has been here. People have named Montario as the odd man out with the addition of first round draft pick Trent Richardson. The Browns are loaded this off-season with talented running backs.
Hardesty who has had injuries in the past took the entire off-season to work on getting healthy. Montario traveled the country to work on his training and to find the health professionals that would help the Browns running back to get his body game time ready. Hardesty has busted his butt, he is ready and now he is going to make the team notice the talents he has. In Sunday’s first full padded practice Montario Hardesty poured it on.
Last season Hardesty came into a shortened training camp due to the NFL lock-out at less than 100%. Montario was UN-able to get the proper rehab needed to come off of his injuries because of the lockout, the result was having a Montario Hardesty that wasn’t ready for prime time playing at far less than 100%. Due to the lack of rehab and no access to team trainers or medical staff Hardesty fell victim to further injuries.
This is going to be Montario Hardesty’s season. If the Cleveland Browns give Hardesty the chance to prove himself, he will show the NFL that he is back, and this time he is back healthy.
