Who won the Trent Richardson trade?

Trent Richardson made his Colts debut this weekend, scoring on his first rushing attempt...and then spent the rest of the afternoon being outplayed by Ahmad Bradshaw, but that was to be expected. Richardson was traded mid-week. He'll be given every opportunity to earn his paycheck in the run-heavy Colts offense.

Earlier in the week, the Colts traded a 2014 1st round draft pick for Richardson, the 3rd overall pick in the 2012 draft.

Those on the Colts side will say the team just added a franchise back for a price likely to be less than what the Browns paid just a year ago. Others will argue that the Browns selection of Richardson last year was a mistake, and that running back is the easiest position in the NFL to replace.

You could also argue that the trade could work out for both teams...or neither.

What do you think?
