The Cleveland Browns shocked the NFL on Wednesday by dealing the No. 3 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Trent Richardson, to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first-round draft pick. The backlash from Browns fans has been, well, as you would expect it after “giving” up in their eyes on the player that was supposed to be the face of their franchise for the next eight to 10 years.
There has already been plenty of analysis by those in the national media on the trade—mostly great for the Browns—so I will not bore you with more reasons why this move should be applauded by a front office that is not afraid to make a bold move. In fact, if Richardson would have continued to play the way he has over the first two games of the season—albeit with just 31 carries in two games—the team may have been lucky to grab a second or third-round pick a few weeks from now.
With Richardson now gone, the Cleveland Browns front office has already kicked the wheels on finding another back to add to the rotation. ...

Last night, when I heard about the trade via the same medium as Trent Richardson himself I was shocked, like all of you. Those who read my piece on how Richardson would shine in Norv Turner’s system know I loved his set up in Cleveland. Instead, he’s in Indy where they are working on collecting the entire set of top 5 picks from the 2012 draft. They only have two, of course,...

Like most people, I was shocked to hear the Browns had traded Trent Richardson, the third overall pick of the 2012 draft, to the Indianapolis Colts. I didn't think much could surprise me in this league anymore, but you just don't see trades like this happen these days. Especially with such a marquee, so-called franchise player like this, only two games into his second season...
The 0-2 Cleveland Browns have made a statement that they don’t plan on competing during the 2013 season. The team, which has a new front office and coaching staff, waited just two weeks into the regular season to shake things up. Shake things up they did. The Browns traded second year running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the Colts 2014 first round...
What else should we expect from the Cleveland Browns? We all knew that they weren’t going to be good this year with the 40 year old sophomore quarterback, but if they could have finished out the season with a bad record and drafted a good quarterback, they would have been contenders in the AFC North in a couple years. But the Browns front office had vastly different things...
Tweet Wednesday evening, the Cleveland Browns shocked the sports world by trading 2012 NFL draft third overall pick Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first round draft pick. Despite some early season struggles, Richardson was widely regarded as arguably the team’s best offensive player. The trade got the Browns fan base so […]
With the Browns trading Trent Richardson today to the Colts for a 2014 #1 pick, it says a great deal about what they thought of him. The team, under the previous regime, spent the #3 overall pick last season on him, and they just dumped him for a pick that will likely be in the late teens or the 20's. While Richardson battled injuries and ran behind a bad offensive line, he...
In one of the most shocking in-season trades in NFL history, sophomore running back Trent Richardson has been dealt from the Cleveland Browns to the Indianapolis Colts.
Only 16 months ago, Richardson entered the league as the most highly-touted rookie back since Adrian Peterson, but there's a new regime in Cleveland now -- one that has zero ties to that Richardson selection...
This trade the Cleveland Browns made shipping Trent Richardson off to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first round pick doesn't bother me because I'm just more of a Tribe fan and a baseball guy more than I follow football. On the surface, it looks like a solid trade for both teams, because of their current status regarding being close to winning.
Then, I wondered how I...
