Former Browns executive Mike Holmgren says he would have quit if they had traded Trent Richardson on his watch. Browns great Jim Brown would have loved to have seen Holmgren get fired after their falling out a few years ago. “Mike is not from Cleveland. I’m a Cleveland Brown,” Brown said, via CBS Sports. “So he gave me a choice of taking three dollars and doing a little dancing for him out there. I said, ‘Mr. Holmgren, I’m sorry… I don’t dance… become a mascot type of guy. And I cracked up but I wrote him a letter. And I stated those things, and I had a little humor with it because I knew ultimately I would probably be back because Cleveland is my home. I have great roots there and I love the people and the people love me.” Brown says Holmgren took advantage of former Browns owner Randy Lerner. “[Holmgren] had all his boys that were going to come in and take advantage of the kind of money that he could pay his guys and never really be there,” Browns said. “He took advantage of Randy

  • Although I really liked T. Richardson, as the RB for the Browns I don't know if it's me or the fact that earlier during pre-season he stated that he had hit the weight room and lost 10-15 pounds, in hopes of increasing his speed. After the first two games during the regular season I noticed a huge difference in his running style, trying to avoid tacklers, and no acceleration once he changed direction. In the first two games with the Browns Richardson averaged around 3.5 per carry. In his first game with the Colts, his average was about 3.2 ypc. The best thing that happened for Trent Richardson was being traded to a team like the Colts, where he can learn from a great NFL running back in Ahmad Bradshaw and in place the Browns acquire a first round draft pick giving them (2) for 2014 and regardless where the Browns end up this year 7-9 or better, package the draft picks together and take Bridgewater in the 1st round. Super Bowl bound in 2014!!!
