(via Getty Image) So… what’s the deal with Trent Richardson? Remember back when he was at the University of Alabama and he was one of the greatest young running backs that we’d ever seen? Those were fun times. Hell, even last year he fooled us into thinking he was on the verge of fantasy GOD status with his 11 touchdowns and 900 rushing yards, which is pretty impressive for a rookie in Cleveland. But then the Browns suddenly traded him to the Colts and I, and many others, scoffed at such a notion. Except now the Browns front office looks like a pack of wild geniuses for salvaging any first round pick out of his seeming fantasy football worthlessness. He’s failed to top 100 yards at any point this season, and he’s only rushed for 60 yards once. I’m a huge opponent of the idea of settling for whatever you can get for a first round bust, especially this early in the season, but I think it’s time to move T-Rich and move on.
