Chuck Pagano: It’s an important offseason for Trent Richardson

The Colts kick off their offseason program on Monday and it promises to be a big one for running back Trent Richardson. Richardson’s in-season arrival in a trade with the Browns cost the Colts a first-round pick and got them a back who wound up being benched in favor of Donald Brown near the end of the season. The Colts have maintained faith in Richardson and the back said after...

Colts still stressing importance of Trent Richardson

Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck & the Burden of a Ragtag Backfield

Here’s a stat for you: The Indianapolis Colts averaged 108.9 yards per game on the ground last season. Quarterback Andrew Luck accounted for 23.6 of those yards, so the totals without him would be 85.3 yards per game, which would be “good” for 28th in the NFL. And this segues into the current state of Luck’s backfield. It’s his backfield because, grimly, he is far and away...

Why the Indianapolis Colts should trade down in the draft

  Simply put, the Indianapolis Colts are short on draft picks as it is. And it doesn’t make sense to sacrifice more of them, in one of the most talented drafts the NFL has seen in a while. The Colts have only 5 draft picks, none of which are in the first round. That pick was traded to the Cleveland Browns for Trent Richardson. And trading future picks to get back into the first...

Can Trent Richardson and Pep Hamilton finally click this season?

Entering his second season as a Colt, a lot is being expected from last season’s big trade for Trent Richardson that left Indianapolis without a first-round pick in the upcoming draft.
