    Browns trade RB Trent Richardson to Colts for future first round pick

    WOW, didn't see this one coming.

    The Indianapolis Colts today acquired running back Trent Richardson in a trade with the Cleveland Browns in exchange for the Colts’ first-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.

    Richardson, 5-9, 225 pounds, has started all 17 games for the Cleveland Browns since being selected third overall by the Browns in the 2012 NFL Draft. For his career, he has totaled 298 carries for 1,055 yards and 11 touchdowns, while adding 58 receptions for 418 yards and one touchdown. In 2012, Richardson recorded 950 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns while posting three 100-yard rushing performances. He also caught 51 passes for 367 yards and one touchdown.

    In three seasons at the University of Alabama (2009-2011), Richardson helped the school capture two national championships in 2009 and 2011. He recorded 3,130 career rushing yards and 35 touchdowns on 540 attempts (5.8 avg.), while adding 68 receptions for 730 yards and seven touchdowns. He also returned 28 kickoffs for 720 yards with one touchdown.

    Looks like we'll have to setup a different gameplan come week 10

    I just don't really see why the Browns would agree to this.

    Most seem to think they're stockpiling picks for a top QB in 2014.

    It definitely makes sense in that regard. But it just feels like they are throwing out the baby with the Bridgewater.
    AvengerRam, HUbison and Nick like this.

    Too bad the Rams couldn't swoop in with one of our 1st round picks. Most likely a salary cap issue.

    Wow. Nicely done.

    Let's all hope the Redskins go 0-16 so that the Browns are forced to trade all those picks to the Rams to get the QB they desire.

    In response to the question... why didn't the Rams make an offer, it may simply be that the Rams didn't know that T-Rich was on the block. Its not as though the Browns announced it on Twitter.

    Re: Browns trade RB Trent Richardson to Colts for future first round pick

    But I think when a team is shopping a player, they connect with any team they believe could be a trading partner. Especially knowing that we would have a higher draft pick than the Colts, would have to assume we had the option to bid. Likely they put out there, "what will you give us for TR" and the Colt were the only one who threw out a 1st rounder. Perhaps we offered a 2nd.

    Plus there is the salary cap implication, and what college RB's will be available to us next year....AND probably the biggest factor, our coach is pretty stubborn, so likely he is not convinced yet that Richardson/Pead/Stacy/Cunningham isn't going to work. I'm not either, but wouldn't have minded if we pulled the trigger on this deal.

    This just reeks of the Browns giving up on the season after week 2. I mean who's his backup anyway? As if it didn't suck to be a Browns fan before.

    Or it could be simple a case of "Tanking for Teddy."
