NFL Breaking News: Trent Richardson traded to Colts for first round pick

The Cleveland Browns have announced that they have traded 2012 first round pick Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts.

“Trent’s a great player and we expect him to have success in this league,” said Browns CEO Joe Banner. “Right now, based on how we’re building this team for sustainable success, we’re going to be aggressive and do what it takes to assemble a team that consistently wins.”

Additionally, the Browns also announced that they are bringing to Cleveland for a physical RB Willis McGahee.

McGahee, a two-time Pro Bowler (2007, 2011), is 6-foot, 235-pound veteran in his 11th year out of Miami (Fla.). He has four 1,000-yard rushing seasons during a distinguished career.

You have to assume that Trent’s comments and disappointment with his playing time on third down had something to do with this move.

    But he was still praised for acquiring the picks before the Irving-Thompson draft.

  • James Workman

    Fair enough, my bad.

  • mgbode

    no, with our luck we’ll somehow manage to win 4 games and end up with the 5th QB in a 4QB draft class.

  • mgbode

    yeah, MAC schools are all offense and no defense, right? the opposite of our Browns.

  • mgbode

    the only top10 pick we have used at QB since ’99 has been Tim Couch and we gave him an expansion team to get beaten behind.

  • BenRM

    I’m going and I want to announce it. ANNOUNCEMENT!

  • mgbode

    I don’t remember him trading away the teams best offensive player 10 games into the NBA season though.

  • James Workman

    Pun fully intended.

  • James Workman

    That’s not an adequate sample size to convince me of anything.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Absolutely.

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    The Colts have the Luck literally and figuratively. It must be the horseshoe!

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Btw how’s Andy Reid doing out of Philadelphia?

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Still I don’t feel any better about a second attempt which seems inevitable at this point.

  • @TheDeePagel

    Announcing that you’re leaving as a fan? Ok. Bye.

  • @TheDeePagel

    That’s a fair point.

  • BenRM

    Thanks for saying bye @deepagel. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me

    The city of Cleveland needs to lockout the Browns. They should have gotten more than a late 1st round pick. What a bunch of bums.

  • @TheDeePagel

    Don’t mention it. The funny thing is, you will be back – that part is guaranteed.
