Colts trade for Trent Richardson

Took a look at Trent's numbers in my workbook, he will have a dead money hit of $3,335,250 for 2013, savings of $1.321M, but take a cap hit of $6,670,500 in 2014. He was to make $5,587,250 in cap next year.

Wonder why they would do this. Last checked on NFLPA site, they had $24.2M in cap room right now. And they must spend 90% of the cap, There at $113,408,437 right now before the trade. However they carried over $14M, so they may be at the 90% limit, which is based off of the $123M cap, not adjusted cap. Which is 123M + 14.2M.

What a weird trade. Richardson is a decent back, but nothing particularly special. Why the Browns would trade him after 1 reasonably productive season is beyond me, and why the Colts would trade a first for him is beyond me too. I think the Colts got a pretty crappy deal in this. How many backs that are as good or better than Richardson, and less injury prone, come out of round 3 and later? Quite a few.

This! What made him worth giving up a first for?

Im with you here. They should have gotten a little more. Trent was #3 over all two years ago, no way that the Colts would be picking that high. First and a Third or a Fourth, just to dump him for a late first doesnt seem to make a hell of a lot of sense. But with this, the Browns are done, they were bad before, now worse. 2-14 if they are lucky, but that may be the plan. High first with their pick (qb), then a wr with the Colts pick. Makes sense I guess, but if I were a Browns fan, I'd be angry as hell.

Browns source says Richardson just wasn't a great fit, so getting a 1 was great value. Cleveland now has 2 1's, a 2, 2 3's and 2 4's in '14.

It is funny how some in the "media" are questioning the Brown long term plans...

Based on this move it seems like the Browns realize they are going to need a new QB and a lot more to compete.

There future plan is clear, build through the draft. Getting a first in return is a good move.

They are also signing Mcgahee. Although that can't cost much.


Better put a link in before I get hounded.

By trading RB Trent Richardson to Indianapolis, Browns now have two picks in 2014 draft in rounds 1, 3, 4. QB of future on the way...


hopefully they draft a Qb under the age of 40 this time

No way would I trade a 1st pick for any RB. See Frank Gore 3rd round. Colts are morons IMO, Alfred Morris 6th round. And your damn right I would trade away any RB for a 1st round pick.
Wow, one season and their 3rd overall pick is already gone for what will likely be a pick in the 20s. That franchise is a total mess.

I want to feel sorry for their fans, but when I visited one of their forums before the game we played in 2011 the tone of it was like this:

"OMG WE'RE PLAYING THE TEAM FROM THE GAY AREA. YOUR TEAM IS FULL OF GAYS BECAUSE SAN FRANCISCO IS ALL GAY! WHAT A BUNCH OF f*gGS!! YOU'RE FROM SAN FRANCISCO WHICH MEANS YOU'RE GAY!! GAY GAY GAY GAY GAYYY!!!!"

That's really all they talked about, I'm not even kidding, with pictures of rainbows and everything. I laughed at their ignorance and kind of lost all concern in anything Cleveland after that lol.
