Heck the Browns could have been in position to pay his signing bonus as a roster bonus last year and so he would have been $1.3 mil for either team this year. Makes no difference to the value Indy is getting - it is all $1.3 mil.

If you are buying a chicken you don't care whether the seller got it for free or paid $100k thinking it laid golden eggs. Richardson remains a $1.3 mil chicken.
I have watched you often go to left field in a desperate ploy and effort to find something that will make sense to your point of view. A $1.3 mil chicken may be your best or worst depending on how you look at it.
