    1st round pick

    How long until he gets injured again?

    Insane!!! What does it say about TRich, that the Browns were willing to deal him for a mid first rounder.

    Runningbacks just aren't worth high picks anymore. Quite the gamble by the Colts.

    I still don't know why they drafted early a 27 year old qb a couple of years go

    They have 2 picks in rounds 1,3 and 4... should be able to stock up a few positions, not just qb.

    Awww, man. Sucks for us, sucks for my fantasy team.

    Very smart move by the Browns, IMO, as running backs are a commodity now.

    A bit early for the Colts, who need to upgrade their lines.

    This could be huge for the Colts - if only they had a good O-Line... I don`t know, I am pretty unsure what to think about this trade. It makes the Colts better, and we know what T-Rich can do (something that can`t be said about 1st round draft picks), but it is a hefty price. They finally got their next Edge and if he can stay healthy, he will help them a lot.

    Asinine.

    Who cares if the Browns are stockpiling picks? What gives anyone any indication that they'll use them well?

    Luck and Richardson, eh? I'm sure Watt and Cushing will be up to the task. They damn well better be.

    What exactly has he done in the NFL? Honestly I'd rather take the unknown 1st round pick.

    Richardson has had VERY pedestrian numbers so far in his short career.

    This looks like the Colts are desperate.

    Hmmm... this guy was supposed to be a cornerstone of a rebuilding Browns team... WTH??

    Something's up.

    do we have spies that haunt any Browns' msg boards??

    Remember that he plays for the Browns - they are playing from behind a lot, and you don`t run the ball when the other team is up 20 points. But 11 TDs is not pedestrian for a rookie, and he showed a lot of promise. His 3.6ypc average might not look like that much, but it is alright for a rookie.

    This trade makes me wonder what we could get for Ben Tate, because honestly when he's healthy and his mind is right, I like him a lot more than Trent Richardson.

    950 yards, 11 rushing TDs and 51 receptions for almost 400 yards and a TD is pretty damn nice for a rookie. Especially one with an overall garbage offense in Cleveland.

    Trent Richardson is in elite company...only three
    rookie RBs ever with 250+ carries and 3.6 ypc or
    less. (Ricky Williams, Errict Rhett)

    Man. Lol! Nice job ponies!

    He had a lot better offensive line in Cleveland than what he's going to have in Indy.. There have been other backs who played on crap offenses and could post more than just 3 100 yard games and better than a 3.6 YPC average. He's a bruiser, but can't hit the long ball. Reminds me of a richer man's Ron Dayne. I think he can help them, but he isn't worth a 1st round pick in a trade.
