In a stunning early-morning trade, the Colts acquired running back Trent Richardson from the Browns on Wednesday. He is expected to step in as the starter, potentially as early as this week. Cleveland will get the Colts’ first-round draft pick in 2014.
Richardson was Cleveland’s first-round draft pick and the third overall pick, after Luck and RGIII, in the 2012 draft. In his rookie season he rushed for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 51 balls out of the backfield for another 367 yards and a twelfth score.
