07:12 AM ET 09.19 | A new dynamic duo? In the beginning, there was Peyton and Edge. Now ... Andrew and Trent? If Trent Richardson is everything the Indianapolis Colts believe him to be, this will be an inspired and aggressive trade that will make them contenders for years to come. "There's so much to like," Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson told The Indianapolis Star after a breathless day of awaiting word from Browns executive Joe Banner. "There's a reason why (Richardson) was taken third overall." ... What's not to like? The Colts may have found Edgerrin James' successor in exchange for a draft choice that figures to be somewhere in the teens or even 20s, depending on how the season goes. Granted, there are still questions about Richardson. In one year and two games, he still hasn't blown anybody's doors off.

"There's a reason why (Richardson) was taken third overall."

And a reason why Ryan Leaf was taken #2, and Charles Rogers taken #2, blah, blah, blah.

He hasn't blown anybody's doors off? Nobody would or could on that team.

Browns traded 4 picks to move up to get Richardson in 2012 and now they got rid of him for 1 first rounder only? Did the Browns org know Trent Richardson had a better rookie season than Ray Rice? Not much patience huh?

It will be interesting to see what a dangerous passer does to a defenses ability to stop Trent Richardson.

How ANYONE could be a Browns fan is beyond me.

I don't think the Browns organization knows much of anything. Drafting Weeden was definitely questionable. Even though they are starting to stockpile draft picks there is no guarantee they will know what to do with them anyway.

The Browns continue to amaze me.......Tradng Richardson was not stupid but own right dumb and stupid.......he will excell in Indy, which is now moving up the ladder and the Browns well they fell off the ladder.

Richardson may never be all that, but he's definitely better than what we saw in Cleveland.

September 19, 2013  08:18 AM ET

And with getting another 1st round draft pick next year they will have the 1st overall and 1 in the late 20's.........Manzel to the Browns? You know thee drafting a QB........It happens every other year.

Is Richardson damaged goods?

I have a feeling he's going to be better, than just average, as a Colt.

True that! It's where careers go to die!

The question is whether Richardson has NFL RB speed, or was he just a beneficiary of Alabama's strong offensive line? We'll see now.

Define NFL RB speed?

This headline from the Bleacher Report sums it up pretty good - Trent Richardson Trade: It's the Same Old Pathethic Cleveland Browns

If you have a good offensive line and know how to read your blocks you can have success. Emmitt Smith wasn't blessed with great speed and he had a 'decent' career.

Ditto! RB needs vision and patience. WR needs SPEED and good hands.
