    Browns trade Trent Richardson

    In last year's draft, the Cleveland Browns traded four picks to move up ONE spot for Trent Richardson. Today, they trade him to the Colts for a first round pick that's likely to be in the twenties.

    I just.... I don't even know. Thank the good Lord I'm a Bengals fan (growing up, I never thought I'd be able to utter those words).

    This sort of thing can happen when new ownership/management takes over, although it usually happens during the offseason. They get an extra #1, they get even worse in the meantime... definitely indicates they're not going to let Jacksonville have the first overall pick without a fight, if that's what you'd call it.

    I don't think it will be a competition. Jacksonville might rival the Houston Astros for best minor league team in all of professional sports. I'd say the Browns will have their choice of Touchdown Teddy or Clowney, whoever Jacksonville passes on.

    Browns are stockpiling picks, they must be in love with the 2014 draft. Have fun selling that to season ticket holders.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I don't really see it as a bad deal, I don't think Richardson is an all world back waiting to happen.

    The cost of acquiring TRich is moot now.

    I think they got fair market value for him. Perhaps more (many people think its foolish to use a first rounder on a RB unless he is AP). For whatever reason, he has not impressed so far. Gonna have to let this play out.

    As a Colts fan I can't say I'm super impressed by this move. Again, unless he's AP I'm not sure a back is going to be the difference in being a good team and a championship team.

    I think the problem with this trade is that Browns management appears to be telling the players and fans they're already throwing in the towel and thinking about next season, even when it's not your intent. You never want the players or fans to think that. This kind of stuff reminds me of the dark days of the Bengals, when players couldn't wait to get out of town when their contracts were up and the games were blacked out because they couldn't sell out.

    This doesn't strike me as a next year move. I'd think it has to go deeper than that. Richardson has played one season in the NFL and many have called him the 2nd most talented back in the NFL behind AP. I'd have thought he would still be the centerpiece to a next year strategy.

    There has to be more to this than meets the eye. The Cleveland brass had to have soured on richardson and this makes me wonder what they know that the rest of us don't. This just seems really suspicious to me.

    I think your overall point about the FO souring on him is valid.

    But the guy has less than a 3.5 YPC average for his career and has a career long rush of less than 40 yards.

    As we sit here today, I see no way anyone calls him the 2nd best back in the league. But we will see.

    That may be right. Admittedly, I hadn't watched him much but I have heard plenty of pundits heap that kind of praise on him when it comes to talent. But maybe it's more hype than reality.

    This was a pretty good read on it. Maybe he really is just average.
