    Let's hear what ya got to say about the Browns trading Trent richardson to Indy for a 1st round draft pick in 2014.

    My personal take:

    The Browns have not had a 1000 yd rusher since ernest byner in 1984 and Trent was one of their only few weapons. They tend to draft like pure idiots. So I doubt that having 2 first round picks in 2014 will yeild them the ammo to build franchise players. If they didnt draft so poorly, they might have a better shot at winning something. Indy on the other hand got a better deal IMO. They got a RB who they needed due to injuries. They got a guy who fits in their scheme better. Does Indy need to address any type of desperate 1st round need in 2014 now? No they don't. Yes, reggie Wayne is getting older, but a damn good WR can be had in later rounds of the draft. They don't need a QB, they wont need a RB now......they can wait till round 2-3-4-5 to address any other needs.

    The first part of your take speaks volumes.

    He has been on the team for 2 seasons and hasn't gotten 100o yards. He averaged 3.6 yards per carry which is 36th or 37th in the league.

    He is a nice player to have on an already good offense. Basing the offense around him is caveman football and obviously has not worked out for the Browns. Alabama also puts a lot of wear and tear miles on their running backs. Richardson is barely 22 years old and has to have the body of a 26-27 year old rb. Even lacy seems like he has some miles on him and he is a rookie.

    Good trade for both teams.

    yeah, good point about the wear and tear....I didn't even think about that. Yeh, he got some serious mileage put on him at Alabama.
