According to media reports, the Cleveland Browns have traded 2012 first-round pick Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first-round pick.
Taken third overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, Richardson set franchise records with 950 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns on the ground, yet he averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, a tribute to a weak offensive line, he also had a longest run of 32 while picking up 36 first downs.
He also caught 51 passes for 367 yards, averaging 7.2 yards per reception, found the end zone once and picked up 18 first downs.
Richardson’s 2013 season has been a struggle so far as he averaged just 3.4 yards per carry during the first two games of the season, picked up just 105 yards rushing and has yet to score a touchdown. The schedule doesn’t get easy for the Colts and will face the defenses of the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans twice.
Needing a running back, the Browns are reportedly in the process of landing two-time Pro-Bowl running back and current free agent running back Willis McGahee who played in 10 games with the Broncos in 2012 rushing for 731 yards on 167 carries and had four touchdowns.
The signing of McGahee will happen if he passes his physical as tweeted by Jason La Canfora.
