The Browns front office never ceases to amaze me. Sorry this is in the wrong forum but it does affect the Steelers indirectly. WOW. Damn, why couldn't we have made that trade? ; )

Colts trade 2014 1st-round pick to Browns for Trent Richardson

Indianapolis Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay promised a "monster trade" on Twitter, and he delivered.

The Colts completed a blockbuster move Tuesday, trading a 2014 first-round draft pick to the Cleveland Browns for running back Trent Richardson, the team announced.

The Colts were in need of a running back after starter Vick Ballard suffered a torn ACL.

The Browns announced they are bringing in veteran running back Willis McGahee for a physical. If McGahee passes the physical Thursday, the Colts plan to sign him, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the move.

Thank God we got Dwyer back before the Clowns grabbed him. :wink02: Why didn't they ask us for Redman. We could have thrown in Dwyer with him. Then the Colts would have had our dynamic duo. :rofl:

[T]he Browns also announced that they are bringing to Cleveland for a physical RB Willis McGahee.

They're expected to sign McGahee as long as he passes the physical....

“Trent’s a great player and we expect him to have success in this league,” said Browns CEO Joe Banner. “Right now, based on how we’re building this team for sustainable success, we’re going to be aggressive and do what it takes to assemble a team that consistently wins.”

Maybe they also can trade Joe Thomas to the Broncos and bring in Max Starks as they try to "build for sustainable success" by seeking to overtake the Jags in the race for the #1 pick - typical Clowns move

I guess that Browns scout who was at the A&M game reported back that Johnny Football will be the savior of the franchise if they can get him

1. The Browns want a QB. If they hasn't just tanked their season, they had stockpiled enough picks to move up to #1. Now, they'll have the #1 (Bridgewater)... and enough firepower to move up for Clowney.

2. The Colts pick will be in the twenties.

3. They traded up for Richardson... and just got rid of him for a low R1 pick.

Brandon Weedon is crying about now. Dumb by the Browns - Richardson is their only offensive weapon of note, and by giving him to the Colts, they end up with a bottom half draft pick. Perhaps they know they'll suck so bad now that they'll end up picking in the top three anyway.

Blow worse than the Jaguars and get Bridgwater. 2 games into the season. That's their plan. It almost makes you feel sorry for their fanbase.


I said almost.

I think you guys are making the same mistake Cleveland is making right now. Let's not forget that Teddy Bridgewater is a Junior right now. He doesn't have to come out of college. In fact, it might be in his best interests to stay another year and head for the 2015 draft. Who's to say that he doesn't pull a Peyton Manning and stay another year after seeing he'll be headed to Cleveland?

The QB class has a pretty significant drop off in talent after him too. There isn't an RGIII to complement an Andrew Luck. After Bridgewater, it's probably Tajh Boyd. After Boyd you can throw in Mariota and Murray, with Manziel somewhere in the pile too. However, none of those guys deserve a number one overall selection. If the Browns are loading up for a Quarterback and Bridgewater stays another year, they've essentially fucked themselves.

sorry but Manziel will be the top pick. Forget the haters and talk of his height. If Vick, Brees, Wilson are tall enough so is he. He is as talented a QB that has ever played in college. Cleveland and Jacksonville are desperate to make a splash and be relevant again. Johnny does that from day one.

"Haters"

He's mechanically flawed with a terrible attitude and no deep ball. That's a number one overall pick to you?
