The Colts needed running back help after Vick Ballard went down and they got their blockbuster on Wednesday trading for Browns running back and former top-five pick Trent Richardson.

Indy owner Jim Irsay whetted the appetites of many Wednesday afternoon when he started teasing on Twitter the possibility of a blockbuster trade. He was met with skepticism but he wasn't joking.

This is an absolutely STUNNING trade. Richardson is in his second year with the Browns ... or was. But the former Alabama star was also selected by the Browns under an old regime. He wasn't picked by Mike Lombardi and it's clear Cleveland is prepared to move in a different direction.
