The Indianapolis Colts cut bait with Trent Richardson and now we know where T-Rich will attempt to do his Marshawn Lynch impression. The Oakland Raiders announced the signing on their Twitter page. The Raiders have signed free agent RB Trent Richardson. #WelcomeToTheFamily — OAKLAND RAIDERS (@RAIDERS) March 17, 2015 I won’t be actively rooting


Trent Richardson believes he can be the next Marshawn Lynch

Free agent running back Trent Richardson thinks he can be the next Marshawn Lynch. Yes, you read that correctly. After being released by the Indianapolis Colts last Thursday, Richardson is looking for a new team located in a place where he can revitalize his career—a career that has been very disappointing thus far—and believes his


Former No. 3 overall pick Trent Richardson released by Colts

Shurmur Richardson Weeden Heckert

Ah, you look at that picture and you think about what could have been. Former Browns No. 3 overall pick Trent Richardson was released by the Indianapolis Colts today, the team announced via press release. The running back from Alabama had a strong rookie year for the Browns in 2012, rushing for 950 yards and


The Colts suspension of Trent Richardson voids over $3.1 million


The tale of Trent Richardson gets stranger by the day. No, I’m not talking about him getting traded or his continual disappointment between the lines on an NFL field. I’m talking about his very standing in the league and with his current team, the Indianapolis Colts. Trent Richardson missed the Colts’ final two playoff games


A Browns-centric look at the NFL Conference Championships

Will Gibson/WFNY

Ihope you’re sitting down: The Cleveland Browns did not make the NFL playoffs this year. A shocker, I know. It looked like they might sneak in for a minute, but a December swoon saw the Browns finish 7-9, which, to be fair, was their best record in seven years. Again, Browns fans could only watch


Cleveland Browns vs. Indianapolis Colts: Behind the Box Score

Brian Hoyer Cleveland Browns

Brian Hoyer struggled, Billy Cundiff missed a gimme, and the Cleveland Browns defense was world class. Add it all up and it equals a one point win for Indianapolis. Despite two defensive touchdowns and holding the Colt’s high powered offense in check, Cleveland’s offense crippled the team, allowing Andrew Luck enough of a window to


Better Back: Trent Richardson or Isaiah Crowell?

A year ago Cleveland said “good riddance” to Trent Richardson, collecting a first round pick in exchange for his 3.5 yards-per-carry average. Instead of letting bygones be bygones and Trent fading into the obscurity that swallows the Indianapolis Colts’ running back position, Browns fans kept Richardson alive, collectively taking to twitter to bask in each


Did Trent Richardson trash the Colts offensive line?

Trent Richardson Indianapolis Colts Cleveland Browns

It’s a big week of NFL football for the Cleveland Browns as many former players come to the lakefront as members of the Colts. The Colts hired Rob Chudzinski as a special assistant to the head coach. They recently signed Josh Cribbs. They’ve got former Browns safety Mike Adams. And of course, there’s a former Browns


NFL trade deadline might be a lost cause

Ray Farmer Cleveland Browns NFL Trade Deadline

You get the feeling that the NFL would love to pump up their trade deadline, but as Greg Garber points out at ESPN, reluctance rules the day. It’s the only thing in a nearly 365-day NFL year that the league hasn’t been able to turn into an event. There are some examples of deals that


Joe Banner discusses Brian Hoyer and trading Trent Richardson

Joe Banner Cleveland Browns

We’ve already discussed Joe Banner’s Twitter account on these pages. Many still won’t even believe it’s the real deal, preferring to assume like many other accounts that @JoeBanner13 is a fake. Anyway, this morning Mr. Banner recounted what it was like one year ago today when he traded Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. a


Is this Trent Richardson’s last chance to prove he’s not a bust?


This season marks Trent Richardson’s last chance to claim he isn’t an NFL draft bust. While many consider him an unmitigated bust already (“Two yards per carry!”), he’s still a physical specimen that will make just about any coaching staff think they can work with him. And there are some mitigating factors for his struggles


What would it look like if the Browns traded for Mike Wallace?


There was a sense of relief that the Cleveland Browns didn’t sign Mike Wallace last off-season after the details of his contract emerged. The fact is, as badly as the Cleveland Browns needed help at receiver, it was an absurdly large contract. How absurd? Now that there’s been a shakeup in the Dolphins front office


D’Qwell Jackson follows Chud, T-Rich to Indianapolis Colts


The Browns were kind to give D’Qwell Jackson a chance to sell himself around the NFL and make the best choice for himself. As it turns out, the best choice was in Indianapolis where Jackson is reported to be pulling a 4-year deal worth $22 million ($11 million guaranteed) with the Colts. Jackson follows former


Cleveland Browns say farewell to their leader, release D’Qwell Jackson


Once upon a time I thought that D’Qwell Jackson was going to be cut by Joe Banner for financial reasons. Now it appears that the financial reasons were good enough for Ray Farmer as well. Mary Kay Cabot reports that the Browns have said goodbye to the team’s long-tenured linebacker and leader after eight seasons


Indianapolis Colts hire Rob Chudzinski as special assistant

"Back-handed? Really?"

Former Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski will be joining the Indianapolis Colts as a special assistant, the team announced on Saturday. The Browns fired Chudzinski, 45, on Dec. 29 after their final game of the season. Cleveland eventually replaced him with Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Over in Indianapolis, Chudzinski will join the


How can the Browns improve their rushing attack for 2014?

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Cleveland Browns

Hey, you guys know me by this point. Any chance I get to talk about the Trent Richardson trade… Kidding. Kidding. I do want to talk about running the football, however. More specifically, how the Cleveland Browns might go about doing it in the future. This obviously doesn’t include Trent Richardson, but the Browns will need


Making the case for the Cleveland Browns and Johnny Manziel

It’s a divisive topic. Every time anything hits the WFNY Facebook page regarding Johnny Manziel, there’s an immediate split among fans who love the idea of Johnny Manziel becoming a Cleveland Brown and those who are as opposed to it as if Johnny Manziel is a fierce combination of Ryan Leaf, Mark Sanchez, Michael Vick


The Trent Richardson Trade — WFNY’s Top 10 Cleveland Sports Stories of 2013: No. 2

If you thought that 2012 was one crazy year in the world of Cleveland Sports, 2013 proved that there is rarely a dull moment. There were good times and bad, hirings and firings, wins and losses, and appearances in postseasons and courtrooms. As the year comes to a close, like we have done the last


Do you want the Browns to lose for the draft? – WFNY Roundtable


Craig: It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, not for TD who prefers March Madness, but I digress. The holidays are here and it’s a confusing time to be a Browns fan. In the middle of fan appreciation week, there are lots of fans out there who probably don’t want the Browns to


For now, belief in Joe Banner overshadows Browns wins and losses

Joe Banner

One of the most interesting aspects of the 2013 Cleveland Browns is that despite the losses on the field, I’m still very satisfied with the organizational structure that’s been built in Berea. The organizational structure they’ve put in place is by far the most comprehensive of any I can remember since 1999, and that starts
