To me, this makes no sense. They're rebuilding for the future by dealing a solid, proven RB that has a lot of remaining miles left. It's not like they traded a 10 year vet.
Guess we'll see how this turns out but this plan will affect the next decade of Cleveland Browns football...for better or worse. Joe Banner's job is also riding on this gamble.
I wonder how the franchise would like it if the fans collectively did the same thing (i.e. don't buy any more tickets).
I was surprised to hear about this move during my drive home. Pretty rare in season trade. The chances of Pittsburgh doing this are slim to none. But it would be interesting to see if they could go after a tackle. Ryan Harris is 2nd team for the Houston Texans. Started off in Denver as an effective RT, but is now listed as a LT for Houston. If he could move into Adams' spot, so Mike could go back to RT. That might be interesting.
It works in college but not so much in the pro's unless you have an OL that plays downhill.
This also applies to Big Ten RB's.... Mendenhall was the exception because he does have moves.. he just had ball control and Bin Laden issues.
I hope Bell breaks the Big 10 curse... we see what Ball is doing in Denver and it ain't much.
Based on what?
Richardson has 1,005 career yards and a 3.5 YPC.
Redman has 1,148 career yards and a 4.1 YPC.
Does this mean we can get a first for Isaac?
