Eddie George

Trent is Lucky

The Browns Dumped Him

No offense to Cleveland, but Trent Richardson is in a better place now ... and the Browns probably did him a huge favor when they unloaded their star player -- this according to another former first round draft pick, Eddie George.

Eddie says the Browns' decision to trade away Richardson -- their first round pick from a year ago -- was "shocking to me. They went up and got him, and now they're reneging on the draft pick."

But Eddie adds ... Trent should be excited 'cause, well ... he's playing with a winner now.

"They might have done him a favor actually. Sending him with Andrew Luck ... I think he's in a good situation there."

Eddie also talks about how the Browns pick up the pieces -- perhaps drafting Johnny "Football" Manziel -- and even explains why this is actually a GOOD time to be a Browns fan.

Interesting take.

I live in Cleveland and I agree 100 percent. Cleveland, Ohio home of no jobs, crime and will always be a bridesmaid when it comes to sports and everything else. I would love to be picked by someone for a career anywhere but in this hell since there is nothing here to be offered even to a well educated person.

Good for Trent. Eddie is right, he's in a much better place - a team that's already a winner, not one that will be rebuilding for the future during his prime years. Running Backs don't have a very long life in the NFL, he's definitely coming out on top with this trade.

Truth    

Eddie George is a POS bust himself. A lot he knows.

Browns made the right move. Richardson wasn't an elite back and they weren't going to win anything with him. They sold high after the previous regime made the mistake of drafting him.
