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."
