Former Tide star Richardson traded

BEREA, OH -

The Cleveland Browns have traded running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts in a surprise move less than two years after drafting him in the first round.
    
The Browns (0-2), struggling on offense under new coach Rob Chudzinski, announced the move Wednesday afternoon. They will also bring in veteran running back Willis McGahee for a physical.
    
Cleveland receives a first-round pick in next year's draft for Richardson, who has struggled with injuries since a standout career at Alabama. He was the No. 3 overall pick in 2012.
    
"Trent's a great player and we expect him to have success in this league," Browns CEO Joe Banner says.
    
McGahee is a two-time Pro Bowler (2007, 2011) with four 1,000-yard rushing seasons.
