INDIANAPOLIS -- Trent Richardsons new NFL home has all the features hes wanted. Rickey Jackson Jersey . The Colts expect their newest player to become a workhorse running back, grow alongside a young franchise quarterback and carry them into the playoffs for years to come. Its a big change from Clevelands perpetual rebuilding project. One day after the Browns called Richardson to say hed been dealt for a first-round draft pick in 2014, Richardson arrived to a locker room that had his new teammates hooting and hollering, a horde of reporters hanging on every word and the familiar sight of Browns fan Condoleeza Rice watching practice. "Its another chapter in my life and with that Im going to have a chip on my shoulder," Richardson said. "I am going to play football like I know how to play football. However it goes with the Browns, good luck to the Browns the rest of the season, but other than that, Ive got to be here playing football." The Colts (1-1) gave up a draft pick they hope will come at the end of the first round next year to obtain the 5-foot-9, 225-pound Alabama alum. Cleveland gave away three picks to move up one spot and take Richardson just last year. He never quite fit the newest offensive system in Cleveland. Indy now has a quarterback, Andrew Luck, and a running back, Richardson, who were both Heisman Trophy finalists less than 24 months ago and were ranked by most scouting departments as the best players at their positions coming out of college. Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has somehow corralled five of the top 100 players drafted in 2012 -- all of them on offence. Along with Luck and Richardson, the No. 1 and No. 3 overall selections, Indy also has tight ends Coby Fleener, a second-round choice, and Dwayne Allen and receiver T.Y. Hilton, third-round picks. Fleener, who turns 25 on Friday, is the oldest of the bunch. For Grigson, the deal was too good to pass up. He and Cleveland CEO Joe Banner, who worked together previously in Philadelphia, started talking early this week and it didnt take long for Grigson to work something out. Its his 16th trade since coming to Indy in 2012. "You always want to surround a great player like Andrew with weapons, and we had a need at running back," Grigson said. "So we went out and got one." They found a back that the Browns (0-2) gave up on after playing just 17 career games. Richardson rushed for 950 yards as a rookie despite playing most of the season with two broken ribs. This year, under new management, Richardson had only 31 carries for 105 yards. The back Hall of Famer Jim Brown once described as "ordinary" never demonstrated the explosiveness Cleveland new coaching staff wanted. Grigson and the Colts, who are transforming last years vertical game into a more balanced offence that features power running, didnt have the same scouting report. Coach Chuck Pagano referred to Richardson as a "rolling ball of butcher knives" and called him a perfect fit in this system. "All I know is, I got a couple texts from some players I used to coach and it was Wow, congrats and thank you," said Pagano, the Baltimore Ravens former defensive co-ordinator. "And you know why they said thank you, because hes out of the division. That tells you right there. Hes a game-wrecker." Over the past week, starting running back Vick Ballard (right knee), left guard Donald Thomas (quad) and Allen (hip) all landed on season-ending injured reserve. The trade overshadowed those losses and created an instant buzz around town and inside Indys locker room. Richardson will now get a crash course on the Colts offence and is likely to play this weekend at San Francisco. Its still unclear whether Richardson will start over Ahmad Bradshaw, who made his first start with Indy in Sundays 24-20 loss to Miami. But one thing is clear: Richardson is considered one of Indys cornerstones. "We did not bring him in here to, I guess, be the water boy on Sunday," Pagano said. "Hell be ready to roll." Richardson couldnt have asked for more. After trading his No. 33 jersey in for a white No. 34 practice jersey, he said the shock of being traded was starting to wear off and he promised to spend these next few nights pulling all-nighters with Indys playbook and getting comfortable. All he has to do now is fit into his new home. "People cant just stack nine in the box no more," he said. "You think youre going to stack nine in the box, Andrews got an arm for you and you got Reggie Wayne and T.Y. out there, and you got our tight ends that are going to work, too." Notes: After putting Allen on injured reserve, Indy promoted rookie receiver DaRick Rogers from the practice squad to the active roster and signed receiver Danny Coale to the practice squad. ... Pagano said linebacker Pat Angerer (knee) and safety Antoine Bethea (toe) were held out of practice Wednesday but were expected to return Thursday. Safety LaRon Landry (ankle) is listed as day-to-day. Pagano also said receiver David Reed (concussion) was a full participant in practice Wednesday and was feeling well Thursday. George Mira Jersey .C. -- Al Jefferson said he feels like hes playing the best basketball of his 10-year NBA career. Gordy Soltau Jersey . People familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Friday that arbitrator Fredric Horowitz could issue his decision this weekend. http://www.custompatriotsjersey.com/custom-o-j-simpson-jersey-large-1401f.html . -- Its been 21 years since Joe Gibbs Racing celebrated its only Daytona 500 victory.BEREA, Ohio -- Vince Young doesnt take anything for granted. Not after the road hes been down. Once of the NFLs rising stars before personal problems sidetracked the quarterbacks career, Young signed a one-year contract on Thursday with the Cleveland Browns. Although rusty, Young who hasnt played in a regular-season game since 2011, showed enough during a three-day tryout to get the deal. Its been a long climb back for Young, who wont celebrate with so much work to be done. "Theres no popping the champagne bottle," he said. The 30-year-old Young comes with an impressive resume after going 31-19 as an NFL starter and making two Pro Bowls. He was signed along with free agent QB Tyler Thigpen and linebacker Zac Diles shortly after the Browns completed their first minicamp under new coach Mike Pettine. This is another fresh start for Young, who spent part of the past two preseasons with Buffalo and Green Bay but hasnt appeared in a game since Dec. 18, 2011, for Philadelphia. He has endured financial problems, dealt with emotional issues and tried to balance his personal life while keeping his professional one afloat. Young is thankful for the new opportunity and plans to do all he can to convince the Browns that hes worth hanging onto for a while. After being offered a contract, Young told the Browns that instead of flying home to Texas, he planned to stay the weekend in Cleveland so he could become more acclimated with the teams playbook and to work out. "Right now I have my head down, just wanting to work and show the team, the organization what type of guy I am," Young said. "That was my whole focus and how much hard work I put in." Pettine said there were some moments over the past few days when Young looked like the Young of old. "He took off and ran for a first down, we just finished up a rack of third down plays here and you could tell hes very rusty," Pettine said. "I was just joking with him the other day that rust was falling off in large clumps, but he flashed a couplee of times. Ricky Watters Jersey. You dont realize how big he is until you stand next to him. "We talk about all these 6-foot, 5-11 quarterbacks in the draft and then he comes walking out and you say, Oh, thats what theyre supposed to look like." Young acknowledged there were moments he felt like himself, and others when he struggled. "There is definitely some rust on there," he said. "The biggest thing is I just want to get down to my playing shape, eating right and try to get a feeling with the team, what they do with their workouts and things like that. "I just want to be around the team, be around the coaches and show them the part that they never see, the hard work that I do put in. Thats what theyre really about to see now." Thigpen was out of the league last year after playing six seasons with Kansas City, Miami and Buffalo. Hes 1-11 as a career starter with 21 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. "Its a great opportunity," he said. "I thought for a while there that the door was going to close, but now that opportunity has opened back up. Its time to take advantage of it." Young and Thigpen will be penciled in on the depth chart behind Brian Hoyer, who looked good in his first on-field work since undergoing knee surgery in October. Pettine was pleased with Hoyers progress. He was limited to individual and 7-on-7 drills, and hopes to be cleared for more in June. "As far as his preparation, how he approached the practice field, how he interacted with the players, it was as we expected and then some," Pettine said. NOTES: The Browns have until Saturday to pick up the fifth-year, $5.5 million contract option on DT Phil Taylor for 2015. Taylor promised the teams decision will not affect how he plays this season. "Im still going to go out there and do what Ive got to do for the team," Taylor said. "Im still a Cleveland Brown and Im going to be a Cleveland Brown until Im not." ... WR Nate Burleson was excused from the final day of camp. ' ' '
