The Indianapolis Colts needed to bolster their backfield, and they certainly did so by making the biggest NFL trade splash in recent memory on Wednesday.

ESPN insider Adam Schefter was first to report that the Colts have traded a first-round draft pick to acquire Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson:

Filed to ESPN: Browns RB Trent Richardson to Indy for Colts' first-round pick.

The Colts later confirmed the move via their official website, noting that the pick will come in the 2014 draft.
