INDIANAPOLIS - Trent Richardson remembers the day he walked through the front doors of Clevelands training facility for the firs Antworten

INDIANAPOLIS - Trent Richardson remembers the day he walked through the front doors of Clevelands training facility for the first time. Nike Free Wholesale China . He was wearing the suit he had on when the Browns called his name with the third pick in the 2012 draft.Pat Shurmur, the head coach of the Browns at the time, met him at the door with a big smile on his face, Richardson recalled.It was one of those feelings that I didnt think I would ever be playing with another team, he said. I thought I would always be there and it would be the last team I ever played for. But it happened like it happened.The Colts acquired the running back from the Browns on Sept. 18, 2013, for a first-round draft pick — a move that shocked Richardson. Now, he and three other Colts players are headed to Cleveland this Sunday for a game against a team, and franchise, they know well.Return specialist Josh Cribbs, who joined the Colts last month as a free agent, signed with the Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2005. Safety Mike Adams played for the Browns for five seasons and DQwell Jackson was drafted by the team in 2006 before he suffered two season-ending injuries.Heck, Colts coach Chuck Paganos first four years in the league as an assistant were in Cleveland.Cribbs left Cleveland after the 2012 season with a handful of records, including the all-time franchise marks in kickoff returns, kickoff return yards, and return touchdowns. Jackson is looking forward to the opportunity to face his former team, but says there wont be any time to spend with friends and former teammates.Im not going to change what I do, Jackson said. In the off-season, if I go back, Ill have dinner with some guys, but right now its a business trip and thats the only thing thats on my mind.For Richardson, its different.What he thought would be a long and successful career in Cleveland has been everything but what he expected. Things havent been the same since the Colts acquired him last year and now Richardson is looking for a breakout game this week against the team that drafted him — and traded him.They gave up on me, Richardson said in a conference call with Browns media on Wednesday. Im going to go into this game like its my last.Richardson has struggled to move the ball in Indy, and the Colts have been criticized for the move and questioned for sticking with the former Alabama star.Pagano made it clear the Colts plan to rely on Richardson as their starter.Theres going to be good days and theres going to be bad days, Pagano said. Hes had some days that have been very, very productive and some tough days.Richardson totalled 12 yards on eight carries against Washington last week. He had 42 yards against Jacksonville the week before, and finished with zero yards on six carries against New England on Nov. 16.Lack of productivity? Richardson sees it more as defences focused on him so much that he cant get into a groove.You know what? People have just been stacking the box, he said. I havent been getting the looks that I was getting earlier in the season. Now that Ahmad (Bradshaw) is down, people are counting on me running the ball. I havent been getting all of the same looks as everybody else.Richardson says that sometimes defences are thrown off when they think hes going to run the ball, but Andrew Luck decides to pass instead.When it comes down to it, I want to say that Ive been doing my job, Richardson said. Anytime I go in with play-action, somebodys wide open. If theyre trying to stop by and Andrew Lucks having a good day or (Daniel Herron) is having a good day, Im doing good because theyre distracted by me.___AP Sports Writer Tom Withers contributed to this report.

Algeria led 3-0 at halftime, but withstood a stronger South Korean second half performance to claim its first World Cup win since 1982 and move into second place in Group H with one match left to play. Defeat for South Korea means it must now beat already-qualified Belgium to stand a chance of progressing to the knockout stages.PHOENIX - In a three-team trade on Friday, the Arizona Diamondbacks sent slick-fielding, light-hitting Didi Gregorius to the New York Yankees, where he becomes a favourite to replace Derek Jeter at shortstop.Gregorius first major league home run came in Yankee Stadium in his first at-bat as a Diamondback in 2013.The Tigers acquired right-handed pitcher Shane Greene from the Yankees and sent left-handed pitcher Robbie Ray and teenage infielder Domingo Leyba to Arizona.The Diamondbacks had a crowd at shortstop and chose to stick with youngsters Chris Owings and Nick Ahmed.The 24-year-old Gregorius hit .241 with 25 doubles, eight triples, 13 homers and 55 RBIs in 183 games over parts of two seasons with Arizona. He hit .226 in 80 games in two stints with the Diamondbacks last season.We think there is more in the tank there as he continues to develop, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. So I think hes exciting but obviously, hes not a finished product.Greene, 26, was 5-4 with a 3.71 ERA in 15 games, 14 of them starts, over four stints with the Yankees last season. He struck out 81 in what was his first season in the majors.Ray, 23, was 1-4 with an 8.61 ERA in nine appearances for the Tigers last season. He was 7-7 with a 4.22 ERA in 20 games, 19 starts, for Triple-A Toledo.Last year, in his first season as a professional, Leyba hit .323 with 18 doubles, a triple, two homers and 24 RBIs in 67 games with short-season Class A Connecticut and Class A West Michigan.Gregorius came to the Diamondbacks from Cincinnati as part of a three-team trade in 2012.

Gregorius started last season at Triple-A Reno but had two stints with the Diamondbacks, becoming the full-time starter when Owings went down with a shoulder injury.With Owings healthy, Ahmed rising through the minors and veteran Cliff Pennington still on the roster, somebody had to go.Cashman said the Yankees had targeted Gregorius for some time.We believe he hits right-handed pitching, he said. ... As we open up this 2015 season, at the very least we expect him to be utilized in probably a platoon with Brendan Ryan until he separates himself.Greene joins a Detroit rotation that includes Justin Verlander, David Price, Anibal Sanchez and Rick Porcello. Star right-hander Max Scherzer is a free agent, and although general manager Dave Dombrowski didnt totally rule out a return, he said Friday the Tigers are content with their five starters now.Were not waiting for any type of scenarios, Dombrowski said. Really, right now starting pitchings not our priority.This deal comes five years after the Tigers, Yankees and Diamondbacks pulled off another three-team trade that helped each team to a degree. Detroit got Scherzer from Arizona in that trade, while Curtis Granderson went from the Tigers to New York and Ian Kennedy was sent from the Yankees to the Diamondbacks.Ray went from Washington to Detroit last off-season in a deal that sent Doug Fister to the Nationals.We like Robbie a great deal. We made a big deal for him, Dombrowski said.
