The Indianapolis Colts' acquisition of running back Trent Richardson does several things for the team's offense. Paired with quarterback Andrew Luck, Richardson could be the perfect complement capable of being a power runner. Furthermore, Richardson is also adept at catching passes out of the backfield, though it isn't the focal point of his game. However, a possibly underrated aspect of what the Colts are gaining in the trade is more help in pass protection.
