BEREA, Ohio -- Several Browns players expressed shock at the team's decision to trade star running back Trent Richardson.

Cleveland dealt Richardson to Indianapolis on Wednesday for a first-round draft pick next year, a move that came on the same day third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer was named this week's starter and wide receiver Greg Little lost his starting job. Linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, one of the team's captains, said the Richardson trade "is a reality of this business, but you have to put your hard hat on and move forward."

Jackson said the Richardson trade "is right up there" with anything he has experienced in his seven-plus years in Cleveland. Although some Browns fans view the deal as the front office giving up on this season for the future, Jackson said "that's not even realistic, there's too much pressure on everyone to win."
