Richardson helps in protection

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.
