If the reported $6.7 million over three years is accurate, it seems to be a reasonable risk to take ... all things considered. There is a risk - make no mistake - but how many draft picks are risk-free? This risk came fairly reasonably priced, I believe. Upside is large, downside not as much.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on The Trent Richardson Trade: A Closer Look
I posted the below in reply to another post but I want to be sure you see this analysis of the trade from one reporter's perspective in Boston. He quotes financial details I haven't seen from our stellar local media (although I certainly could have missed it) that, if true, may cause you think differently.
@BrianKlass - I like the trade. I'm concerned about the impact of having all these key (and potentially key) players (Luck, Hughes, Thornton, Werner, Allen, Chapman, Fleener, & Hilton to name just a few of the young guys) earning big contracts at the same time. Admittedly, not all will get to that point, but there will be several coupled with a vet or two. Luck will command a huge contract that will suck up 15-20% of the salary cap and we won't be able to pay them all.
So, in my mind, it's reasonable to take a "win now" attitude as it will necessarily take a big restructure in a few years to win with a different roster.
Here's a link to a perspective from Boston...
@Kyle Rodriguez @Bobman1 @gizzardfanny ....I'll bite. Let's try it to see which performs better.

Someone remind me why we signed Moore again...
@maestro8384 hard to find depth this late in the year.
Ona positive note, the D is playing reasonably well.
Where is Ballard, indeed...
All I want for Christmas is an offensive line...
Gotta make some hay now.
This is like an ad for drafting o-line help. Those guys are pitiful! I hope Luck doesn't get hurt today.
