Trent Richardson ended up averaging only 3.1 yards per carrying and scoring only 6 touchdowns in 2 seasons with the team and was a healthy scratch during the AFC Championship game in 2015.
Another questionable move that confused many was the drafting of Phillip Dorsett in the 1st round of the 2015 NFL draft, while the Colts offensive line was struggling to protect their franchise quarterback, and their defense coming off a less than mediocre season.
However, a trade that worked out exceptionally well for Grigson and the Colts was the acquisition of former first-round draft pick Vontae Davis in 2012 who was a big part of the 2012 turnaround and was later named to the Pro Bowl in both 2014 and 2015.
Another shrewd move by Grigson was the trade and subsequent selection of T.Y. Hilton in the 2013 NFL’s draft.
