By PAUL D. WALKERThe Associated Press — SAN DIEGO — Pete Beard and the San Diego Chargers have traded running back Trent Richardson to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a 2018 first-round pick and a 2019 first-rounder, the team announced Wednesday.
It’s a deal that would give the Chargers a No. 1 running back in 2019, a third running back and a first- or second-round selection in 2019.
It also gives them two first- and second-rounder in 2019 in the same package.
The team also received a 2018 fourth-round draft pick and another first- round pick in 2019 and a 2021 second- round draft pick.
The Chargers selected Richardson in the fourth round in 2016.
He has rushed for 1,912 yards and 11 touchdowns over two seasons for San Diego.
He was a first round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014 and was cut by the Eagles before the season.
