The NFL is not known for outlandish trades. Superstar trades are usually more reserved for the NBA and MLB. But over time, there have been many well-known names that have been moved in the NFL. Often times, the players are moved for draft picks as everyone is always trying to get younger in a league that is filled with injuries.When trading someone like Steve Young, Jerome Bettis, or Randy Moss you better know what you're doing. Extra draft picks may not be worth the risk of losing a future Hall of Fame player. On the flip side, trading all your draft picks to move up in the Draft to select what you think is a sure thing can also be a drastic mistake. Everyone remembers the Chargers moving up to grab Ryan Leaf with the second overall pick, but the Chargers aren't the only team to make that mistake. Here is a list of the 15 worst trades in NFL history. Vote up which ones you think teams regret the most.
In the middle of the 1989 season, the Dallas Cowboys traded star running back Herschel Walker and four draft picks to the Minnesota Vikings for five players and eight draft picks. While Dallas didn't know what they would be getting, they knew they had the potential to hit on a lot of talent, and did they ever. From all the picks, the Cowboys ended up with future Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith and safety Darren Woodson. This led to Dallas winning multiple Super Bowls.On the other side of things, Walker ended up only playing two full seasons in Minnesota and never rushing for more than 850 yards. The Vikings gave up potentially their own dynasty for a star running back that never worked out.
