Demanded A Trade: Eric Dickerson
If Eric Dickerson played in today’s modern, social media era, he would’ve been an internet sensation. After running for just under 7,000 yards during his first four seasons in the league (including an NFL record 2,105 yards in his second season), Dickerson was in the conversation to potentially surpass Walter Payton as the greatest running back of all time.
But the relationship between the Los Angeles Rams and Dickerson grew acrimonious, leading to the team trading him after they refused to meet his contract demands. In a staggering 10-player trade, Dickerson was traded to the Indianapolis Colts, but he wasn’t anywhere near the same guy while there.
