2. Tennessee Titans – Trading Away Steve Largent
It’s one thing to trade away a future Hall of Fame wide receiver, but it’s an entirely different matter to have him on your roster and not even give him a chance to play. The fourth round pick from Tulsa University was almost cut by the Houston Oilers, who selected him with a fourth-round pick in the 1976 NFL Draft, but they decided to get some salvage value from this seemingly “wasted” pick, trading him to the Seattle Seahawks at the end of the preseason of Largent’s rookie year.
After a Hall of Fame career in Seattle, Largent became the only wide receiver in NFL history (at the time) to record 100 career touchdown catches.
