There is nothing more exciting to sports fans than the idea of their team making a big trade that changes their fortunes. The NFL is no exception.
Every franchise, at one point or another in their histories, have made a bold move to exchange either a player or a draft pick or even a coach that has set them on a path to often untold heights. Many times even the men who executed the deal couldn’t have expected the results that would follow. It’s that great unknown, that mystery that leaves people so captivated about the idea. Trades are like a high-stakes poker game or a lottery. Make the right move and all the dreams come true.
This article will go through every single NFL franchise and detail what was the greatest trade it ever pulled off, why it was made and what the ultimate results ended up being. Rest assured the deals are focused on the one that worked out for that team, not just the biggest trade. There is a significant different between the two because the biggest trades aren’t always the most impactful.
Some took place in the draft. Others were straight swaps. All had the same thing in common. Good fortune followed.
