17. Eric Dickerson
Dickerson was brilliant for the Rams when they were at their peak. But the pair had a painful parting of the ways. His financial issues dragged on through several seasons. In 1985, he had one of the most dramatic contract holdouts of the year. He sat out for two games before they lured him back to action. This came after a record-breaking year in 1984.
In 1987, Dickerson’s problems came to a head again. This time there was no solution except for trade. The Rams sent him to Indianapolis after an impasse. It was a shame because Dickerson was brilliant for the team. The Colts didn’t see the best of him but at least he repaired his relationship with the Rams. They retired his jersey when he officially stepped away from the sport.
