Nobody quite knows what Mike Ditka was smoking when he decided to trade the Saints’ entire 200 NFL Draft for Williams. It’s one of the most lopsided deals in history and a stain on the Super Bowl-winning coach’s career. Washington laughed all the way home because they robbed New Orleans blind.
In the end, Williams never stood a chance of living up to the hype. He had a brilliant college career with the Longhorns and was a solid NFL running back for several years. But even after sending all of those picks away for him, New Orleans traded him to Miami after a few seasons in the Big Easy. They essentially threw him away like yesterday’s garbage (via New York Post).
